Eagles sign Emmanuel Acho, release CB Shaun Prater

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

All is well in the world!

The Eagles announced they have signed ILB Emmanuel Acho off the New York Giants' practice squad and released CB Shaun Prater.

Acho was a fan favorite in training camp and preseason but didn't make the final roster (for long). Some were disappointed in the Eagles' decision to cut the second year player. Acho remained a free agent until the New York Giants signed him to their practice squad in September.

With this move, it's likely the team is looking to add depth. Eagles rookie backup ILB Jake Knott suffered a hamstring injury against the Cowboys and did not return.

Shaun Prater was originally claimed off waivers shortly after teams were required to cut their rosters down to 53. Philadelphia lacked depth at cornerback due to injury at the time, so Prater was added as a depth player. He was only active for one of the Eagles' seven games. Fellow depth CB Roc Carmichael seemed to take Prater's spot.

It's good to see the Acho man back.
