The Eagles finalized their 53-man roster by signing offensive lineman Matt Kopa from the Patriots' practice squad.

Kopa, 6-6 and 310 pounds, spent the last two seasons with the Patriots' practice squad. He was previously on the 49ers' practice squad and the Dolphins' active roster. Kopa went to Stanford and switched from defensive line to offensive line during his junior year in college.

The Eagles now have nine offensive linemen on the roster. Kopa joins Nate Menkin as a developmental tackle.
