The Philadelphia Eagles have invited a total of seven tryout players to the team's rookie minicamp which begins tomorrow on Friday, May 16th.
#Eagles to have 7 tryout players at Rookie Camp: LB Caponegro, TE Childers, LB Donohue, LB Larry, C MacPherson, DB Morgan and T Steinkuhler— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) May 15, 2014
Once again, these players are not officially under contract. They have only been invited to rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Eagles' roster is currently filled at the maximum occupancy of 90. If the Eagles wanted to sign one of these players, they would have to free up a roster spot first. More likely than not the Eagles are just looking for extra bodies to fill practice repetitions.
LB Blaze Caponegro - Played for Temple. 6-1.
TE Jamie Childers - Played for Coastal Carolina. 25 years old, 6-5, 250. Previously spent time on Giants offseason roster.
LB Ryan Donohue - Played for Maryland. 6-0, 230.
LB Anthony Larry - Played for Eastern Washington. 6-3, 250. Went undrafted in 2014 but gained reported interest from some teams, including the Eagles, who worked him out.
C Mackey MacPherson - Played for Syracuse. 6-2, 286. Awesome name.
DB Davon Morgan - Played for Virginia Tech. 25 years old, 6-0, 189. Spent some time with the Jets.
T Baker Steinkuhler - Played for Nebraska. 6-6, 290.
