2) Ifeanyi Momah, Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver

Ifeanyi Momah did not succeed in making the Philadelphia Eagles roster during Training Camp 2013, but the former Boston College wideout and fan darling satisfies an itch Eagles fans worldwide have had since 2004, most recently scratched by Riley Cooper this past season – a tall, physical, red zone threat receiver. Momah (who is a massive 6’7) is the tallest Eagles wide receiver since team great Harold Carmichael, who last played for Philadelphia in 1983. After running a 4.4 second forty yard dash, Momah failed to show that speed in practices as well as a lack of trust in his own intangibles (I distinctly remember former Eagles cornerback Jordan Poyer giving him trouble in one on one drills). The Eagles brought Momah back on a futures contract, which allows him the opportunity to compete for a roster spot next season. With uncertainty surrounding the contract status of Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, the nagging health issues of Arrelious Benn, and the likely cut of current Eagles receiver Damaris Johnson, the door is wide open for Momah to show what made him so appealing to Head Coach Chip Kelly to begin with.
