A couple Eagles expressed their approval over the selection of Sidney Jones in the second round of the NFL draft.

One former Eagles linebacker, however, took the opportunity to rip the team.

UPDATE: Later, he added this:

Acho spent three seasons in the NFL and last played in 2014 for the Eagles, who released him with an injury settlement right before the 2015Β season. He needed thumb surgery.

Anyway ... current Eagles Carson Wentz and Lane Johnson approved of the pick.

As did his former teammate Kevin King, who went to the Packers with the first pick of the second round.

As for Jones, he is recovering from a torn Achilles but expects to be ready to play sometime next season.
