It’s always fun to watch former Michigan State football stars get chances in the NFL.
We’ve seen guys like Kenneth Walker III, Bryce Baringer, and Jayden Reed star in recent years and other guys get opportunities like Connor Heyward and Joe Bachie.
Another former Spartan star who has flown under the radar in recent years has found a new NFL home this week as the Philadelphia Eagles signed him.
Josiah Scott reportedly signed with the Eagles on Tuesday.
Scott was a former Freshman All-American at Michigan State and had a nice career in East Lansing before getting selected in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played a year in Jacksonville before going to the Eagles in 2021-22 and he’s been with the Steelers this year before getting a second stint with the Eagles.
A chance at redemption for the former Michigan State football star
Eagles fans didn’t seem thrilled with the news of Scott’s signing on social media because he wasn’t on top of his game when he played there in the last couple of years, but this could be a chance for him to redeem himself.
Scott played in 29 career games with the Eagles, recording 28 total tackles, a sack, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions. He has the potential to be solid but has to prove himself again.
This wouldn’t be the first time he faced adversity as he was a lower-rated three-star recruit out of high school and was able to prove people wrong and become a star at Michigan State and an All-Big Ten talent before getting drafted into the NFL.
Time to prove people wrong again.
