Eagles sign safety to replace Anderson

The Eagles signed safety Tom Nelson to a two-year deal and placed safety Colt Anderson on the Injured Reserve list.


How will the return of Michael Vick affect the Eagles’ chances of making the playoffs?

Anderson tore his ACL on Thursday against the Seahawks and will have season-ending surgery on his knee.

Nelson last played for the Bengals from 2009-10 appearing in 21 games and starting in three. He notched 34 tackles, two pass deflections and an interception. Nelson, 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, spent the 2011 preseason with Cincinnati, but was released prior to the start of the regular season.
