Eagles sign DT, work out DT

The 24-year-old played his college football at Louisville.

With Trevor Laws injured the Eagles needed to bring in a d-tackle to shoulder some of the camp load. The team also isn't particularly deep at that position which is why they also worked out d-tackle Jesse Bowman today. Bowman, out of Mississippi State, was an undrafted rookie free agent.
