Eagles sign local tight end to replace Jason Croom
The Eagles moved quickly on finding a replacement for Jason Croom. Earlier today, the Eagles announced that they would be signing tight end Cary Angeline after placing Croom on injured reserve. Jason suffered a torn patella tendon against the Patriots earlier this week.
Angeline visited Philly a few days ago after Tyree Jackson went down with a back injury that will sideline him for over two months. Cary Angeline, a Downingtown East graduate, played 35 games at N.C State in three seasons. Before his time at N.C state, he initially started his collegiate career at USC.
Angeline was an honorable mention All-ACC choice in his last season after catching 27 receptions for 529 yards and six touchdowns. Cary finished his N.C. State career with 61 receptions for 950 yards and 12 touchdowns. Most recently, he was with the Arizona Cardinals, who released him a few days ago.
