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

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.

How will the return of Michael Vick affect the Eagles’ chances of making the playoffs?
A lot. The Eagles can win out and make the playoffs with Vick running the show.
Not at all. Even Vick at his best can’t save this team from missing the postseason.
