It took a little longer than I expected, but Miami defensive end Eric Moncur is an Eagle again. The undrafted rookie was released earlier during training camp to make room for Jared Perry, but the recent release of punter Ken Parrish left a roster spot open. In case any of you forgot about Moncur, here is a brief bio via the Eagles website:
The 6-1, 237-pound Moncur registered 110 tackles and 11 sacks in his career at Miami (Fla.), posting a career high and ranking second on the team with six sacks in 2007. He attended Carol City High School in Miami, Fla., where he racked up 34 sacks in his final two seasons and earned SuperPrep All-America honors.
Since safety Antoine Harris has been moved to injured reserve, this opens up yet another roster spot, so expect to see the Eagles make a move in the safety department within the next day or so. They have already worked out undrafted rookie Terrell Skinner and veteran Jamaal Fudge.
Oh, and for any of you keeping track, the roster now stands at 79 players (Jamaal Jackson and Todd Herremans already counted towards the 80-man total despite being on the PUP list). The Eagles have until August 31st to trim their roster to 75. Who do you think will be the first to go?
