Following the trimming of rosters to 53 players on Saturday, NFL teams are putting the finishing touches on their rosters ahead of Week 1 by scooping up players cut by other teams and making additions to their practice squads.
Among the moves made Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles added quarterback Kyle Lauletta to the practice squad after he was cut by the rival New York Giants. While practice squad moves don't typically warrant a ton of attention, the addition of Lauletta is noteworthy because he is a local product.
Lauletta is from Exton, PA and played his high school ball at Downingtown East before attending college at Richmond. NBC Philadelphia's John Clark also found a Tweet from Lauletta that will help to endear him to Eagles fans.
Lauletta has struggled in limited opportunities at the NFL level, failing to complete a pass in five attempts while tossing an interception across two appearances. At Richmond, he completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 10,465 yards, 73 touchdowns and 35 interceptions.
It's unlikely we'll ever see Lauletta under center in an Eagles uniform, but it's always nice to see local kids get an opportunity. It never hurts when they have a history of hating on the Cowboys, either.
