Eagles cut Rucker; sign TE

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The Eagles signed Nate Lawrie, a blocking tight end, and released tight end Martin Rucker.

The 28-year-old Lawrie has played sparingly in the NFL over the last several years with three separate teams. He last played with the Bengals in 2008. He has four career receptions for 48 yards.

Rucker had been injured for most of training camp with a hamstring strain. Even before the injury he failed to stand out. The Eagles picked him up off waivers last year and stuck him on the practice squad for most of the season. He made some nice receptions as part of the scout team, but has been outplayed by rookie Clay Harbor at camp this year.

Check back for more from camp.
