Better than nothing. Pretty obvious though that the front office was trying to get some help at CB. This is apparently the best they could muster.

What do we have to lose?

Not like our secondary can get any worse. Who are we dropping to add him?

Hughes will go on IR. Apparently he suffered a season ending hamstring injury against the Chargers. I'm not making this up.

As i posted in the general news thread, Hughes is going on the short-term IR and will later become a free-agent, he's basically been cut.

Then he will probably be cut.

"Although it was initially announced that the Eagles had used the short-term IR designation on Hughes, that was not correct. Short-term IR allows a team to bring back one player per year after six weeks. Hughes is on an injured reserve list that does not allow him to play again for the Eagles this year, and when hes cleared -- presumably in the next few days -- hes expected to be released. Because Hughes is a vested veteran, he cannot be waived/injured immediately."

Hughes has been abused and battered this season Laughing

I read that the short-term IR designation for Hughes was misreported and that he was actually placed on the season ending IR. Either way, he's going to be released within the next few days.

What a travesty, you'd expect precise reporting of the facts with a high caliber player such as Hughes.

I'm just going to assume he is a combination of Rock Cartwright former Redskins FB/RB and Harold Carmichael former Eagles WR making him a GOAT combination in the defensive backfield.

Not like a lot of talent out there. At least we get a new face.
