The Philadelphia Eagles were awarded three players off waiver claims, according to a report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The three new Eagles players include: wide receiver Bryce Treggs (49ers), defensive back Terrence Brooks (Ravens), and linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (Patriots). In order to make room for these players on their 53-man roster, the Eagles must announce three corresponding cuts.
The 22-year-old Treggs signed with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2016 NFL Draft. San Francisco reportedly planned to sign him to their practice squad if he went unclaimed. Unfortunately for Chip Kelly's team, that wasn't the case.
Brooks has a connection with Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas. Baltimore selected Brooks with a third round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft while Douglas still worked for the Ravens.
Grugier-Hill was selected by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He projects as a safety/linebacker hybrid player. The rookie defender showed good special teams ability this summer. The Eagles needed a fifth linebacker after only keeping four on their original 53-man roster.
