Eagles Sign CB Sojourn Shelton, Waive/Injured WR Shelton Gibson

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Sunday that they’ve signed CB Sojourn Shelton and waived WR Shelton Gibson with an injury designation. 

The Shelton signing was first reported by NFL Draft Diamonds

Should Gibson clear waivers tomorrow, he would revert to the Eagles’ injured serve list.

Shelton, 24, wound up signing on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to the Bengals’ practice squad.

Cincinnati brought Shelton back on a futures contract last year only to waive him with an injury settlement during the preseason. 

During his college career at Wisconsin, Shelton recorded 129 tackles, nine interceptions, two forced fumbles and a recovery over the course of 53 games.
