The Eagles have gone back to the Canadian Football League to find another cornerback.
A year after signing Aaron Grymes from the CFL, the Eagles have signed former Michigan State and Ottawa RedBlacks corner Mitchell White.
While the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reported the signing on Monday, White's tweet about his new deal went relatively unnoticed on Saturday.
Grymes even congratulated his fellow former CFL-er.
Like Grymes, White comes to the Eagles after a Grey Cup championship and an All-Star season in the CFL.
White, 26, is 5-foot-11, 185 pounds and was once a walk-on at Michigan State, where he backed up future top NFL draft picks Darqueze Dennard and Trae Waynes.
Before joining the RedBlacks this season, White had been with the Montreal Alouettes since 2013 after going undrafted out of Michigan State. White was with the Raiders briefly after leaving Michigan State, but didn't stick.
"I love the CFL and living in Ottawa," White said to the Detroit Free Press in November, "but if the NFL comes calling, I'm going to listen."
Now, he'll have a shot this spring.
Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was originally scheduled to be in court at 9:30 a.m. in Miami on Tuesday for the beginning of his trial on a felony battery charge.
Now, that trial won't be until April.
A motion for continuance was filed and the new trial date is set for April 10, according to the Miami-Dade State State Attorney's Office. Eagles OTAs will begin in May.
The felony charge stems from a July 25 incident in Miami, when the 6-foot-2, 241-pound Bradham allegedly assaulted a hotel employee. The altercation reportedly arose from the length of time it took 50-year-old hotel employee Jean Courois to bring Bradham's group their beach umbrella.
Bradham pleaded not guilty and has said he "most definitely" expects his name to be cleared from this incident.
This was the first of two arrests for Bradham since July. He was arrested coming home from Miami from the bye week after he tried to pass through airport security with a loaded gun in his backpack.
After the second arrest, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz famously said, "You do dumbass things, pretty soon, you’re going to be labeled as a dumbass."
Bradham, 27, signed a two-year deal to join the Eagles last offseason and proved to be a good investment on the field. He played 97 percent of the defense's snaps and played at a high level as the team's starting SAM linebacker. He will have a base salary of $3.5 million this year, with a cap hit of $4.25 million.
According to a report, Jason Kelce might have already played his final game in an Eagles uniform.
The team is considering "moving on" from the veteran center by way of trade or outright release, according to PhillyVoice's Jimmy Kempski.
Kelce, 29, has a cap hit of $6.2 million in 2017 and the Eagles could save $3.8 million by cutting him after a disappointing 2016 season. He's still under contract through the 2020 season, but the Eagles could elect to move on without serious salary cap implications.
In November, Kelce gave a very honest assessment of his play: “I think that I quite frankly need to do a better job. That’s what it comes down to. I love playing in this city, I love playing in this organization, and if I’m going to keep doing that, I have to do a better job.”
The obvious choice to replace Kelce, if the Eagles decide to go this way, would be 2016 rookie Isaac Seumalo. The third-round pick played six positions last year but did not play a single snap at center, which might be his most natural spot.
Seumalo didn't play at center because for the second straight season, Kelce didn't miss a single snap. He played all 1,133 snaps in 2016 and hasn't missed a play in the last 39 games. Kelce was a sixth-round pick by the Eagles out of Cincinnati in 2011.
