Worst nightmare: Eagles has finally completed the Signing  of super Bowl monster…..

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles formally added players from both Super Bowl rosters and made two roster adjustments.

In addition to bringing in former Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Darian Kinnard, the Eagles have signed running back Tyrion Davis-Price of the San Francisco 49ers to a contract. Davis-Price signed a reserve/future contract, and Kinnard probably signed a comparable one, despite the lack of an official report.

After a four-year career at Kentucky, Kinnard was selected by the Chiefs in the fifth round (at pick No. 145 overall) in 2022. Despite playing in just one game as a rookie, Kinnard won a Super Bowl. Before earning his second ring earlier this month, he was on the practice squad for the entirety of 2023 and spent the majority of the previous season on injured reserve.

Kinnard started 39 straight games during a 46-game career at Kentucky. He was a consensus First-Team All-American during his senior year.

Philly needs depth at tackle behind starters Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata, especially with Jack Driscoll possibly on the move in free agency. The Eagles will also likely be losing Jason Kelce to retirement this offseason, creating a major hole on the offensive line.

Though it doesn’t directly impact the center position, adding Kinnard to the fold could help provide depth for the unit as a whole if he makes the 53-man roster. Having him remain on the practice squad isn’t a bad alternative either.
