Josh Jobe is officially a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.

As a University of Alabama alum, the former Crimson Tide cornerback signed his undrafted free agent contract.

Jobe did not get selected through seven rounds of the NFL Draft, but the Eagles made him a part of its roster. The news happened on Friday as Jobe is one of 12 free agent signees. He now looks to make the Eagles’ 53-man roster in any way he can.

Jobe came to the Crimson Tide in its 2018 recruiting class as a four-star. He posted a successful season in 2020, but a foot injury and mental mistakes plagued him in 2021. Jobe missed three games with a turf toe and had problems with defensive holding and pass interference calls. The 5-foot-11, 182-pounder recorded 38 tackles, four pass breakups, and two interceptions last year.

He possesses the physical build to be a good corner in the NFL, but Jobe has to clean up his technique.
