NFL: MAY 10 Eagles Rookie Mini-Camp

The Philadelphia Eagles officially signed former Army offensive tackle Brett Toth, according to an announcement from the team. Toth’s signing was first reported by ESPN earlier today.

In a corresponding roster move, the Eagles waived undrafted rookie free agent cornerback Jamalcolm “Jay” Liggins.

Coming from NAIA level Dickinson State (North Dakota), Liggins was always clearly a long shot to make the Eagles’ 53-man roster. It’s at least a little surprising he got cut, though, because he didn’t seem to look all that bad in the team’s two preseason games. Some Eagles reporters — myself included — have been projecting Liggins to make Philadelphia’s 10-man practice squad.

But, alas: the Liggins era is over in Philly as the Toth era begins. It’ll be interesting to see what becomes of Toth given that he only has about two weeks before the roster cuts deadline on Saturday, August 31.

Toth is the 11th player the Eagles have added to their roster since training camp began. Can you name them all without looking it up?
