The Washington Commanders have signed former CFL offensive lineman Julian Good-Jones off of the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice roster, adding him to their 53-man active roster.

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. He was placed on the practice roster for the first half of the season after being waived as part of the team’s final roster cuts.

Good-Jones made 22 starts over two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders (2021-22) primarily at right tackle. Calgary allowed 17 sacks in his final season 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.

Calgary owns the CFL rights to Good-Jones through February 2024, after which he would be free to sign with any other team.

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.

The Commanders (4-5) are scheduled to visit the Seattle Seahawks (5-3) on Sunday, November 12 at 4:25 p.m. EDT.
