In what amounted to a trade of released players, the New York Giants signed Jerome McDougle after he was released by the Eagles Saturday and the Eagles countered this afternoon by claiming linebacker Tank Daniels off waivers a day after he was released by New York.
To make room on the roster for Daniels, the Eagles released Rocky Boiman, who had signed a one-year deal as a free agent in the offseason.
Daniels, 26, started his career with the Eagles in 2006. After signing as an undrafted free agent, he was among the final cuts his rookie season, but was signed to the practice squad. He made his NFL debut in a game at Indianapolis and played in the Eagles' final six games and both playoff games.
