The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced some roster moves on Tuesday evening.

First Youth Sidney Jones Jersey , the team signed free agent cornerback Dexter McDougle. The Eagles originally traded Terrence Brooks to the Jets in exchange for McDougle prior to the final preseason game last summer. McDougle served as a backup slot corner and special teams contributor prior to being cut in order to make room for Dannell Ellerbe in November. The Eagles are in need of depth at nickel cornerback with Sidney Jones suffering a hamstring injury that Doug Pederson described as “week-to-week.” McDougle’s familiarity with the Eagles’ defensive scheme could allow him to fill in there, which could then let Avonte Maddox stay back at safety. (Read more about McDougle here.)In order to make room for McDougle, the Eagles waived/injured defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao. The 2016 undrafted free agent signing has largely been ineffective for Philly, but now the Eagles are even thinner on the interior defensive line. Fletcher Cox, Haloti Ngata, and Trevon Hester are the only three defensive tackles on the 53-man roster and Ngata has missed the last two games due to injury. Of course Youth Cameron Johnston Jersey , Philadelphia can also use Michael Bennett and Brandon Graham to play inside. In order to add more DT depth, the Eagles signed Winston Craig to the practice squad. Craig has bounced on and off the team’s roster since originally signing as an undrafted free agent in 2017. Linebacker Kyle Wilson was waived to make room for Craig. The Eagles didn’t need Wilson after adding linebacker B.J. Bello to the scout team earlier on Tuesday.Here’s an updated look at the Eagles’ practice squadBig GrinT Winston CraigLB B.J. BelloDT Bruce HectorOL Josh AndrewsTE Billy BrownLB Asantay BrownWR Braxton MillerWR Dorren MillerDE Joe OstmanCB Chandon Sullivan Feeling the need to upgrade their supporting cast around Carson Wentz, the Philadelphia Eagles traded a 2019 third-round pick to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Golden Tate on Tuesday.In order to better get to know the Eagles’ new wide receiver, I thought it’d benefit BGN readers to get a Detroit Lions perspective on Tate. In order to do that, I reached out to Mansur Shaheen (@MansurShaheen) from Pride Of Detroit. Here’s what he had to say.1 - Can you sum up Tate’s career with Detroit?He will probably go down as one of the better receivers in Detroit Lions history. Outside of Stafford, he was the most important player on our offense post-Megatron. In only 4 years and some change he became our 7th all-time leading receiver. He was also the crux of our entire offenses short passing game. It would not be a stretch to say that he is one of the top 15 Lions of all time.2 - Over at Pride of Detroit Youth Fletcher Cox Jersey , I noticed it was said the “Lions done messed up” with this trade. How are fans reacting to this trade?Badly. The move makes sense, sending a player on a contract year away for a future asset, especially if you believe the Lions are not going anywhere this season. It still hurts to see a player that was so integral to everything this team did just suddenly be gone. He was also the best personality on the team, and his absence makes the Lions a little less fun to watch.3 - What are Tate’s strengths?Tate is basically everything you want out of a slot receiver. He can catch short passes and torch defences for long gains. He is a crisp route runner with great footwork, which allows him to get the better of even the best coverage. His body control, especially near the sideline Womens Brandon Graham Jersey , is s great as well and he always seems to get both feet inbounds. Tate is zone buster who is great at finding open space in defences. Basically imagine Nelson Agholor playing at his full potential, and then some.4 - What are Tate’s weaknesses?Nothing really stands out. He drops the occasional pass. Tate is not very physically imposing but he seems to fare well anyways for the most part. Sometimes he and Matthew Stafford were not on the same page but it is hard to tell whether that is a Tate issue or a Stafford issue.5 - The Eagles already have some receivers who primarily excel in the slot. To what extent can Tate be effective on the outside? His combination of speed, route running and football IQ make him a threat anywhere. In 2016 the Lions had Anquan Boldin in the slot for the most part and Tate played out wide a lot more. He was a great option that could stretch the field and take the top off of defenses to create room for the other receivers underneath. With Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay in the picture, he has done less of that this season but his skill should still translate to the outside.6 - Anything to know about Tate off the field? He seems to have a swagger that I think Eagles fans will enjoy.Tate is an absolute joy. His twitter account is amazing as he has no fear of snapping back at reporters. He also has the “Golden Tate Future Foundation” where he works to better the lives of veterans once they leave active duty. He is overall a really good dude both on and off the field.More from the Pride of Detroit perspective:Golden Tate traded to Eagles for 3rd-round pickLions players react to shocking Golden Tate tradeQuick thoughts on the Golden Tate trade: The Lions done messed upTop 5 moments of Golden Tate’s time with the Detroit LionsMore from the Bleeding Green Nation perspective:Golden Tate Trade: Eagles acquire Lions wide receiver in exchange for draft pickGolden Tate trade reactions: Eagles have a new YAC weaponEagles players welcome Golden Tate to Philadelphia
