The Eagles signed cornerback Aaron Grymes from their practice squad. This made official a move we had been expecting this week, as the team had an open 53 man roster spot after last week’s release of Josh Huff.

Grymes, 25, was an undrafted free agent out of Idaho in 2013 and spent the 2013-2015 seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League, where he won the Grey Cup and was an All-Star last year. He was among final cuts for the Eagles this preseason, where he had an impressive interception.

In his press conference this morning Doug Pederson mentioned that the team would be promoting Grymes for both is ability as a corner and as a special teams player, replacing the injured Terrence Brooks for this week’s game against the Falcons.

No move to fill the practice squad has been announced.
