The Eagles signed Clementon’s Corey Clement as an undrafted free agent running back after a fine career at Wisconsin, and now he is in the mix to make the final 53:
“Everybody’s competing with one another,” Clement told NJ.com following yesterday’s practice. “At the same time, I’ve got to compete with myself. That’s all about getting better … Whether it’s in the film room, or out on the field. Duce [Staley] says ‘don’t get caught up with all the depth in the running back room, just try to worry about yourself, if you can out-beat yourself every day, that means you’re getting better and your chances of making this team are high.”
“I’ve been catching passes all my life,” Clement said. “But, once I got to Wisconsin, our scheme was basically run first, pass second. Now that I’m here, I’ve got the hands, all they have to do is throw it to me.
“I want to do that every day possible. Every day that I have a chance to do that, I want to make sure I catch it, secure it, and make sure they know that I’m a valuable guy to look at out there on the perimeter.”
