In light of DJax being released, they signed this massive 6'7" WR to a futures contract after the season ended.

He was on the Eagles roster during last preseason, but I think he still needed some more time to polish up his game coming off a college knee injury (torn ACL).  He reportedly ran a 4.39 40-yard dash for the Eagles coaches at a private workout after he went undrafted, which led to them signing him last season.

I believe former Eagles legendary WR Harold Carmichael is still mentoring Ifeanyi Momah.  Harold Carmichael was a 6'8" converted basketball player who was named to the NFL's 1970's All-Decade Team after amassing 590 receptions for 8,985 receiving yards and 79 TDs [18th most career TD receptions in NFL history], and who also set a record at the time by catching a pass in 127 consecutive games.

If you're looking for a real sleeper to slide in at the end of your roster, this guy probably has the most potential, especially with DJax now gone and Jeremy Maclin still needing to prove to everyone that he's over the ACL tear he suffered on July 27, 2013.

Momah suffered his ACL tear during his 2011 college season opening game.  He put up 8 catches for 157 receiving yards that game before going down with the injury.  He lost his appeal for a sixth college season (redshirted his junior year), which forced him to enter the 2012 NFL Draft.  He went undrafted and spent 2012 rehabbing his torn ACL, not rushing his recovery.  During the 2013 offseason, he met with the Eagles for a private workout and chose them over the Saints, Steelers, and Browns.

Ok Robrain, you can't just smack the keyboard, type 2014 next to it and call it a sleeper.

I wouldn't have guessed his parents' names: Nathan and Gloria

Dude's best college season saw him catch 19 passes in 13 games. How does this guy have "potential"?

Didn't Robrain spend a good chunk of the 2013 offseason repping this guy? I had him on my radar until the team demoted him to the practice squad...All-in-all, I'd say there are far worse places to hedge bets...

Main reason he's back on my radar is because of the DJax shenanigans.  DJax instantly gone, Maclin not necessarily 100%, Riley Cooper sucks without DJax or Maclin drawing bracket coverage...this guy is 6'7", if he starts making plays during preseason, the fantasy world is going to notice quick.  I'd be getting him on the end of my bench in dynasty leagues if you're allowed to make offseason moves.

Threads like this are why I'm even on this forum. I'm not in a dynasty league, but I love hearing about guys that could potentially be had in rounds 10-16 that nobody else would think to draft. Sure a lot of them end up being duds, but you're no worse off than had you drafted a bunch of handcuffs or committe/lotto tickets.

Some updates now that we're further along with the summer schedules...

Chip Kelly seems to still believe in his potential:

Beat reporters have been talking positively about his chances of making the 53-man roster this offseason:

Just go backwards through the news articles and see for yourself.  He's been standing out this offseason.

Who is he going to play over?  Not starting over any of Maclin, Cooper, or Mathews.  Isn't going to ahead of Ertz or even Celek.   Maybe becomes a solid red zone option but I don't see him all of a sudden becoming the next T.O.
