Eagles will bring Jamon Brown back on the practice squad

But ... why?

The Eagles released Jamon Brown on Wednesday afternoon but apparently we haven’t seen the last of him in Philadelphia. Derrick Gunn reports the team is going to bring him back on the practice squad.

The Eagles do have an open practice squad spot after signing tight end Jason Croom to the 53-man roster. But why fill it by re-signing Brown?

I don’t know. Brown clearly demonstrated that he can’t be trusted by giving up nine (!) total pressures and allowing Carson Wentz to get destroyed in last week’s Baltimore Ravens game. It’s not like he’s a super young prospect to develop, either, considering he turns 28 in March.

One could argue there’s value in keeping Brown around since he “knows the system.” Maybe he won’t be quite as bad if he has to play again in a pinch, which hopefully doesn’t happen.

But probably not. Could be better for the Eagles to try to target literally any other available guard. The alternatives aren’t plentiful but they might at least have a chance to be better than Brown, who we already know is very bad.
