The Eagles need help at the cornerback and according to Jeremy Fowler the team had hoped to add Jimmy Moreland without having to guarantee his contract.
By waiting for the end of Week 1 to add Moreland, Philadelphia would have avoided having to pay his full salary. Now the slot machine’s cornerback will be heading to Houston after years in Washington.
The Eagles also signed cornerback Mac McCain from the Broncos practice team on Tuesday.
