NFL preseason football is among us, and it feels so good to have the pigskin back on our televisions.
It’s plays like the one Aaron Grymes made for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Pittsburgh Steelers that makes us so thirsty for that NFL action. Late in the second quarter of Thursday night’s bout, Landry Jones threw up a pass in the corner of the end zone, and Grymes made a spectacular grab to keep the Eagles’ shutout alive.
He went all “Say Hey Kid” on us:
Grymes came to the Eagles from the CFL, after playing college football at Idaho for three years before signing with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2013.
The Eagles are set with Byron Maxwell and Eric Rowe at corner, but if Grymes is able to reel in passes like that, he’s going to earn himself a spot on the roster. And at 25, who knows how far he can go.
