Upshaw is a versatile defensive linemen who most recently has played defensive tackle. With Jernigan out for the immediate future, Upshaw could add a lot of value to the Eagles as well as depth later in the year.
It’s a smart and cheap signing for the Eagles, he’s a player much like Torrey Smith last season who adds that veteran leadership and experience when it matters the most.
