Eagles sign LB Simoni Lawrence, a local product
The Philadelphia Eagles picked up a local product today when they announced the signing of linebacker Simoni Lawrence.
The Upper Darby, Penn., native is an undrafted college free agent who was originally signed by the St. Louis Rams. Lawrence, who played in college at Minnesota, was released by the Rams May 25.
Lawrence made 151 tackles to go with six sacks and two interceptions in two seasons in the middle of the Golden Gophers defense. He was chosen as an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection this last season. He is a longshot to make the practice squad.
