Eagles sign Remington and new-face Keelan Johnson to practice squad

The Eagles added two more players to their practice squad, signing offensive lineman Isaac Remington and safety Keelan Johnson on Tuesday.

The team still has one of eight practice squad spots to fill.

Remington (6-foot-6, 305 pounds) spent training camp and the preseason with the Eagles. He was originally signed as an undrafted rookie defensive lineman, but towards the end of camp was switched to the offensive line.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly has stressed having versatile players on his team. Remington played for Kelly at Oregon, as did three former Ducks on the Eagles’ 53-man roster – safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Casey Matthews and wide receiver Jeff Maehl.

Johnson, signed as an undrafted rookie in April, was recently released by the Dolphins. The 6-0, 209-pound safety attended Arizona State and led the team in interceptions with five.

Tackle Michael Bamiro, running back Michael Tucker, linebacker Travis Long, receiver Greg Salas and safety Trenton Robinson were added to the practice squad on Sunday and Monday.
