PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Alex Henery's kickoffs frequently don't reach the end zone, making it imperative for the Philadelphia Eagles to improve their coverage.
David Wilson nearly broke loose for a touchdown a few times against the Eagles in Philadelphia's 19-17 win over the New York Giants last Sunday night. Wilson averaged 36.2 yards on six returns, including ones of 48, 45 and 53 yards.
That led the Eagles (3-1) to make some changes on special teams. Brian Rolle, a second-year linebacker who started several games last year, was released. He was replaced by linebacker Adrian Moten, who could see action against Pittsburgh (1-2) on Sunday.
``He's definitely a tough, young scrapper,'' special teams coordinator Bobby April said. ``He looks like one of those guys in Rocky III when Rocky comes in all Dapper Dan and the guys drop their gloves from punching the bag and they're stripped down, ready to rumble. He's kind of got that attitude.''
