Eagles re-sign CB Curtis Marsh to bring roster to 53

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Eagles felt they needed to add more depth at cornerback.

The Philadelphia Eagles brought back a familiar face to the team when they announced the re-signing of cornerback Curtis Marsh on Tuesday morning. Marsh, a third round draft pick by the team in 2011, was released by the Eagles earlier this year. The CB suffered a broken hand in pre-season which caused him to be placed on injured reserve. The Eagles then waived Marsh from the IR list with an injury settlement in early September.

Marsh recently spent time with the Bengals. They signed him in preparation for Week 3 of the NFL season before ultimately releasing him on October 1st.

The Eagles brought back Marsh because they lack depth at CB. Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher are the starters on the outside, with Boykin as the slot CB. Roc Carmichael is the only reserve corner. It should be noted Fletcher left the Eagles-Raiders game with an injury. It's unclear if he will practice this week.

Philadelphia didn't need to make a corresponding roster move because they still had an open spot on the roster due to the Isaac Sopoaga trade last week. The roster now stands full at 53.
