Week 3's theme thus far has seemingly been "Former Eagles Week." On Tuesday, former Eagles' linebackers Jamar Chaney and Omar Gaither were signed by the Falcons and Thursday will see the return of former head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Donovan McNabb, with legendary safety Brian Dawkins handling emcee duties for the latter's jersey retirement ceremony. But one day prior to the reunion at the Linc, two more former Eagles are making news.
According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals have signed former third-round pick and converted cornerback Curtis Marsh to their active roster. Marsh, who was drafted in 2011 out of Utah State, was a running back who switched to cornerback midway through his college career. The Eagles were high on him and drafted Marsh early, with the hope that he would continue to learn and develop into a starter at the position. A little over two years later, Marsh was let go a day after final cuts this off-season. While he may have the physical tools to play the cornerback position, he just failed to develop in Philadelphia.
The Broncos have announced that they have signed former Eagles' right tackle Winston Justice to a contract. Justice was a second-round pick for the Eagles in 2006 and 31 games in six seasons with the team. He was traded to Indianapolis last off-season for a swap of sixth-round picks. Justice starter 12 games for the Colts but was benched in the playoffs and was not re-signed. Justice will likely play the swing tackle for the Broncos this season, with left tackle Ryan Clady out for the season.
