Eagles Sign Undrafted Free Agent Cedric Thornton

The Eagles are hard at work bringing in undrafted free agents in an attempt to fill out their 90 man roster that will be coming to camp this Friday. In the last hours they've reportedly agreed to terms with two more UDFAs. The most notable is Cedric Thornton, DT from Southern Arkansas. Thornton is a massive guy at 6-3, 309 and played college ball in division II. He had 8.5 sacks as a junior, but was slowed by an injury all last year. Still, some saw him as a mid round pick after his junior here.

He does have some character concerns stemming from some of the field stuff. Still, a big body with a nasty attitude that our own Tommy Lawlor had as his #4 UDFA target.

Big frame, which is something that Jim Washburn likes in his DTs. Thornton played DE in college. Impressed me at the Senior Bowl where I thought he had the quickest burst off the ball of any DT. Bill Parcells is a big fan of Thornton’s.

The other signing is Indiana WR Terrance Turner. at 6-3, 209 he has a good size and was pretty productive at Indiana. Likely just a camp body.
