Bummer, but good for him.

Eagles practice squad wide receiver Bryce Treggs is leaving Philadelphia to sign with the Cleveland Browns. Treggs tweeted about the news on Tuesday afternoon.

This is good news for Treggs. He gets a chance to be on an NFL roster for at least three weeks and potentially more.

For the Eagles, however, this news is a bummer. Treggs had a good preseason for Philadelphia; he led the team in receiving this summer with 12 catches for 141 yards.

The Eagles didn’t really need Treggs around since they already have six receivers on the 53-man roster and another one (Greg Ward Jr.) on the practice squad. Still, Treggs gave them nice depth in case of injury.

Treggs originally joined Philadelphia’s roster after being claimed by the Eagles during final cuts last year. He had three receptions for 80 yards in nine games played.

Now that Treggs is moving on to Cleveland, the Eagles have an open practice squad spot. The Eagles filled the vacancy left by promoting Justin Hamilton by signing a former Patriots cornerback to their scout team on Tuesday. Expect the Birds to announce another practice squad signing this week.
