The Philadelphia Eagles have waived offensive lineman Julian Good-Jones.

The six-foot-five, 319-pound blocker signed with the Eagles this past off-season after previously attending training camp with the team in 2020. Though he played offensive tackle in the CFL, he was moved to the interior of the line in Philadelphia as a guard.

Good-Jones made 22 starts over two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders (2021-22) primarily at right tackle. Calgary allowed 17 sacks last year while helping produce an average of 6.4 yards per carry and 135.3 rushing yards per game, all of which ranked first in the CFL by a wide margin.

In college, Good-Jones played and started 49 games over four seasons at Iowa State. He was an honourable mention All-Big 12 selection in 2017 and 2018 and was named first-team All-Big 12 in 2019.

As a senior, he helped pave the way for an Iowa State offence that broke school records for total offence, touchdowns, passing yards, and yards per play. The Cyclones also conceded just 16 sacks, the fewest in the conference that year.

Calgary owns the rights to Good-Jones through February 2024, meaning that he will have to return to the team if he chooses to play in the CFL this season. If he comes back to the CFL after free agency gets underway this off-season, he will be free to sign with any team.
