The Eagles on Monday morning signed former Ohio State linebacker Chris Worley.
With the move, the Eagles' roster is full again at 90 after they released veteran linebacker Paul Worrilow on Sunday afternoon. Worrilow was coming back from an ACL injury and was struggling to stay healthy.
Worley, 23, won’t have much time to impress the coaching staff in Philly, but he’ll at least have a shot.
After going undrafted in 2018, Worley spent his rookie season with the Bengals and played in two games. But Cincinnati released him late last month. From there, Worley signed with the Seahawks on Aug. 6, but lasted just four days before Seattle waived him.
Coming to Philly, Worley joins a linebacker group that includes Nigel Bradham, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Nathan Gerry, Zach Brown, L.J. Fort, Alex Singleton, T.J. Edwards and Asantay Brown. The top two are injured right now, so the Eagles needed a linebacker to take practice reps and to play in the final two preseason games.
There is potentially a roster spot up for grabs too. Worley is coming in late, but with a strong couple weeks, he could get in the mix, although he might be fighting for some extra tape and maybe a practice squad spot.
The Eagles are back at practice this afternoon as they host their first of two joint sessions with the Baltimore Ravens. They will play the Ravens on Thursday night at the Linc.
