Roster Move: Eagles Sign CB D.J. Killings To The Practice Squad


The Eagles signed rookie cornerback D.J. Killings to the practice squad.

Killings was signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent back in May. The 5-10, 187-pound native of Jacksonville, Florida attended Central Florida and started all 13 games as a senior hauling in three interceptions including a pick-six. In his 36 games as a Golden Knight, Killings made 99 tackles, eight for a loss, five interceptions, 22 passes defended, a sack, and one forced a fumble.

The football bloodline runs true for Killings. His father Fred Killings Sr. was a Hall of Fame running back at Howard University. Killings played in all four of the Patriots' preseason games and registered six tackles with two passes defended. The 22-year-old was injured in mid-September and reached a settlement with the Patriots allowing him to become a free agent.
