Eagles Release Will Parks
James Palmer of NFL Network has reported that the Philadelphia Eagles have released Safety Will Parks.
The Eagles signed Parks this offseason on a very good short term deal. In four years with the Broncos, Parks had 134 tackles, four interceptions, 13 pass deflections, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. Parks is a Philly native and decided to come back home on a cheaper deal than go elsewhere. He signed a one year 1.6 million dollar deal with the Eagles and became a fan favorite right off the bat. He was very active with fans on Twitter and you could just tell that he loved the game of football.
Right before the season started on September 6th, Parks went down with a hamstring injury, and made his debut against the Baltimore Ravens. Since his debut, he has struggled to see the field and no one really knows why. The Eagles reportedly were shopping the safety back at the NFL trade deadline.
The Eagles might not have needed to sign Parks in the first place if they would’ve drafted Jeremy Chinn in the second round instead of Jalen Hurts. Chinn scored two touchdowns on back to back plays his past Sunday for the Panthers. A bad offseason for Howie Roseman continues.
