Eagles add tight end, linebacker

The Eagles signed tight end Tony Curtis and linebacker Curtis Gatewood and released former Temple quarterback Adam DiMichele and wide receiver Shaheer McBride, from Chester.

Curtis worked out for the team Friday and it seemed unlikely he would be offered a contract. He was released Aug. 4 by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Before being signed by the Chiefs this spring, he had been with the Dallas Cowboys. He appeared in 36 games with 11 catches for 50 yards and three touchdowns.

Gatewood was claimed by the Detroit Lions in April after being waived by the Chiefs. He signed with the Washington Redskins as a rookie free agent following the 2008 draft. After spending most of the season on the Redskins practice squad, Gatewood signed with the Chiefs on in November and appeared in four games.

Curtis will wear No. 83 and Gatewood will wear  No. 48.
