The Philadelphia Eagles claimed three players off of waivers Sunday. They are S Terrence Brooks (Ravens), LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (Pats), and WR Bryce Treggs (49ers).
A look at each of the three:
The biggest name of the three is Brooks, who started at safety on Florida State's national championship winning team in 2013 season. He was a third round pick (79th overall) of the Ravens in 2014, and played in 23 games over the last two seasons in Baltimore, making 27 tackles and breaking up three passes.
Vice President of Player Personnel Joe Douglas, formerly of the Ravens, has familiarity with Brooks. Here's Brooks blowing up TE Delanie Walker:
Grugier-Hill was a sixth round pick of the Patriots in the 2016 NFL Draft. At his pro day, Grugier-Hill measured in at 6'2, 215 pounds, and ran a 4.45 40 yard dash. Here are how his measurables compare to Mychal Kendricks, for example:
|Drill||Mychal Kendricks||Kamu Grugier-Hill|
|40 yard dash||4.47||4.45|
|20 yard shuttle||4.19||4.20|
He could be considered a bigger "in the box" type of safety, or an undersized but athletic linebacker. At a minimum, it is likely that Grugier-Hill will be expected to use his size-speed combination on special teams, but he'll have to put on weight to play LB.
Treggs was Jared Goff's No. 1 target at Cal in 2015. He led the team with 956 yards on 45 catches, for a lofty 21.2 yards per catch average. He also ran a 4.39 at Cal's pro day.
The Eagles tried to add receivers they thought could stretch the field when they added Chris Givens and T.J. Graham this offseason. With Givens and Graham flaming out, it appears they're taking another shot with Treggs.
