The Eagles acted quickly to sign the freshly cut Jose Cortez. Philadelphia released K Todd France to accomodate Cortez on its roster.
The Eagles claim that Cortez was valued for his kickoffs and that he would likely be retained after the team's injured Pro Bowler David Akers returns from a hamstring injury. Akers could focus on field goals alone, speeding his healing process, or so the theory goes.
Dallas plays the Eagles three weeks from yesterday. Imagine your own scenarios.
