Eagles bring back defensive tackle from 2017 training camp

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles made a roster move on Tuesday by officially signing free agent defensive tackle Winston Craig.

The Eagles first signed Craig as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft last offseason. He didn’t much of an impact before getting waived in final cuts.

Winston returned to the Eagles during the 2017 regular season with a short-lived stint on Philadelphia’s practice squad.

Winston is primarily a defensive tackle but he played some snaps at defensive end last summer so he has a little versatility going for him. (The fact that he shares an alma mater with Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas doesn’t hurt, either.)

In all honesty, though, Winston is likely just a camp body. It doesn’t hurt to have an extra one of those since Beau Allen is set to be a free agent in March.
