Eagles sign TE Jason Croom off the practice squad; release G Jamon Brown

The Eagles released guard Jamon Brown and signed tight end Jason Croom off the practice squad on Friday.

Brown started in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. In his Friday morning video teleconference, Head Coach Doug Pederson did not say what the plan is along the offensive line for Thursday night's game against the Giants and now we know why.

With Brown out of the picture, the Eagles will start their sixth different offensive line combination in seven games this year.

Who will start at right guard? Remember, Matt Pryor is still on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and Isaac Seumalo is on Injured Reserve. Nate Herbig has started every game this season at one of the two guard spots. Sua Opeta is the primary backup at both guard positions. Rookie free agent Luke Juriga is the backup at center. Rookie tackle Prince Tega Wanogho could be called up from the practice squad for the game. The Eagles have until Thursday at 4 PM to make that decision.

Croom was called up from the practice squad for the Ravens game on Sunday and caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Carson Wentz in the fourth quarter. Croom's presence is even more important as Zach Ertz is out with an ankle injury and Dallas Goedert is still on Injured Reserve. Richard Rodgers is in line to be the starter. Hakeem Butler is also in the mix at tight end.
