The Eagles are letting their special teams captain walk, as Kamu Grugier-Hill posted on his Instagram account to say goodbye to the organization and its fans.
He will be joining the Dolphins in Miami on a one-year deal.
Grugier-Hill initially joined the Eagles back in 2016 when he was claimed off of waivers from the New England Patriots. He started out primarily being used as a special teamer. He excelled so much on special teams, that he became the Eagles special teams captain for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
Over the course of his time in Philadelphia, he started showing more potential as a linebacker and was named a starter on defense for the first time in 2018. 2019 was an injury-filled year for him though, as he missed both the first three games (knee) and the final three games (back) of the season, including the playoff game.
In 54 games with the Eagles, KGH recorded 98 tackles (11 for loss), three QB hits, two passes defended, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one sack, and one interception.
Howie Roseman will now have to replace two starting linebackers this offseason, as the team already released Nigel Bradham a few weeks ago.
