Report: Eagles Claim CB I. Trufant

According to Adam Caplan of, the Eagles have claimed cornerback Isaiah Trufant off waiver from the New York Jets. Trufant, 28, was promoted to the Jets active roster from the team's practice squad in Week 17 of the regular season, but was waived during the Jets' playoff run, exposing him to the waiver process.

The Eagles, according to Caplan, were the only team to place a claim on Trufant, who is the younger brother of Marcus Trufant, a cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks.

Trufant went undrafted in 2006 after playing collegiately at Eastern Washington. Prior to joining the Jets practice squad in December, Trufant plied his trade with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League, where he notched four interceptions and was named the UFL's defensive player of the year.
