The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday that they’ve signed CB JaCorey Shepherd to their practice squad and released G Darrell Greene from the unit.
The Eagles’ practice squad now consists of:
- RB Byron Marshall
- CB JaCorey Shepherd
- DT Aziz Shittu
- WR David Watford
- LB Don Cherry
- FB Andrew Bonnet
- WR Paul Turner
- C Aaron Neary
- CB C.J. Smith
- QB Aaron Murray
Shepherd, 23, was taken in the sixth-round of last year’s NFL draft by the Eagles. He signed a four-year, $2,401,112 contract with Philadelphia and was set to make a base salary of $525,000 when he was cut loose coming out of the preseason.
Last year, Shepherd, unfortunately, sustained a torn right ACL and subsequently missed the entire 2015 season.
During his college career, Shepherd recorded 90 tackles, a sack, no interceptions, a forced fumble, two recoveries and 24 pass defenses over the course of four seasons.
