Eagles sign Te'o-Nesheim

The Eagles have signed defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, their third round draft pick. He was chosen 86th overall, out of Washington and signed a four-year contract.

Te'o-Nesheim finished his college career with 30 sacks, a Washington record. He is part of a remade defensive end grouping, which includes Pro Bowler Trent Cole, Juqua Parker, first round pick Brandon Graham and Darryl Tapp, acquired in an off-season trade with Seattle.

Coach Andy Reid has praised Te'o-Nesheim's intelligence and flexibility. On some nickel packages in recent practices the smallish (for a defensive end) rookie was playing on the interior of the line.

The deal leaves Graham, second round pick Nate Allen and fifth rounder Riley Cooper as the Eagles' only unsigned draft picks.
