Eagles Promote DT Justin Hamilton, Waive S Trae Elston

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Saturday that they’ve┬ápromoted DT Justin Hamilton┬áto the active roster and waived S Trae Elston.

Hamilton, 24, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana-Lafayette back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Buffalo before catching on with the Packers during the 2015 season.

Hamilton later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad and returned to Seattle on a future/reserve contract a year ago but was on and off of their practice squad throughout the 2016 season.

The Eagles signed Hamilton to a futures deal this past January before cutting him loose coming out of the preseason and later signing him to their practice squad.

Hamilton has yet to appear in an NFL game.
