Could More Eagles Roster Moves Be On the Horizon?

The promotions of Jeff Owens and Jamar Wall may not be the only moves Howie Roseman has in store for the Eagles roster. According to Fox Sports' Adam Caplan, the team has worked out five players so far this week. Jorrick Calvin would do well to watch his back.

DajLeon Farr, a tight end out of Memphis, is an undrafted rookie who has spent time with the Bills, Chargers and Cowboys this year. The Eagles ultimately went the familiar route when they chose Cornelius Ingram to fill one of the empty practice squad spots, so it's unlikely we'll hear Farr's name again.

HB/KR Clifton Smith is a two year veteran who was most remembered for his 2008 season with the Buccaneers. During that year, he had two return touchdowns - a punt return for 70 yards and a kick return for 97 yards - which was enough to garner him a Pro Bowl selection. However, Smith has a history of concussions and spent part of 2009 on injured reserve. He could be called in to replace Jorrick Calvin, who has been less than impressive on kick returns since the season-ending injury to Ellis Hobbs.

DT Tom Johnson and S Geoff Tisdale are both CFL vets, who were likely passed over in favor of the promotion of DT Jeff Owens and S Jamar Wall.

CB/KR Justin Miller is a former second round pick from the Jets' 2005 draft. Miller is primarily a kick returner, but has a reputation for taking it the distance. In his six years in the NFL, Miller has returned five kicks for touchdowns and posts a career average of 26.1 yards per return (the longest being an impressive 103 yard return in 2006). He garnered a Pro Bowl selection in 2006 and Special Teams Player of the Month in December of 2008, but has seen his production drop as of late. After leaving the Raiders in 2009, he bounced around the league for a bit, losing out return jobs to the likes of Leon Washington and LaRod Stephens-Howling.
