Eagles Sign G Darrell Greene To Practice Squad, Cut LB Don Cherry

The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they’ve signed G Darrell Greene to their practice squad and waived LB Don Cherry from the unit.

The Eagles’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. RB Byron Marshall
  2. DT Aziz Shittu
  3. WR David Watford
  4. WR Paul Turner
  5. C Aaron Neary
  6. QB Aaron Murray
  7. G Matt Rotherman
  8. Darrell Greene
  9. DB Duke Thomas
  10. TE Anthony Denham

Greene, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of San Diego State back in May. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason and has been on and off of their practice squad ever since.

Cherry, 21, wound up signing on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Villanova back in May. However, he lasted just over a month in Chicago before the Bears placed him on waivers.

The Eagles signed him to a contract in July but he was unfortunately among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason. Cherry was later signed to their practice squad before being cut loose last week. The Eagles just recently brought him back.

During his four-year college career, Cherry recorded 258 tackles, 14 sacks, seven forced fumbles, two recoveries, one interception and seven pass defenses for the Wildcats.
