The Philadelphia Eagles signed cornerback Kevon Seymour to a futures contract, according to an official announcement from the team. Talk about a roster move that’ll spice up your Friday night.
The Eagles originally signed Seymour, 27, to their practice squad in early December. 10 days later, the team promoted him to the roster since they were dealing with multiple cornerback injuries.
Seymour played 56% of the Eagles’ defensive snaps during the team’s Week 14 win over the New Orleans Saints. It was his first taste of regular season NFL action since last playing with the Carolina Panthers all the way back in 2017.
Seymour played 69% of the Eagles’ defensive snaps against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15. He suffered a knee injury in that game which caused him to land on injured reserve.
Prior to getting hurt, Seymour did OK relative to extremely low expectations. Small sample size, though.
Now on a futures contract, Seymour will have a chance to compete for a spot on the 2021 roster. He’ll have to make the most of his first full offseason with the Eagles.
Seymour is the 11th player to sign a futures contract with the Eagles this week. They’ve still yet to sign 2020 sixth-round pick Prince Tega Wanogho.
