Former MSU Linebacker Survives Final Cuts for Philadelphia Eagles
It's always great to see a former Bobcat making progress and achieving their dream.
406 MT Sports is reporting that former Montana State Bobcat stand out Alex Singleton has passed the final cuts and will be on the Philadelphia Eagles final 53 man roster.
Alex Singleton was a defensive standout for the Montana State Bobcats from 2011 through 2014 and has been working tirelessly to make it in the NFL and last year got his first taste with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was signed to a futures contract and eventually was promoted to the active roster and played in 10 games.
Making the team this year was especially difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic where the team held virtual meetings and hoped their players where working out and staying in shape.
There was also no preseason games this year which lets players, especially those who are trying to make the roster, show their skills and why should make the team.
Luckily, the Philadelphia Eagles are comfortable enough with Alex Singleton to know his skill set where they signed him to the active roster and will most likely make big contributions on special teams for the NFL team.

Making it into the NFL is one of the hardest for professional sports. Especially for kids who play at smaller schools like Montana State University. Luckily for Alex, all of his hard work is finally paying off and he will be on the roster for the whole year. We just want to wish him the best of luck and can't wait to see what he does this year.
