Eagles promote Alex Singleton

The Eagles promoted linebacker Alex Singleton from the practice squad, Mike Kaye of nj.com reports.

Singleton is expected to make his NFL debut against the Cowboys on Sunday.

The two-time CFL all-star has spent the season on the practice squad. He made 27 tackles and forced a fumble during the preseason, including 14 tackles in the preseason finale against the Jets.

Singleton could have returned to the CFL after being cut out of the preseason but chose to join the Eagles’ practice squad hoping for a shot in the NFL.

He now gets that.

The Eagles cut linebacker Zach Brown on Monday.

  1. Can’t make our D much worse.

    Ben Solak had an amazing challenge yesterday; name one Eagles player acquired in the past 3 years who plays better now than when they were signed.

    Sure you can defend someone like Derek Barnett who has sort of improved but by and large there’s nobody to mention.

    Moreover there’s a lot of acquisitions who are worse now than when signed.

  2. Glad for Singleton. Smart, solid player and from all accounts should’ve made the Eagles out of camp. Could’ve come back to Canada and made a decent salary, but this is one of those “you never know how I will get my chance moments” after Browns spouting off basically caused his release.

  3. @cobrala2: I listened to Ben Solak as well. He did an excellent commentary and breakdown of how Schwartz and his coaches have not really improved a single defensive back since their rookie season. They just don’t get better. I like that this guy is getting a shot, especially since he took the chance of staying here to get that shot.
