Philadelphia Eagles Sign Four Undrafted Free Agents in Midnight Rush

Terrance Turner - Indiana

The moment that NFL teams were able to start signing players, even though it was restricted to undrafted free agents, most teams jumped at the chance. The Eagles were no different, making a splash early on by inking Miami University running back Graig Cooper, and Philadelphia later signed three more players from various schools.

Here are the newest additions to the Eagles:

Graig Cooper, RB, University of Miami

Terrance Turner, WR, Indiana

Cedric Thronton, DT, Southern Arkansas

Martell Webb, TE, Michigan

The Eagles have been making moves early, and seem to be adding insurance to an already great draft. Adding some depth to the wide receiver postion, running back, defensive tackle, and also finding a reliable alternative to Brent Celek. Keep in mind that most of the picks, especially Cooper, will more than likely not make the team, and most are practice squad pick-ups.

My personal favorite pick so far is signing Webb from Michigan. Last season Celek was inconsistent and could not be relied on, and now the Eagles have some depth and an actual alternative when Celek is faltering. The worst case scenario is that is turns up the heat for Celek, which hopefully will help him perform like he did two years ago.

This is just the very beginning of a very crazy week for the NFL and the Eagles. Due to the unique nature that the lockout has put teams in, they will be forced to sign free agents faster than usual.
