The Eagles signed wide receiver B.J. Cunningham on Monday and released tight end Emil Igwenagu.

Cunningham spent the offseason with the Eagles before he was waived/injured on Aug. 1 with a foot injury. The Eagles wanted another wide receiver on the roster, and Cunningham is a former sixth-round pick who spent most of last season the practice squad.

Igwenagu beat Clay Harbor for a roster spot, but he has not yet been active. He remained inactive on Sunday even though James Casey was out.

Who’s the best quarterback?

  • 556 (39.7%)
  • 668 (47.6%)
  • 178 (12.7%)
  • 1402

Igwenagu still has practice squad eligibility, so the Eagles can bring him back if he clears waivers. The team has two wide receivers on the practice squad: Greg Salas and Will Murphy.
