I think we know at least one person who performed well at rookie mincamp this weekend. The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Monday that they signed DB Wade Bonner to their 90-man roster. Bonner participated in the camp on a tryout basis.
As the team was already at the 90 person limit, Philadelphia released WR Darnell Williams in order to make room for Bonner.
Bonner (5-10, 195), played in 48 games at Mississippi State and in three seasons as a defensive back tallied 125 tackles and 2.5 sacks in three seasons as a defensive back, including a career-high 66 tackles as a senior in 2011. He started his college career on the offensive side of the ball, in 2008 spending his time as a reserve running back, receiver, and return man.
Wade Bonner joins two familiar faces on the Birds–Fletcher Cox and Jamar Chaney were former college teammates.
