Eagles nab Bobby April

As former Bills special teams coordinator Bobby April was being pursued by the likes of the Steelers and the Redskins, another candidate for his services was gliding under radar.
And that candidate has landed his services.
The Eagles have announced that April has been hired to take over Philly's special teams. He replaces special teams coordinator Ted Daisher.
The fact that the Eagles didn't fire Daisher until they had the newest bird in the hand allowed them to chase April discreetly.
The Eagles also have terminated the contracts of strength and conditioning coach Mike Wolf and assistant strength and conditioning coach Jay Merlino.
