Eagles Claim Two Players on Sunday

The Philadelphia Eagles claimed two players off waivers on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have claimed S/KR J.R. Reed off waivers from the New York Giants and LB Pago Togafau off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals.

The team released LB Akeem Jordan and S Marcus Paschal to make room on the roster for the pair.

Reed was originally a fourth-round draft choice of the Eagles in 2004, averaging 23.1 yards on kickoff returns during his rookie year. But a freak accident during the 2005 offseason left him with nerve damage in his lower leg and foot that forced him to miss the entire 2005 campaign.

He returned to the Eagles in 2006 but was released during the team's final cuts. He's been with the Rams, Falcons and Giants since then. New York waived him on Saturday in their final cuts.

Togafau was signed by the Cardinals as a rookie free agent following the 2007 draft out of Idaho State. The 5-10, 250-pound linebacker led the team in tackles during each of his last three seasons at Idaho State and finished his collegiate career with 361 stops. He made sixteen tackles during the preseason with the Cardinals.

Correction: Scout.com published a report for a short time on Saturday indicating that Ian Scott's contract had been terminated and that Nick Graham had been cut. Those reports were not correct. We apologize for the error.
