The Eagles gave practice squad cornerback D.J. Killings a pay raise, according to ESPN.com’s Field Yates (on Twitter). He’ll now earn a weekly rate that is equivalent to the league minimum paycheck. Bumping Killings up to a $27,353/week rate is probably an indication that another team tried to sign him away. It’s not a huge surprise given that he was one of the most talked about undrafted free agents in the 2017 class. Killings bounced back from an injury-riddled 2015 season to start in all 13 games for UCF last season and had 42 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one sack, and 11 pass break-ups. After he ran a 4.48 40-yard-dash and posted a 37.5 inch vertical jump at his Pro Day, teams started showing real interest. Although he was passed on 250+ times in the draft, several teams tried to sign him in the spring.
