In a rare Friday afternoon roster move, the Eagles promoted safety Jamar Adams from the practice squad and released safety Jamar Wall.
Blessed with good size for a safety, the 6-2, 215-pound Adams is in his third NFL season after originally joining the NFL as a rookie free agent signing of the Seattle Seahawks in 2008. Adams played in seven career games - six of them last season – with Seattle and recorded four special teams tackles. Released by the Seahawks prior to the start of the 2010 season, Adams was briefly on the Eagles practice squad earlier this season for a one-week stint but was released on Sept. 30. Adams was re-signed to the practice squad on Dec. 21.
Wall had spent most of the 2010 season on the Eagles practice squad before being promoted to the active roster on Dec. 21. Wall was originally drafted earlier this year by the Cowboys in the sixth round. Ironically, the Eagles play the Cowboys on Sunday. Wall was signed by the Houston Texans after being released by Dallas and played in one game for them this season. Wall was active and played for the Eagles against the Vikings on Tuesday night.
