Eagles Add Cornerback, Release Curtis Marsh, Sign 4 To Practice Squad

praterThe Eagles made a minor tweak to their roster on Sunday, claiming cornerback Shaun Prater off of waivers from Cincinnati and releasing Curtis Marsh. Prater was a fifth-round pick of the Bengals in 2012, but has yet to appear in an NFL game after spending all of last season on injured reserve.

Marsh, a 2011 third-round pick, made absolutely no positive contributions of any kind during his time in Philadelphia. His release now means that the Eagles’ top three picks from the 2011 draft (Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett, and Marsh) are now no longer with the team. The 2011 draft may easily go down as one of the worst in Eagles’ history. Its because of three wasted high draft picks like these that the Eagles are in the position they’re in right now.

The Eagles also added four players to their practice squad, signing offensive tackle Michael Bamiro, wide receiver Greg Salas, linebacker Travis Long, and running back Michael Tucker.

  • Good move bringing back Bamiro, he could be something down the line.

  • If Shaun Prater is healthy he will be a good pick up. He is a strong physical tackler with pretty good speed. More of a zone guy.

  • Yes a good move, now sign Safety Winston Guy who was a final cut from the Seahawks and Release Nate Allen or Colt Anderson and this Eagle Secondary just got a lot better..

    • Agreed Pman

  • I’m watching Louisville vs Ohio. Teddy Bridgewater looks very natural and fluid as a passing QB. Extremely accurate strong arm and makes good decisions with the ball. He would look really good in the Eagle uniform.

    I’m not familiar with the Louisville d backs but they look like the long rangey type out in Seattle.

    • Louisville’s HC Curtis Strong is high on a lots Teams Radar as a Future HC in the NFL.. He and Shaw from Stanford,
      Fitzpatrick of Northwestern, Miles of LSU, Will be on many WNt to talk list next Season
      I see the Raiders,, Panthers, Lions,Jets, & Titans all making Coaching Changes next Season and possibly the Cowboys if they falter again this Season.. Jerry Jones has a lot of $$ tied up in Asst Coaches (Kiffin,Marinelli & Callahan) to pull the plug completely and tied into these older Coaches thru 2014, though I could see Jones firing Garrett and replacing him with OC Callahan who wants a HC Spot in the worst way..the atory of the 2013 Cowboys is the strained relationship between Garrett and his Staff who were hand picked by Jones and his Son Stevme causing a lack of Authority for Garrett which is never a good thing for any HC

  • Panthers released Rookie Safety Robert Lester, formerly of Alabama
    Who may be worth a workout & film study
    Lester was highly rated after Junior Season, but decided to return back to Alabama, got dinged up his Senoir Season and did not perform all thatcwe at Senior Work outs dropping his Draft Value
    There are also Veteran CB Richard Marshall & Drayton Florence out on the streets who at least have NFL Experience and would be upgrades over Hughes & Poyer.. PlYers needs a year on Practice Squad, he is not NFL ready at all

    • Robert Lester was very good in his junior year. During his senior year he looked slow to read and react. It wouldn’t hurt to see what he can do though. Any word on MarvinAustin being picked up?

      • I haven’t anything about Austin yet..
        I am sues he will be signed by someone by Monday and probably has a few offers out there he’s mulling over..

  • What a damn joke. 3 wasted picks and nothing to show for. Mind as well throw in Nate Allen too. I know he is still with the team, but he will soon be gone. Aren’t these Roseman’s picks?

  • Teddy bridgewater sucks ass. Aaron Murray, Taj Boyd, and the maniac Johnny Football are all better

    • You lost all creditability listing Murray with that group. He’ll never start a game in the NFL.

      • I agree Geirgia’s Murray will go down as good College QB but lacks the Size,arm strength & vision to play at the NFL Level
        He’s a 3 Year Starter on a strong Program but gas not improved much in my opinion and looked pretty flustered the other night versus Georgia and has a 1-10 Career Record against Top 10 Teams in head to head battles..

        • Right Paul…..not all starting COLLEGE superstar QB’s, will flourish in the pros, nor succeed, and he is one of them.

    • Aaron Murray, lol. Tajh Boyd is no where near a better passer than Bridgewater. Boyd is a system QB, Bridgewater can drop back and pass all day without having to use his legs to make plays, but he does have the legs to do so. If you can go back and watch Bridgewater’s games against S. Carolina and Florida last year. That’ll end all doubt about his level of play against high competition. Bridgewater will get drafted no later than second. Tahj Boyd and Johnny autographs will go later. Manziel has already hurt his draft status because he’s a punk and teams are going to not want to use a high pick on him because of questionable character and poor decision making.

  • The Raiders who are desperate for a QB cut Draft Pick QB Tyler Wilson who they Drafted out of Arkansas and some thought as a good NFL Propect which is pretty bad considering how poor the Raiders QB Group is not to be able to make the Team..

  • Will 2013 Season be the Final Season in Green for the following home drafted Players ..
    Brett Celek, Todd Herremans, Trent Cole, Brandon Graham & Nate Allen

  • ****Eagles Add Safety Trenton Robinson to their Practice Squad who was released by the 49ers.. Robinson (5-10″ – 220lbs) was a 5th Round Draft Oick in 2012 from Mich State but unable to make the 49ers deep Roster this year..
    A big hitter, tough guy and a Special Teams demon who could find his way onto the a give Roster by mid-Season or sooner if any injuries occur..
    I am surprised the Eaglez just don’t activate him no to the Roster and waive Anderson, for there is a good likelihood that another Team will Scoop him up from Practice Sayad once Season Starts and injuries occur around the NFL
    Bring him up now and see what he’s got.. Anderson is a good guy, but Eagles gave 20 Players who can Play Special Teams, which is about all Anderson brings to the table and they need more than this..
