The Eagles are expected to announce Monday the undrafted rookie free agents that they signed after the draft. But most of the names have already emerged.

Purdue quarterback Joey Elliott, a 6-foot-2, 216-pound rookie, inked a deal with the Eagles moments after the draft concluded Saturday afternoon, according to the Courier-Press in Evansville, Ill.

So, too, did Boilermakers cornerback David Penders, according to the report.

The Eagles drafted another Big Ten quarterback on Saturday, selecting Northwestern’s Mike Kafka in the fourth round.
