NFL training camps are well underway, and there are loads of updates on former Boston College Eagles who are trying to further their careers in the pros. In case you missed it, NJ.com talked about Chris Pantale’s road to a roster spot. Definitely worth another look
Let’s review some updates on other Eagles in the NFL:
Brian Mihalik: Originally signed on with the Philadelphia Eagles as a defensive end, he is currently in the midst of a position change, playing offensive line for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Given his immense height, this actually makes a lot of sense. Defensive ends that size usually struggle in the NFL, but offensive linemen can find a niche.
Tyler Murphy: The former Boston College/University of Florida quarterback switched to wide receiver in 2015 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and saw some game action before being released. He caught on again with the Miami Dolphins this offseason, but was released again at the start of training camp.
Shakim Phillips: Speaking of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Phillips was battling for a spot on the roster this summer, but according to a report, he may be out of a job. Phillips was reportedly waived by the Steelers today.
Kaleb Ramsey: It looks like it may be the end of the road for the former Boston College defensive tackle. The oft-injured Ramsey, was just released by San Francisco 49ers this past week. Given his injury history, and difficulty getting on the field, the odds may be stacked against his return to the NFL
Connor Wujciak: The undrafted free agent, started training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles, but underwent shoulder surgery recently and was waived.
Ifeanyi Momah: Looks to be doing well as a tight end for the Arizona Cardinals, if he continues his strong play, he could make the roster this season.
