Howie Roseman shed some light on the decision to cut Chas Henry and sign veteran punter Mat McBriar.
The Eagles general manager revealed that they brought McBriar in Tuesday for a workout and noticed notable improvement in his kicks from the preseason. The 33-year-old McBriar is coming off an injury to his non-kicking foot.
“We did see a difference,” Roseman told the team’s website. “He seems healthier and he’s booming the ball now.”
Looking ahead to the matchup against the Cardinals, special teams very well could determine the difference between a win and a loss.
Let’s start with the punter. A week after making the Eagles look smart for choosing him over Mat McBriar, second-year player Chas Henry had major issues against the Ravens.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., and the game will be broadcast locally on 6-ABC.
