Former Eagles wide receiver claimed by Texans


NFL: International Series-Philadelphia Eagles Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t mean to overreact but I think it’s fair to say the Philadelphia Eagles’ season is over.

In some truly terrible news, DeAndre Carter will not be returning to the Eagles’ practice squad. The Houston Texans claimed the 25-year-old wide receiver/punt returner via waivers on Wednesday. The Eagles had waived Carter on Tuesday in order to sign defensive tackle T.Y. McGill.

On one hand, people should be very happy for Carter. He’s worked hard to earn a spot on an NFL roster. We should be glad to see he’s getting another opportunity.

On the other hand, it’s a bummer he won’t be back with the Eagles. (For now, at least.) Carter was productive when his number was called in limited opportunities.

Assuming he remains on Houston’s roster for the rest of the season, Carter will return to Philadelphia to play against his former team in Week 16. The Eagles are set to host the Texans at Lincoln Financial Field on December 23.
