Eagles Multitasking with Futures Deals
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - You have to be able to multitask in the NFL and Howie Roseman is doing exactly that as the Eagles prepare for the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional Round of the playoffs on Sunday.
The Eagles signed lengthy wide receiver Carlton Agudosi to a reserve/future contract on Monday. Agudosi, a 24-year-old Rutgers product, is a king-sized wideout at 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds. He originally signed as an undrafted free agent in Arizona back in 2017 and spent some time on the Cardinals practice squad.
Agudosi wasn't terribly productive with the Scarlet Knights, hauling in 35 catches for 513 receiving yards and two touchdowns over 45 games but his size obviously intrigues NFL scouts.
The Eagles currently have receivers Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Golden Tate, Mike Wallace, Jordan Matthews and Shelton Gibson on the active roster as well as Braxton Miller and Dorren Miller on the practice squad. The team also has agreed to sign former CFL wide receiver Marken Michel to a reserve/future deal, according to an NFL source
Tate, Wallace and Matthews are all set to become free agents in March, however.
The Eagles are also set to sign former Montana State linebacker Alex Singleton as well. The reigning CFL tackle leader with Calgary, Singleton was in demand around the NFL, working out with Cleveland, Arizona, Minnesota, the LA Chargers as well as the Eagles last month.
A middle linebacker Singleton had cups of coffee with Seattle, New England and Minnesota before giving the CFL a try in Calgary where he was the league's Defensive Player of the Year in 2017 and an all-star for the second straight campaign in 2018.
Jordan Hicks, the Eagles current starter in the middle, is set to become a free agent in March.
