Momah among 3 Eagles sign to futures contracts
Share This Post

Towering wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah signed with the Eagles last offseason but didn’t make the team.

He’ll try again.

Momah, the 6-foot-7 former Boston College standout, signed a futures contract Tuesday with the Eagles, along with wide receiver Will Murphy and linebacker Josh Kaddu.

Murphy, who played for Chip Kelly at Oregon, and Momah were each released just before the roster cutdown date. Murphy was re-signed to the practice squad on Sept. 23 and spent the rest of the season there.

Kaddu, a  2012 fifth-round pick of the Dolphins with five games of NFL experience, also played for Kelly at Oregon. The Dolphins were intrigued by his potential last offseason but released him Oct. 21 and then re-signed him to the practice squad.

The Eagles touted Momah’s potential when they signed him on March 30, especially given his size and the 4.4 he ran in the 40-yard dash at his workout. But the wide receiver was also considered a raw talent who needed tutelage and grooming.

Momah didn’t play wide receiver full time at Boston College until his senior season. He caught eight passes for 157 yards in Boston College’s 24-17 loss to Northwestern in the 2011 season opener but tore his ACL in the game missed the rest of the season.

He spent 2012 out of football after the NCAA denied him another season of eligibility, rehabbing the knee and hoping some team would give him a shot the following season.

The Eagles signed him to a three-year deal, but Momah didn’t make enough progress at training camp to stick. He caught three passes for 42 yards in the preseason before being released.
