Ahead of the NFL trade deadline, the Eagles announced a deal with the Denver Broncos. The Eagles received defensive back Kary Vincent Jr. in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2022.
Vincent opted out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 5-10, 189-pound defensive back was a seventh-round (239th overall) pick out of LSU for the Broncos in the 2021 NFL Draft. Vincent was a part of the Tigers' 2019 championship team. During his three seasons at LSU, he recorded 87 tackles, six interceptions, and 16 pass breakups. In addition to football, Vincent was a standout in track and field as an All-American on LSU's 4x100 relay team.
Vincent earned a spot on the Broncos' active roster out of Training Camp, but has been inactive for all eight games in 2021.
A native of Houston, Vincent returned three interceptions for touchdowns in his senior year at Port Arthur Memorial High School. He was also a two-time state champion in the 200-meter dash.
The Eagles released guard/tackle Brett Toth to make room on the active roster. The team also announced its practice squad protections for Week 9: tackle Le'Raven Clark, wide receiver John Hightower, running back Jordan Howard, and safety Elijah Riley.
