Eagles activate Brandon Graham

Graham_Brandon

With the deadline for adding defensive end Brandon Graham to the active roster or shutting him down for the season looming, the Eagles have placed the 2010 first-round pick on the 53-man roster.

To create a space for Graham, the Eagles released guard Kyle DeVan.

Graham had three sacks in 13 games as a rookie.  He suffered a torn ACL late in the season.

The Eagles elevated Graham from the physically unable to perform list on October 24.

    just as long as he does not get injured he should be on pace to get back to where he was before the injury by the start of next season. do not count on him actually contributing anything significant this season.

    Im interested to see him in the wide 9. His skill set is really suited for it.

    Graham probably still isn’t ready. He hasn’t played in a long time and came in out of shape from a long lockout where he couldn’t talk to any of the trainers. Then he has to learn from a new line coach and learn the new scheme. The move was made so that we can use Graham at some point this season.

    By the 3rd quarter of the season he’s gonna show why he was the number 15 pick…. Get som BG!

    The Eagles rotate their dline to keep guys fresh but still don’t see him getting much playing time with Babin and Cole at the de’s. If Jaqua Parker didn’t have a high ankle sprain he probably wouldn’t have been activated. parker s injury with the fact they traded up in the first rd to get this guy is why he.was activated. I’m huge birds fan and can’t believe Jason Pierre Paul is a giant and not an Eagle. Hopefully BG can show why the took.him over JPP.

    I guess some people dont realize that Brandon Grahams stats from last season were on par with PJJ, even with Graham missing 3 games. Lets at least let Graham get his 2nd season under his belt before we judge him. I agree with one of the other posters that the wide 9 is a good fit for a pass rusher like BG. You dont need to be tall to have a good rush off the edge. Look at Freeney and Mathis. Shoot, look at Trent Cole and Babin. With Tapp and BG coming in the rotation, this Eagles D-line should continue to get pressure with their 4 down linemen.

    Big eagles fan here, but I wasnt overly impressed with Graham last year. Completely disappeared in a lot of games. Hopefully coming off of this injury he’s been watching film and he can contribute a decent amount and become a consistently productive player.

    Don’t forget mcdumdass had him playing tackle most of the time. That’s how he blew his knee out.

    Parker is probably out, so he’ll get some snaps.

    the eagles also dressed steve smith for a number of games. that doesn’t mean he’s ready…

    I really wanted the Falcons to land him last year. Needless to say Sean Weatherspoon has worked out better. I think he is in the top 5 for total tackles this season. Solid.

    don’t know if he’s really ready or not, but he was much better than most people thought he was before getting hurt. like Nate Allen, who was shaky at first coming off an injury but is really playing well now, it will probably take him a month or so to be full strength but by then he’ll be a good reinforcement to an already fearsome front 4.
