Next Mann Up
Braden Mann, Devon Allen to make their Eagle debuts
Two players are set to make their official Eagles debuts in Monday night’s Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The team officially elevated WR Devon Allen and Punter Braden Mann from the practice squad.
For the first time in his career, the 28-year-old Allen gets his chance to play in an NFL regular season game after spending the early part of his professional career as an Olympic hurdler. Allen has been on the team’s practice squad since 2022 and spent the last two preseasons looking to make the team’s 53.
With Quez Watkins out, the Eagles needed another receiver to back up A.J. Brown, an injured DeVonta Smith, Olamide Zaccheaus, and Britain Covey, who has played limited offensive snaps in his career.
Allen can also serve as a kick returner with Boston Scott also missing the game.
Mann becomes the new Eagles punter following the release of Arryn Siposs. The Eagles can use two more practice squad elevations before they will have to make the decision to sign him to the 53.
