FOLLOWUP: WSHS alum Aaron Grymes joins Philadelphia Eagles’ roster as their Seattle game nears

(Family-provided photo, added November 14)

Back in August, we reported on a big night on the field for NFL player Aaron Grymes, a West Seattle High School alum who had signed with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the year. We also mentioned at the time that the Eagles were due here in Seattle to face the Seahawks on November 20th. With that game just nine days away, Grymes is getting a spot on the Eagles’ 53-man roster, according to this Philadelphia Magazine report shared with us by his aunt Kim Gearon. The cornerback might have gained that status sooner, the Eagles’ head coach told the magazine, but was waived after the injury he suffered in that August game, following his attention-getting play. But before the Eagles’ trip to Seattle, Grymes, 25, is on the roster in time for their game this Sunday against Atlanta. He told CSN Philly that whatever his first play turns out to be, “It’s going to be nervewracking.”

    I hope he gets to play here in Seattle in front of friends and family.

    Let’s hope he helps destroy the Seahawks because the Philadelphia Eagles are the greatest franchise in the history of sports.
