Former Eagles linebacker reportedly signs

chenyan94
with Atlanta Falcons The Atlanta Falcons have signed two former Philadelphia Eagles players in one today. Earlier on Monday Jay Ajayi Jersey , the Falcons officially announced the signing of defensive end Steven Means. Now it’s veteran linebacker Corey Nelson who will reportedly be joining Atlanta’s ranks.I guess if you can’t beat the Eagles, the move is to sign their former players?I mean, you would think it would’ve been more useful for the Falcons to sign these players BEFORE they played in Philadelphia (and lost) last Thursday. Too late for them now.Another reason why Means and Nelson didn’t get signed until now is because they’re both vested veterans. As such http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-jason-kelce-jersey , their salaries for the 2018 season would have been fully guaranteed if they were on the Week 1 roster. Now that’s not the case.Getting back to Nelson, the 26-year-old was a free agent flop for the Eagles. When Philadelphia signed him to a deal worth $600,000 guaranteed on the first day of the new league year Womens Chance Warmack Jersey , it seemed like he was the favorite to be the Eagles’ new weakside linebacker. Nelson failed to win the job, though, by essentially being invisible in the offseason.Nelson was so invisible Nick Foles Jersey , in fact, that the photo selection databases which are available to us don’t even have a picture of him in an Eagles uniform. Hence the Broncos picture above this article.The Eagles released Nelson a week ahead of final roster cuts prior to their fourth and final preseason game.Here’s The Falcoholic’s take on the Nelson signing: That was quick."The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t even officially announced their undrafted free agents signings yet — that’ll probably happen right before next week’s rookie minicamp on Friday, May 10 — but one of them is already gone.The NFL’s official transaction wire shows that the Eagles waived Temple safety Delvon Randall on Thursday after previously signing him on Wednesday. Randall was waived with a partially guaranteed contract http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-deandre-carter-jersey , which means the Eagles didn’t completely pull the rug out from underneath him. The team still gave him some financial compensation for his commitment to signing with them after the 2019 NFL Draft.The Eagles could’ve decided to waive Randall because they didn’t expect Godwin Igwebuike to be available to them via waivers. Or maybe this is a sign the Eagles are going to claim Blake Countess. Or that they plan to sign Weston Steelhammer, who has connections to Doug Pederson and will participate in Philly’s minicamp.Randall is now subject to waivers. It remains to be seen if he’ll get claimed.
