The weekend brought college football and upsets (congratulations to Deion Sanders and his Colorado Buffaloes). Monday brought us another Labor Day. Hopefully, you spent yours with your family and enjoyed some much-needed rest. The Philadelphia Eagles were busy. They were shuffling the roster. It appears what they say is correct. There are truly no days off in the NFL.

News comes from the NovaCare Complex. The Birds add two prospects to their practice squad roster. Two others were released in subsequent moves. We thought you'd be interested in reading about what happened.

Nicholas Morrow returns to the nest as the Philadelphia Eagles announce four roster moves on Labor Day.

Week 1's game is a Sunday afternoon affair in Foxborough as Philly will try its hand at ruining Tom Brady appreciation day. Truthfully, we're here for all of the smoke. The New England Patriots have ruined so many days for every other franchise, and as fate would have it, they even ruined a Super Bowl for our Eagles once.

Don't worry. That story had a happy ending. Revenge was sweet during another. Anyway, we digress. Let's talk about those roster moves.

Philly announced the addition of linebacker Nicholas Morrow and offensive lineman Tyre Phillips to the practice squad on Labor Day. Second-year linebacker Kyron Johnson and cornerback Taiwan Mullen were released in subsequent moves.

Johnson was a sixth-round pick by the Eagles in 2022. He appeared in 16 regular season games, playing primarily on Michael Clay's special teams unit. Mullen was a rookie and an undrafted free agent that spent the preseason with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Morrow's name is one that you are no doubt familiar with. He was added earlier in the offseason and was expected to compete for a starting role. Meanwhile, Tyre Phillips, a 2020 draftee, has spent time with the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants. He's a six-foot-five, 325-pound prospect that gives Philly more insurance along the offensive line. Jeff Stoutland gains another enrollee for Stoutland University.
