The Eagles claimed Epps off waivers from the Vikings on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The move comes one day after the Vikings plucked Andrew Sendejo off waivers from the Eagles, so the two clubs essentially exchanged safeties. Epps, a rookie sixth-round pick, played predominantly in a special-teams role with the Vikings. However, Sendejo leaves behind a steady workload in Philly, so Epps has the opportunity to compete with Rudy Ford for opportunities on defense.
Epps was waived by Minnesota on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The Vikings needed to clear a roster spot after claiming Andrew Sendejo off waivers, and Epps wound up being the unlucky victim. Epps has played sparingly on special teams this season and was inactive last game. If he goes unclaimed, Minnesota may look to add the young safety to its practice squad.
