Eagles Sign S Jerome Couplin Off Lions’ Practice Squad


The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday that they have signed  S Jerome Couplin off of the Lions’ practice squad.

Couplin, 23, signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of William & Mary back in May. He was able to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was later placed on waivers and signed to their taxi squad in October.

The Bills wound up claiming him off of waivers last month, but he lasted just a few days in Buffalo before he ultimately returned to the Lions’ practice squad.

This season, Couplin has appeared in eight games and recorded two tackles.

Hope his resume justifies bringing him in. Yes, we need safety help, but he’s already come up short with the Lions and the Bills, by all accounts.
