Eagles Sign Undrafted Linebacker Kyle Wilson

After releasing veteran Mychal Kendricks and losing Paul Worrilow for the season, the Eagles have added linebacker depth in rookie Kyle Wilson.

Wilson, who stands 6-foot, 230 pounds, participated in the Eagles' rookie camp earlier this month.

"I feel like my game can translate pretty well to the NFL," Wilson told the Wichita Eagle Beacon, his hometown newspaper.

"I can make plays at linebacker and on special teams. I have a good football IQ and called all the plays for my defense at Arkansas State. I just want to keep proving people wrong."

Wilson was unrecruited out of Wichita South High School and began his collegiate career at football powerhouse Hutchinson Community College in Kansas before transferring to Arkansas State, where he played for two years.

"I have never been a huge name," Wilson said. "Didn't have any scholarship offers coming out of high school and was forced to go to junior college. Only had three offers leaving there. I have always played with a chip on my shoulder."

The Eagles now have nine linebackers on the roster, including Wilson, projected starters Nigel Bradham and Jordan Hicks, veterans Corey Nelson, Kamu Grugier-Hill and LaRoy Reynolds, late-round draft picks Nate Gerry and Joe Walker and undrafted rookie Asantay Brown from Western Michigan.
