On the same day the Eagles placed fullback Leonard Weaver on IR, they signed his replacement. Fullback Owen Schmitt was brought in for a tryout and signed a deal with the Eagles. Former Jets & Eagles fullback Jason Davis was also reportedly brought in.
Schmitt was originally a 5th round pick of Seattle in 2008, but was cut by the team a little over a week ago.
The Eagles also promoted TE/FB Garrett Mills from the practice squad. He’ll take Jamaal Jackson’s spot on the roster, who was also placed on IR today.
