Eagles bring offensive tackle back for a fourth stint in Philly


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.
