The Eagles have claimed tackle D.J. Jones off of waivers from the Ravens, the team said.

The team also named Keith Gray assistant strength and conditioning coach to replace Roger Marandino, who became the head strength and conditioning coach with the Colts.

Jones, listed as 6-foot-5, 315 pounds, was an undrafted free agent who spent the first six weeks of the past season on the Dolphins' practice squad. He spent most of the rest of the year on Baltimore's practice squad and moved to the active roster in the final week of the season. He played tackle and guard at Nebraska in college.

Gray, 38, was the associate strength and conditioning coach at the University of Georgia. He played in college at Virginia Tech from 1991-1994, teaming then with Eugene Chung, who is an assistant to the Eagles' strength and conditioning coach.
