Eagles Promote RB Josh Adams To Active Roster, Waive WR DeAndre Carter


Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Eagles are promoting rookie RB Josh Adams to their active roster on Tuesday.

The Eagles have already announced the move along with the release of WR DeAndre Carter.

Adams, 21, wound up signing on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame back in May. He signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract, but was waived coming out of the preseason as the Eagles trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Philadelphia later signed Adams to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

During his three-year college career at Notre Dame, Adams rushed for 3,201 yards on 480 carries (6.7 YPC) to go along with 41 receptions for 336 yards receiving and 22 total touchdowns over the course of 37 games.

Carter, 25, originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Baltimore before he was waived coming out of the preseason.

The Raiders later signed Carter to their practice squad before he was cut loose and later signed to the Patriots’ taxi squad. New England elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract for the 2016 season but he was among their final roster cuts at the last of the regular season.

The 49ers signed Carter to a contract last year and eventually brought him back on a futures contract this past January. However, he was waived shortly after this year’s draft and later signed by the Eagles.

In 2018, Carter has appeared in two games and caught one pass for 10 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
