Eagles Designate Four Players To Return From Injured Reserve

The Eagles announced they have designated four players to return from injured reserve, including first-round WR Jalen Reagor, LT Jason Peters, LB T.J. Edwards and S Rudy Ford.

This opens a 21-day window for these players to practice with the team before Philadelphia needs to make a decision on adding them to the active roster. 

Reagor, 21, was a three-year starter at TCU and earned second-team All-Big 12 honors as a receiver and returner before being selected by the Eagles with the No. 21 pick in the draft.

Reagor signed a four-year, $13,270,677 rookie contract that includes a $7,211,401 signing bonus. The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Eagles to pick up for the 2024 season.

In 2020, Reagor has appeared in two games for the Eagles and caught five passes for 96 yards. 

During his three-year career with TCU, Reagor recorded 148 receptions for 2,248 yards (15.2 YPC) and 22 touchdowns. He also had 35 carries for 324 yards (9.3 YPC) and two touchdowns.

Peters, 38, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas back in 2004. He spent five years in Buffalo before being traded to the Eagles in 2009.

Peters signed a four-year, $53 million extension in Philadelphia after the trade. Last year, Peters signed another one-year extension worth $6 million for the 2019 season. 

Philadelphia brought Peters back on a one-year, $3 million contract this past June. The Eagles restructured his contract last month to make it worth up to $8 million and includes $4 million guaranteed.

He’s started all three games for the Eagles so far this season. 

In 2019, Peters started 13 games for the Eagles at left tackle.  He was Pro Football Focus‘ No. 6-ranked tackle out of 83 qualifying players.  

Ford, 25, was selected in the sixth round out of Auburn in 2017 by the Cardinals. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.54 million contract and set to make a base salary of $645,000 when he was traded to the Eagles during the 2019 preseason. 

In 2020, Ford has appeared in four games for the Eagles and recorded five total tackles and no interceptions.

Edwards, 24, signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin in 2019. He made the team coming out of camp and is in the second year of his three-year, $1.767 million deal. 

In 2020, Edwards has appeared in four games for the Eagles and recorded 14 total tackles and one forced fumble.
