Eagles add Ed Wang

The Eagles are stockpiling former fifth-round draft picks.

Earlier this week, it was former Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon, a fifth-round pick of the Steelers in 2008.  Now, the Eagles have announced the addition of offensive lineman Ed Wang, a fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2010.

Wang, the first Chinese-American player ever drafted by an NFL team, played in six games as a rookie, and then he spent all of 2011 on injured reserve. Wang signed with the Raiders during the 2012 offseason, but he later was cut.

He could eventually be cut by the Eagles.  In the offseason, teams may now have 90 players.  By September, that number drops to 53.

  1. The Eagles like those Buffalo Bill cast offs. Tells you how the Eagles got to where they are now.

    Peters, Bell, Wang, Edwards- Who did I miss?

  2. Oh I missed Chip Kelly – He technically interviewed with Buffalo first, who hired another coach instead 🙂

    Ever heard of Eugene Chung?? He was the first Chinese-American player ever drafted by an NFL team – PATRIOTS..

    Wasn’t Chung Korean? He’s now an o-line assistant in Phi, and also went to Va Tech like Wang. Maybe it was his idea to bring him in?

    You are correct

  5. It’s not ok to hate someone because they are Chinese. It is ok to hate them because they are from China though.

  6. Left tackle Jason Peters was traded to the Eagles Marv know it all and has made the Pro Bowl every year.

  7. Those people above are right about the ancestry, but wrong about the assistant o line coach for the Eagles part. He WAS an asst. O line coach for the Eagles until Andy Reid was fired, now Greg Austin is the asst O line coach, and Jeff Stoutland is the main O line coach. Chung followed Reid to KC and has the same job there as he had in Philly.

  8. @marvsleezy-
    I dont get how you and others try and talk smack about the Birds getting crap players from Buffalo and include Peters? You do understand that he was/if not the best left tackle in football untill he was forced to miss last season due to injury??? Not only b/c his pass blocking but he is so athletic down field blocking on screens and quick pitches, theres no one else like him. He can anchor the bull rush, move with the speed rush, and run 30yrds down field to blowup a safety to spring Shady. Hes a physical specimen for his size(He played TE) N we can only hope that he comes back at full strength. Only reason we got bell was a temp. stop gap untill Peters was healthy, there was no way he was going to see that 36mil or w/e it was. Bell like Peters is athletic, also played TE in his past and the eagles thought Mudd could use his athleticism similar to JP getting out ahead in open space to make room for the athletes~turned out that he couldn’t block or stay onsides to which it dosent matter if he can move or not bc he was a liability like most of their patched up oline was this yr. So not ranting just dont understand why you guys include mybe the best LT in football when you are including former Bills.

    No, Eugene Chung was the first Korean-American drafted by an NFL team. Ed Wang is the first Chinese-American.

  10. I am glad that Wang was signed again. He is a really good person, always friendly with the fans. Its amazing how much we Americans take the little things in life for granted. Ed Wang always seemed extremely grateful for what he received, even the little things like a vehicle. He is a big user of Twitter, giving updates on his experiences here and when he travels back to China. Good guy.
