WR Momah looks to exploit size advantage

Ifeanyi Momah was among the final cuts last year.

This time around, he has different plans in mind.

"You go from having a lot of attention and doing well to not playing so well and you get cut," the 6-foot-7 Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver told CSNPhilly.com. "Everybody forgets who you are, so it humbles you real quick."

Momah reflected on what transpired last year.

"The one thing I remember is being so tired -- getting acclimated to this pace, not only just the NFL level, but this offense," Momah told CSNPhilly.com.

And now?

"I feel like I'm more comfortable going in and out of the routes and just overall receiving," Momah told CSNPhilly.com. “There’s a big difference from last year. I’m ready."

Momah is competing against the likes of Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, rookies Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff along with Brad Smith and Arrelious Benn, among others.

One advantage Momah has is size. He needs to take advantage of it.

“Last year I was playing down, as just a regular receiver, but now I’m trying to use my size,” Momah said. “If anybody’s around me, it doesn’t matter -- I’m the biggest guy out there. It’s kind of like basketball -- box them out, take the ball and stay up and score.”
