Countess, 27, was taken in the sixth round out of Auburn in 2016 by the Eagles. He was cut loose coming out of the preseason and later signed on to the Rams practice squad.
The Eagles later claimed Countess off waivers from the Rams before waiving him during the preseason with an injury settlement. From there, he caught on with the Jets and eventually signed on to the Eagles’ practice squad, but Philadelphia elected to let Countess go back in March.
Countess most recently tried out for the 49ers back in May before catching on with the Eagles once more last month.
In 2020, Countess appeared in two games for the Eagles and recorded three tackles.
