Philadelphia Eagles Make Moves With 4 Free Agent Workouts and Practice Squad Adjustments In Signal Roster Tweaks

The Philadelphia Eagles are making adjustments to their roster and practice squad, with potential changes on the horizon. After the bye week, several developments have taken place:

  1. LB Anthony Barr, OG Andrew Norwell, C Lecitus Smith, and TE Noah Togiai underwent workouts as free agents, as reported by NFL insider Mike Garafolo.
  2. Center Ross Pierschbacher was officially signed to the practice squad.
  3. CB Kindle Vildor was officially released from the practice squad.

Now, let’s delve into the details for each player:

Anthony Barr

Barr, a four-time Pro Bowler, spent eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and joined the Dallas Cowboys last year. While his 2022 performance was decent, he did not solidify himself as a top-tier player. The Eagles’ interest likely stems from the potential absence of Nakobe Dean, and Barr could provide experienced depth at off-ball linebacker.

Andrew Norwell

Once considered a prized free-agent signing, Norwell’s performance did not meet expectations in Jacksonville and Washington. The Eagles may be eyeing Norwell to address recent losses in their practice squad offensive linemen, aiming to bolster their depth.

Lecitus Smith

Drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in 2022, Smith offers versatility as a guard/center. With the Eagles seeking offensive line depth, his skills could be valuable in reinforcing the roster.

Noah Togiai

Togiai, previously with the Eagles and briefly with the Cardinals, could be a potential addition to the practice squad, especially with Dallas Goedert’s injury. His familiarity with the Eagles’ scheme and special teams experience make him a suitable candidate for tight end depth.

Ross Pierschbacher

Returning to the Eagles after a previous stint, Pierschbacher provides additional depth at the center position. His signing follows the loss of Julian Good-Jones to Washington, addressing a need for insurance in that role.

Kindle Vildor

Released from the practice squad, Vildor’s departure indicates that the Eagles might not require extra cornerback depth at this time. However, the absence of a replacement suggests the team plans to make further practice squad signings in the coming week.

These adjustments reshape the Eagles’ practice squad, with several players being added and removed. The team seems focused on strengthening various positions, especially considering recent injuries and departures.
