Philadelphia Eagles sign cornerback from Canadian Football League

The Eagles added another player to their roster.

The Philadelphia Eagles are set to sign Canadian Football League defensive back Aaron Grymes, according to an announcement from his representation.

The 24-year-old Grymes measures in at 5-11, 185 pounds. He played college football at Idaho for three years before signing with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2013. In three seasons with Edmonton, Grymes played in 41 games. He finished his CFL career with 101 tackles, eight interceptions, and one sack. Four of those picks came last season. Grymes was named to the 2015 CFL All-Star team.

The Eagles are likely already set with Byron Maxwell and Eric Rowe as their two starting cornerbacks. Grymes will be competing for a roster spot with the likes of unproven and inexperienced cornerbacks such as JaCorey Shepherd, Randall Evans, and Denzel Rice. Adding Grymes now makes sense since the Eagles could potentially lose Nolan Carroll and/or E.J. Biggers in free agency.

Grymes seems like an energetic guy.
