Rookie Eagles defensive tackle Cedric Thornton has worked his way up from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
And it's taken effort as this video clip illustrates.
Thornton now is acing this drill (much to the chagrin of teammates searching for comic relief). He could be activated Sunday when the Eagles oppose the Jets at Lincoln Financial Field.
To beat the Jets the Eagles must limit the ground game with running back Shonn Greene. To stop the run the Eagles need a fresh rotation of linemen.
