Eschewing any triskaidekaphobic tendencies, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced the addition of 13 new undrafted free agents.

They are: WR Elvis Akpla (Montana State); LS Matt Camilli (UTEP); TE Chase Ford (Miami); CB Cliff Harris (Oregon); FB Emil Igwenagu (Massachusetts); WR McKay Jacobson (BYU); WR Damaris Johnson (Tulsa); WR Aaron Pflugrad (Arizona State); RB Chris Polk (Washington);  FB Jeremy Stewart (Stanford); FS Phillip Thomas (Syracuse); P Ryan Tydlacka (Kentucky); WR Darnell Williams (Louisiana College).

The biggest name is Polk, who widely was expected to be drafted.  He joins a depth chart that includes LeSean McCoy, Dion Lewis, Graig Cooper, and seventh-round rookie Bryce Brown.

    If Cliff Harris can stay out of trouble that would be a huge pickup

    Cliff Harris is a lock down corner/returner with blazing speed, but acts like a knucklehead off the field.

    Chris Polk will soon be declared the second coming of Barry Sanders.

    Dream Team 2.0 … locked and loaded.

    Graig Cooper, not Craig.

    All you geniuses mocking the Vince Young dream team statement are going to have some crow to eat when the Eagles fly this year.

    Jenniferxxx: Is a secret Eagles lover… What does xxx mean? Maybe you should go find a Milf site

    & Harris are both great pick-ups.. Im amazed that neither got drafted.

    I’ve been hyper critical of Howie Roseman but he had a great draft. If everyone can stay healthy the Eagles have a legitimate chance to dominate both sides of the ball.

    Wow. Never heard that before. Isn’t EVERY year the “Eagles Year”?

    I think Polk has a better chance to stick than Bryce.

    harris, thank god!!

    I think Jenniferxxx is a dude. I also think that Jennifer is his webcam “girlfriend” that he pays $10 a night to make him feel like a boss man.

    Pay no credence to the fool, the Eagles had a great draft and now we get to wait forever to find out which guys on which teams will flop or not.

    I love how people comment like they know who these scrubs are.

    Cliff Harris? I guess the Bengals aren’t the only team that signs problem players. You wouldn’t guess that by the way people talk.

    Polk, whose numbers are eye-popping – 4,049 rushing yards in his three-year career, second-most in school history. He ran for 1,341 yards last season and caught 29 passes for 324 yards. He had 15 touchdowns. Picks up blitzes well too.

    Nice way to cap a great weekend!

  18. jenniferxxxsuxcox says: Apr 29, 2012 9:35 PM

    eagles/bucs/bengals had hands down the best drafts. dion lewis should be pooping himself right now. eagles will battle the vagiants for the division and the cowgirls and lolskins are still jokes.

    Polk wasn’t drafted because of medical red flags….
    he will have to pass a physical before he can even get on the field. but definitely a productive player in college.

    Polk has had shoulder problems and surgery for a torn meniscus, but at this point the minimal risk is worth the potential reward. It’s a good pickup if he can avoid further injury.

    Let grow up on here this isn’t high school geeeesh kids

  22. ptlsands says: Apr 30, 2012 12:08 PM

    should have added Kirk Cousins instead.. he would have been a good prospect to follow.

  23. oldbyrd says: May 1, 2012 11:30 AM

    Polk is a good kid. I hope he is healthy. If he is healthy…..well, remember Wilburt Montgomery…injured pick from Abaline Christian…..Healthy Polk is a no cost Home Run for The Birds.
