Eagles bring Emil Igwenagu back to the Practice Squad

New, comments

What a relief.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Well, that's a relief. The Eagles have brought FB/TE Emil Igwenagu back on their practice squad after releasing him on Monday. Philadelphia cut the tight end to make room on the active roster for wide receiver B.J. Cunningham.

Igwenagu, signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2012 NFL Draft, spent most of his first year on the Eagles practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster late in the season. The tight end then showed enough to Eagles coaches in 2013 training camp to justify keeping him on the 53 man roster. Despite making the roster, Emil was never active for any of the Eagles first six games this season.

The open practice squad spot came about when the New York Jets signed away Greg Salas yesterday. Igwenagu fills the eighth and final practice squad spot.

The Eagles' practice squad is now full again:

DE Brandon Bair
OT Michael Bamiro
CB Marcus Burley
S Keelan Johnson
OLB Travis Long
WR Will Murphy
TE Emil Igwenagu
RB Matthew Tucker
