All signs are pointing to Aaron Grymes returning as a Philadelphia Eagle.

As we mentioned, Geoff Mosher reported Grymes was coming in for a physical on Monday in light of the season-ending injury Ron Brooks suffered on Sunday.

Then, his agent tweeted this out Monday afternoon:

Grymes tweeted this out, too:

So unless Grymes is an unknown fan of great birds, and everyone else, including the agency which represents him is lying to the world, Grymes is once again an Eagle. We’ll update this story when the news becomes official.

Grymes, who went undrafted out of Idaho, played in the CFL for the Edmonton Eskimos for three years before signing with the Eagles this past February. He was on the team through training camp, but he didn’t make the 53-man roster.

It’ll be interesting to see how Jim Schwartz integrates Grymes into the defense. Doug Pederson said Monday he’d like to see rookie corner C.J. Smith get more reps with Brooks out. Either way, the Eagles now have one more option at cornerback.
