UPDATE: The Eagles officially confirmed the Alex Singleton signing, in addition to the Carlton Agudosi signing. Original story below.
The Philadelphia Eagles signed free agent wide receiver Carlton Agudosi to a reserve/future contract, according to an official announcement from the team.
To be clear, Agudosi has not been signed to the active 53-man roster. This signing is being made for the 90-man offseason roster.
The Eagles worked out Agudosi, along with several other players, back on Christmas Eve. Here’s what we wrote about the 24-year-old at the time.
The 6-6, 220 pound Agudosi played college football at Rutgers and spent some time on the Cardinals’ offseason roster/practice squad after signing with Arizona as an undrafted free agent in 2017. Intriguing size.
Sounds like he’s the new Ifeanyi Momah!
Agudosi’s appeal is more about potential than production. In four years playing for the Scarlet Knights, he only managed to have 35 receptions for 513 yards (14.7 average) and two touchdowns.
Agudosi will be a long shot to make the Eagles’ 2019 roster but it’s worth taking a closer look at what he can do this offseason
In other news, the Eagles have reportedly signed Canadian Football League linebacker to a future contract (h/t @RoncadConrad). The team hasn’t confirmed this signing yet but Singleton was one of the other players the Eagles worked out on Christmas Eve. Here’s what we wrote at the time about the 6-2, 235 pound defender:
Singleton attended Montana State and spent some time on offseason rosters/practice squads with the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, and Patriots in 2015. Singleton then got selected by the Stampeders with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2016 CFL Draft and has been with them since. The 25-year-old Singleton is a tackling machine; he’s logged 311 in 54 games played. He’s also posted six forced fumbles, four sacks, and one interception over three seasons.
Singleton’s strong production makes his worth taking a look at this offseason. Jordan Hicks is set to be a free agent so it can’t hurt to bring in some more bodies at linebacker.
The Eagles also reportedly signed Calgary Stampeders wide receiver Marken Michel to a future contract last week but they haven’t officially confirmed that transaction just yet.
Eagles clearly not afraid to look for help north of the border.
