When the Philadelphia Eagles find themselves in a pinch and are looking to add talent to their roster to fill holes, we have, at times, seen them turn to guys that they are already familiar with. It appears that's their plan again.

According to multiple sources, including Scott's representation, JL Sports, he has been signed by Philly off of the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad which means he is now on the Eagles active roster. He's expected to step in to fill the void vacated by Bradley Roby who is now week-to-week with an injury.

Here's JL Sports' announcement and an update from Jordan Schultz.

Expect Josiah Scott to step in to fill a void in the Eagle secondary immediately.

Glance at Philly's injury report, and you'll see starters and a who's who of young stars who were expected to step in and contribute immediately. That's particularly true in the secondary. Guys like Reed Blankenship and Darius Slay headline the walking wounded. There are also some young guys that they are excited about, guys like Eli Rcks. Newly acquired Bradley Roby is also injured.

At the time of this story's release, the Eagles haven't officially announced the move. They should do so once Scott puts the pen to the paper.

After spending the 2020 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he spent the 2021 and 2022 NFL seasons in Philly. He has appeared in 29 games as a Bird with four starts. He has collected 26 tackles, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions for his efforts.
