The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday that they’ve claimed CB Cre’Von LeBlanc off of waivers from the Lions and waived CB Dexter McDougle.
LeBlanc, 24, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic back in 2016. He was among New England’s final roster cuts and was quickly claimed off waivers by the Bears.
After making Chicago’s active roster for the past two seasons, the Bears elected to cut LeBlanc as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit and the Lions signed him to their practice squad before eventually promoting him.
In 2018, LeBlanc has appeared in three games and recorded three tackles and no interceptions.
McDougle, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Jets back in 2014. The Jets waived him coming out of the preseason back in 2016 and later signed him to their practice squad.
The Eagles would acquire McDougle from the Jets in exchange for S Terrence Brooks during the preseason last year. However, Philadelphia later reversed course and waived him.
McDougle has had brief stints with the Saints, Jaguars and Lions the past year or so before returning to the Eagles last month.
In 2018, McDougle has appeared in two games and recorded five tackles and a pass defense for the Eagles.
