On the Monday following Saturday night's preseason game versus the Baltimore Ravens and ahead of the first of two Philadelphia Eagles joint practice sessions with the Cleveland Browns, the Birds have shuffled their roster.
Fourth-year linebacker and special teams mainstay Shaun Bradley heads to the team's injured reserve. He suffered a torn Achilles and had to be carted off the field of play. He later issued a heartfelt temporary farewell to his squad and the fans before he attacks his rehab.
To fill the open roster spot, the Philadelphia Eagles also announced the signing of a young defensive tackle Olive Sagapolu. Check out the official tweet on X.
Wait! Are these still called tweets?
Here is a brief introduction to new Eagles defensive tackle Olive Sagapolu.
Those of you who are now fans of spring football may already be aware of Olive Sagapolu's skill set. He joins the Philadelphia Eagles by way of the USFL's Pittsburgh Maulers.

A 24th-round selection during the most recent USFL Draft, he stands at six-foot-two and tips the scales at 346 pounds. The former Wisconsin Badger previously cut his teeth with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2019 but was waived during final roster cuts.
He then signed with the Detroit Lions practice three and 1/2 months later on December 17th of 2019. He signed a reserve/future contract on December 30th before being waived, re-signed, and waived again. He also spent time with the Atlanta Falcons at their 2021 training camp.
He appeared in 38 games as a member of the Badgers from 2015 to 2018. He stacked 61 tackles and six sacks.
