Eagles Claim Cornerback Off Waivers

The Philadelphia Eagles have claimed Jimmy Moreland off waivers from the Houston Texans. 

Moreland will provide the Eagles with another NFL-caliber cornerback at their disposal. He has made appearances over each of the last three seasons between Washington and Houston. In 37 career games between the two teams, he has 88 combined tackles to go along with 0.5 sacks. 

With Houston, Moreland was primarily a backup player, and that will likely be the case with the Eagles, too. However, even with this being so, a team can never have too much depth at the end of the day.
