Eagles add LB Adrian Moten, who was here for Training Camp, to the active roster. LB Brian Rolle released to make room.


Rolle started 13 games at WILL for the Eagles last season, but lost his spot during this year's training camp. ST mistakes ended up costing him a job, and he has some major size concerns.

Moten was on our pre-season roster.

Hope the Bengals take a look at him. Our LB's outside of Burfict and Lawson have been terrible...

Maybe this can light a fire under his behind.

Eh Rolle is strictly a situational, nickel coverage guy who isn't great on special teams. He can still be a contributor, but his size limits him from ever being a good starter.

Terrible would actually be a step up for Rey. IIRC he's 2nd in the league in missed tackles. Plus he sucks in coverage. Not sure what's going on with him, but it would be tough for him to play any worse.

I thought Rolle was decent when he played last season for the Eagles. Not great but better than what I've seen out of Rey and some of the other Bengal LB's this season...

Hope the Rams take a look at him too, we need a nickel OLB with speed and I always liked Rolle.

it shows you how much the Eagles LB core has been upgraded. Rolle started 13 games last year, now he is off the team.

maybe it wasn't this site, but I remember seeing a few Eagles fans claiming that Rolle was going to be a HoFer...whoops.

I guess that means that not every undrafted rookie who winds up starting a few games is an absolute steal. sometimes its just a matter of not having anybody better to put out there.
