Eagles Roll Dice With ‘Problem Child’ Punter Wing

Two punters were selected in the fifth round of last month’s draft. Brad Wing was not one of them.

Eagles Release Mat McBriar, Sign P Donnie Jones

The Eagles signed punter Donnie Jones to a one-year contract Monday and released Mat McBriar.

Jones, formerly of the Texans, is a two-time All-Pro selection.

“Donnie Jones is a guy that we have admired over the last several years,” said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. “He has one of the strongest legs in the entire NFL and we’re excited we had a chance to sign him. We watched a lot of tape on him and he’s coming off a very good season with Houston. We feel he’ll add a good element to our special teams units.”
