Soul tweaks roster after first loss

New Soul WR Tyrone Goard
PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Soul tweaked their roster a bit after suffering their first setback of the season in Jacksonville last Saturday.

Wide receiver Tyrone Goard, a 6-foot-4 Eastern Kentucky product who was recently released by the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers was activated from the other-league-exempt list while WR Harvey Binford (6-0,  Lindenwood) was placed on recallable waivers and offesnive lineman Keith Newell (6-6, Delaware State) was moved to injured reserve.

Also the 7-1 Soul activated WR Lonnie Outlaw (6-6, Miles) from injured reserve and OL Daverin Geralds (6-2, Mississippi) from the refuse-to-report list. Finally fullback Tommy Taggart (6-3, Oklahoma) and defensive back Dwayne Hollis (5-10, NC Wesleyan) were added to the inactive reserve.

"This time of year, you will see teams make a couple of tweaks to the roster due to injury or situations," Soul head coach Clint Dolezel said.  "This is no different for us as we try to adjust to injuries and match-up with what we have in the upcoming weeks."

The Soul will face the Tampa Bay Storm on May 23 in Central Florida before returning home to take on the Las Vegas Outlaws (3-4) in the first ever Boardwalk Bowl at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
