Eagles sign linebacker Nicholas Morrow to Practice Squad
The Eagles signed linebacker Nicholas Morrow on Monday to their practice squad.
The team also added OL Tyre Phillips to the practice squad and released CB Tiawan Mullen and LB Kyron Johnson.
Morrow, 28, was signed by the Eagles this offseason to a one-year deal, after spending the previous season with the Bears where he had a career-high 116 tackles in 17 starts. The veteran linebacker went undrafted in 2017 and signed with the Raiders, where he spent his first five seasons.
He signed a non-guaranteed deal during the offseason with the Eagles, trying to earn a job, after 2022 starters T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White departed via free agency.
However Morrow was released on cut-down day, and the team added him for depth, bringing him back to their Practice Squad on Monday.
Eagles Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman explained why Morrow didn't make the initial 53=man roster back on August 29th.
"I don't know that it's so much about what Nick did as opposed to being really heavy at some other positions here," Roseman explained back on August 29th.
The team added veteran linebacker Zach Cunningham, and he appears to have won the job over Morrow next to second-year man Nakobe Dean.
The team also cut ties with Johnson, a 2022 sixth-round pick out of Kansas, who made eight tackles last season.
They also signed former 2020 third-round draft pick, Tyree Phillips, who spent last season with the New York Giants. Before that he played in 22 games across two seasons, making 13 starts in Baltimore before being waived by the Ravens.
