Eagles Release DT Akeem Spence, Sign DTs Anthony Rush & Albert Huggins


The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday that they’ve released DT Akeem Spence and signing DTs Anthony Rush and Albert Huggins off of practice squads. 

The Eagles also confirmed the release of CB Orlando Scandrick, which leaves them with an open roster spot.

Spence, 27, is a former sixth-round pick by the Buccaneers back in 2013. He finished his four-year, $2,644,424 rookie contract with Tampa Bay before signing a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Lions in 2017.

The Lions traded Spence to the Dolphins in 2018 for a conditional seventh-round draft pick. Miami released Spence during the preseason and he later signed on with the Eagles. 

In 2019, Spence has appeared in six games for the Eagles and recorded seven tackles and no sacks.
