Cardinals TE Ifeanyi Momah has a torn meniscus and needs surgery.

It's believed he suffered the injury in Arizona's preseason finale, or in a practice after that. Momah is a tree at 6-foot-7, and shined in August with six preseason receptions for 92 yards. There are unconfirmed rumors the Cardinals will sign free agent Joseph Fauria to take Momah's roster spot.

Cardinals TE Ifeanyi Momah has packed on 25 pounds since January.

Momah entered the league as an intriguing 6-foot-7, 230-pound receiver with the Eagles, but wasn't cutting it at the position. He finally gave in and agreed to switch to tight end. Now 255, Momah has "really impressed" coach Bruce Arians at minicamp. With John Carlson retired, Momah has a chance to make the team.

Cardinals signed TE Ifeanyi Momah to a one-year contract.

Momah is the third-known Veteran Combine participant to land a contract. The 6-foot-7 receiver-tight end hybrid has bounced around the league since being part of the Eagles' final cuts last summer. All he really offers is size.

Browns signed WR Ifeanyi Momah to the practice squad.

Momah (6-foot-7, 239) saw a ton of first-team reps with the Eagles during training camp and preseason, but lost out to special teamer Jeff Maehl for a roster spot. The Eagles loved Momah's size, but he didn't do much with his snaps with the starters. He's essentially the No. 8 receiver in Cleveland.

Eagles waived WR Ifeanyi Momah.

It's only a surprise because Momah got first-team snaps in preseason games. He didn't do much with them, however, and has practice squad eligibility.

Eagles WR Ifeanyi Momah lost two fumbles in Friday night's preseason game against the Patriots.

It was a disastrous game from Momah, who drew the start with Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper sidelined. He had three catches for 28 yards on four targets. Momah also dropped a pass directly into the hands of Arrelious Benn for a touchdown, who is his direct competition for a roster spot. Momah will need to bounce back in the third preseason game to have any chance of winning the Eagles' No. 5 receiver job.

Eagles WR Ifeanyi Momah started the team's preseason opener against the Bears.

With Riley Cooper sidelined, Momah has been getting "a ton" of first-team reps at training camp, and earned the start Friday night. He caught two of his three targets for 15 yards. Momah will be relegated to second-team duties once Cooper returns, but his spot on the roster seems secure.

Eagles WR Ifeanyi Momah has been getting "a ton" of first-team reps over the last week at training camp.

It's primarily been because Riley Cooper (foot) is banged up, but still notable for Momah's roster chances. A name to keep in mind, Momah stands in at a Carmichaelian 6-foot-7, 229. Chip Kelly is trying to get bigger at wide receiver.
Mon, Aug 4, 2014 05:41:00 PM

Eagles signed WR Ifeanyi Momah, WR Will Murphy, and LB Josh Kaddu to reserve/future contracts.

Momah (6-foot-7, 238) spent last spring and summer with the Eagles. He's back for another round. Kaddu previously spent time with the Dolphins.

Eagles signed WR Ifeanyi Momah to a three-year contract.

Momah is a tall drink of water at 6-foot-7 and 229 pounds. He played his college ball at Boston College, and caught 39 passes for 629 yards and six touchdowns in his career. A roster long shot, Momah also played some defensive end at BC.
