Eagles Claim Murphy; Add More RFAs

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have agreed to terms with the following three rookie free agents:

RB Keithon Flemming (5-10, 208) West Texas A&M
DE Eric Moncur (6-1, 237) Miami, FL
CB Devin Ross (5-10, 183) Arizona

Despite being sidelined for the first six games of the 2009 season due to a dislocated elbow, Flemming, a Mesquite, TX native, scored a team-high 16 TDs and averaged 134 all-purpose yards per game. He earned LSC South co-offensive back of the year honors. Over his career, he accounted for 4,008 all-purpose yards, including 12 100-yard rushing performances. He concluded his career sixth on the West Texas A&M career rushing chart, fifth on the receptions list and is second on the career scoring charts.

Moncur registered 110 tackles and eleven sacks in his career at Miami, posting a career-high and ranking second on the team with six sacks in 2007. He attended Carol City High School in Miami, FL, where he racked up 34 sacks in his final two seasons and earned SuperPrep All-America honors.

Ross garnered All-Pac 10 Conference honorable mention accolades as a senior in 2009 after recording 74 tackles, one interception and 11 pass deflections. He was a second-team All-Pac 10 selection as a junior in 2008 after recording a career-high three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. Ross earned first-team all-league as a senior defensive back at Rancho Cucamonga HS in Ontario, CA.

In addition, the Eagles claimed G Shawn Murphy off waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 27-year-old Murphy was a 4th round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins in 2008. The 6-4, 315-pound lineman was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on October 21, 2009 after being released by Miami. Murphy, a native of Highland, Utah, was a two-year starter at Utah State. He is son of former Braves and Phillies All-Star outfielder Dale Murphy.
