The Eagles are actually stealing headlines at the moment by making some main strikes to place them again into championship competition. First, they commerce for Josiah Scott. Now they re-re-re-sign Casey Tucker?! Tremendous Bowl-bound, child.
Gentle-hearted joking apart, Tucker is certainly again for his fourth stint with the Eagles.
First time: The previous Arizona State offensive sort out initially signed with Philly as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2019. He acquired punched in a coaching camp battle with Shareef Miller, suffered a concussion, and was waived with an damage designation.
Second time: The Eagles claimed Tucker off waivers after the Detroit Lions minimize him in April 2020. He remained with the crew till the Eagles waived him to clear a roster spot after claiming Travis Fulgham final summer time.
Third time: The Eagles signed Tucker to their apply squad in late December. Not like most of their apply squad gamers, he didn’t signal a futures contract with Philly.
Fourth time: Tucker was certainly one of 5 veterans the Eagles invited to their three-day rookie minicamp. I suppose they gained’t be signing any of the 4 others: OT Caleb Benenoch, CB Obi Melifonwu, S Benny Partitions, LB Zane Zandier.
What I mentioned about Tucker when the Eagles added him for his second stint nonetheless applies: “Tucker is probably going only a camp physique for the Eagles. It helps that he has some familiarity with the system.”
Jeff Stoutland should like having him round.
