The Eagles announced today that they've released CB Jack Ikegwuonu(for the 2nd time this year) and signed CB Geoffrey Pope off the Bengals practice squad. From PE.com

Pope (6-0, 186) started the 2009 season on the Cincinnati Bengals active roster and appeared in four games, playing mostly on special teams. He was waived on October 8, but was signed to their practice squad the next day and has been there for the balance of the year.

Pope came into the league as a UDFA signed by the Dolphins in 2007. He spent time with the Giants, where he actually got a superbowl ring and played in the 07-08 playoffs. I suppose the thought is that having played under Steve Spagnuolo in New York, he'd at least have a working knowledge of the system here.
