Philadelphia Eagles newly signed LB Shaq Leonard has arrived today. He was signed to a one-year deal yesterday.
Leonard will fill a need at LB. Nakobe Dean is on the IR with a foot injury. Zach Cunningham missed last week’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Both Nicholas Morrow and Christian Ellis struggled on Sunday. Cunningham could be back for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.
The 28 year-old Leonard was once a All-Pro, but has had back issues the last few years. He played nine games for the Indianapolis Colts this season before being released.
I don’t expect Leonard to regain his All-Pro play, but he is still a good player and is upgrade at a position of need.
Leonard should be ready to play on Sunday. How much playing time he gets will be determined by the coaches over the next few days.
