The Eagles have signed punter Durant Brooks to a 2-year deal to provide depth and potentially competition for Sav Rocca, who will be a restricted free agent.

Brooks was not in the league last season after being drafted in the sixth round in 2008 by Washington and appearing in six games. He had a gross average of 39.6 yards per punt and a net average of 32.1 yards per punt for the Redskins before being released.

He spent the remainder of that season on Green Bay’s practice squad and was with the Packers until the end of training camp before this past season.

Brooks won the Ray Guy Award as a senior at Georgia Tech as the best punter in the country. He also was tutored by Guy, a family friend and fellow Georgian.
