The Philadelphia Eagles love getting players with ties to the University of Alabama.

Philadelphia has Jalen Hurts, Landon Dickerson, Tyler Steen, DeVonta Smith, Julio Jones, Josh Jobe, and Eli Ricks.

The Eagles picked up a third former Alabama wide receiver, Cameron Sims.

According to Elite Loyalty Sports, Sims signed a contract on Thursday with the Eagles. He went undrafted in 2018 and spent five seasons (2018-22) with the Washington Redskins/Football Team/Commanders. Sims was on two practice squads this season — Raiders and Giants — before getting an opportunity with the Eagles. A Louisiana native, Sims came to the University of Alabama as a four-star in the 2014 class. Injuries prevented him from becoming a star, but Sims earned two College Football Playoff National Championships rings in 2015 and 2017. He was also on three Southeastern Conference title teams (2014-16).

Hopefully, Sims will see his career take off in Philadelphia.
