The Eagles have made a huge move to the team after starting 2-0 to begin the season.
The team is signing former Jets and Steelers punter Braden Mann to their practice squad, veteran NFL reporter Adam Caplan reported on Monday morning.
In return, the team has released punter Arryn Siposs.
During the first two weeks of the 2023 season, the Eagles have elevated Siposs to play against the Patriots and Vikings. The NFL’s ruling states players can only be elevated from the practice squad three times in a season before the team is forced to either cut the player or sign them to the active roster.
Siposs has not had a good time in Philly after he was heavily ridiculed for his lack of efficiency last year.
Braden Mann was just recently cut from the Steelers during the offseason but he previously served as the punter for the New York Jets over the last three years of his career. During last season, Mann had a touchback rate of 9.6% last season while also landing 32.5% of his punts inside of his opponent’s 20-yard line.
The 25-year-old could provide so much-needed help on special teams for a team that wants to keep their mistakes to a minimum as they have a heavy contender in the Dallas Cowboys who will be fighting for the NFC East.
