The Eagles have made a slew of roster moves ahead of this week's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Signed Ben VanSumeren to the active roster

The Eagles have signed linebacker Ben VanSumeren to the active roster.

The undrafted free agent had been elevated from the practice squad for the last three games. Over that span, VanSumeren played 62 snaps, all on special teams.

The 23-year-old spent most of the season on the practice squad after leading the NFL with 26 tackles in the preseason.

With Nakobe Dean on Injured Reserve, the Michigan State alumnus will provide depth at the linebacker position.

Signed Josiah Scott to the practice squad

The Eagles have signed cornerback Josiah Scott to the practice squad.

Scott rejoins the team after being waived from the active roster on November 28.

The cornerback played four games this season. He was inactive last Sunday for the win over the Bills. Scott registered one solo tackle on 17 defensive snaps.

The former Jacksonville Jaguars' fourth-round draft pick played 29 games on the Eagles' active roster, making four starts in his first stint with the team. He registered 38 tackles, eight pass deflections, two interceptions, and one sack.

Signed Cam Sims to the practice squad

The Eagles have signed wide receiver Cam Sims to the practice squad.

Sims has played in 55 games (17 starts) all with the Washington Commanders. He has recorded 57 receptions for 804 yards and three touchdowns in his six-year career.

The undrafted free agent out of Alabama spent time on the practice squad with the Las Vegas Raiders and New York Giants this season.

Released Greg Ward from the practice squad

The Eagles have released wide receiver Greg Ward from the practice squad.

Ward has been with the organization since 2017, winning Super Bowl LII as a member of the practice squad.

In 40 career games (13 starts), the former college quarterback registered 88 receptions for 768 yards and 10 touchdowns. In 2020, Ward led the team in receptions (53) and receiving touchdowns (6).

Relive the four NFC Championship wins in Eagles history. From a dominating win over the 49ers last season to the first win in the 1980 season over the Cowboys, the Eagles have won some memorable title games, all at home.
