The Miami Dolphins have poached a player away from the Philadelphia Eagles' 10-man practice squad. The player is actually a former member of the Dolphins, safety Jordan Kovacs. Kovacs tweeted about his return to Miami on Twitter:
Can't thank the Eagles org enough for the experience this past month. Pumped to be heading back down to MIA to play ball thougg! Fins Up!— Jordan Kovacs (@JKovacs32) November 3, 2014
The Eagles originally signed Kovacs to their practice squad in early October. The team release wide receiver Cobi Hamilton in order to make room for him.
Kovacs didn't have much of a chance to make an impact on the field but he's always be a fun part of Philadelphia trivia. Kovacs just so happens to be the player Chip Kelly was talking to when the Eagles coach rattled off that infamous "Culture wins football" quote prior to the team's Week 6 game against the New York Giants. The more you know.
Kovacs' departure probably has something to do with why the team signed veteran safety and special teams contributor Chris Prosinski to the active roster earlier on Monday evening.
With Kovacs gone, the Eagles still have one open spot remaining on their practice squad. Expect them to fill that spot shortly. Here's what it currently looks like:
QB G.J. Kinne
RB Matthew Tucker
S Ed Reynolds II
WR Will Murphy
NT Wade Keliikipi
WR Quron Pratt
G/C Josh Andrews
OT Kevin Graf
LB Brandon Hepburn
Oh and just a quick PSA:
