Eagles sign LB Jeanty

With free agency likely to be stalled by a lockout, the only player movement right now is coming from street free agents, guys who had no contracts when the season ended.

So today the Eagles signed another one of those players, agreeing to a one-year deal with linebacker Rashad Jeanty. Jeanty, a forme Bengal, has 32 career starts, but he missed the entire 2010 season after breaking his fibula in the 2009 playoffs.

He played with Cincinnati from 2006 to 2009 after playing in the Canadian Football League from 2003 to 2005. Jeanty, 27, played his college ball at Central Florida, with Asante Samuel.

Until a new CBA is signed, the Eagles only chance for personnel improvement will be through the draft. With the NFL Combine starting this week, we looked today at some of the potential draft picks the Eagles might be eyeing.
