Ward’s name is one that should be familiar to Eagles fans as he was signed as an undrafted free agent on May 11th of 2017. He fell victim to the numbers game as the Eagles were stacked at the position, leading to Philly’s decision to release him on September 2nd of that same year.
They’d sign him to the practice squad the next day before releasing him again on September 12th. He’d be re-signed to the practice squad shortly thereafter and actually earned a Super Bowl ring when Philly defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
The Eagles signed Ward to a future/reserve contract deal on February 7th, released on September 1st, and signed to the practice squad on September 2nd.
He’d be released by ‘The Birds’ for a final time on September 7th. We wouldn’t hear from him again until he signed with the San Antonio Commanders of the AAF. There, we were reminded why ‘Birds’ fans fell in love with him in the first place.
