Eagles elevate DB Grayland Arnold, WR Deontay Burnett to the active roster

The Eagles once again took advantage of the new roster rules Saturday when they promoted defensive back Grayland Arnold and wide receiver Deontay Burnett from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Arnold will be making his NFL debut Sunday after joined the Eagles this past offseason as an undrafted free agent out of Baylor. During his final season at Baylor, Arnold earned second-team All-American (Sports Illustrated) and second-team All-Big 12 honors.

Burnett will be playing in his third game in an Eagles uniform after being active for Week 17 and the Wild Card Round in 2019. During the Week 17 game, he caught a big 41-yard pass from quarterback Carson Wentz that helped the Eagles secure a 34-17 win over the Giants and the NFC East title.
