On Saturday, the Eagles elevated safety Jared Mayden from the practice squad to the active roster just for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. He will revert back to the practice squad on Monday.

Signed to the Eagles' practice squad on October 26, Mayden is set to make his Eagles debut. A rookie free agent signing of the 49ers out of Alabama in 2020, Mayden played in two games as a practice squad call-up for San Francisco last year on special teams.

The 6-foot, 205-pound Mayden is 23 years old. A native of Sachse, Texas, Mayden comes from an athletic family. His father, James Sr., played college basketball at Oklahoma and his uncle, Tyrone Washington, was a former second-round pick of the Houston Rockets. Mayden's older brother, James, was a wide receiver at Rice University, while his younger brother, Jalen, is a quarterback at San Diego State.

At Alabama, Mayden played in 36 games (11 starts) from 2016-19. In his final season on campus, Mayden started 11 of 12 games and hauled in four interceptions to rank second in the SEC.
