Eagles rapidly bring Cre’Von LeBlanc back
The Philadelphia Eagles re-signed Cre’Von LeBlanc on Monday morning, according to an official announcement from the group.
Everyone can now breath a sigh of relief. Strap is back.
The Eagles cut LeBlanc on Sunday afternoon in order to make room for waiver claim Jason Huntley on the 53-man roster. The Eagles could not just open up an area by immediately putting a gamer on injured reserve so they chose to use the LeBlanc loophole instead. As a vested veteran, LeBlanc was not subject to waivers, so the Eagles were able to simply re-sign him after they put 2 players– Will Parks and Quez Watkins– on IR later on Sunday.
One would envision the Eagles interacted their intents with LeBlanc to let him understand they weren’t really carrying on from him. Still, the Eagles ran the danger of another group leaping in and providing LeBlanc a raise. For Philly’s sake, luckily that didn’t take place.
This re-signing offers the Eagles five cornerbacks on the 53-man roster: Darius Kill, Avonte Maddox, Nickell Robey-Coleman, LeBlanc, and Craig James. Slay and Maddox are the two starters on the outside while NRC is poised to be the nickel man. Strap deals depth in the slot and could see some playing time in certain defensive plans. James is a backup and unique groups factor. The Eagles also have Trevor Williams, who has starting experience, on the practice team.
