Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah is showing the coaches the second time’s a charm. He made it all the way through training camp last year only to be cut on August 30th, the final cut. He doesn’t want to go through that again, watching football played on a TV instead of on the sidelines of the Linc. This January the Eagles signed him for a future contract to give him a second chance.
I was expecting to come back [to the Eagles] earlier, and the fact that I didn’t get picked up until after the season makes the fire burn even stronger. I’m going to give it my all and I’m going to make a team this year. Hopefully it’s with the Eagles.
He’s gotten the attention Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur also. Thursday, he made a twisting, opposite shoulder, underthrown pass by quarterback Matt Barkley. And to make it even more impressive he did this against cornerback Brandon Boykin, the Eagles interception leader last season.
Shurmur: Momah has made huge amount of improvement from a year ago … Night and day how much of a better player he is.
