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.

The following undrafted rookies also signed free agent deals with the Eagles, according to various accounts:
Tennessee-Chattanooga wide receiver Blue Cooper (Chattanoogan), Colgate receiver Pat Simonds (Oneonta (N.Y.) Daily Star), LSU defensive tackle Charles Alexander (The Times-Picayune), West Texas A&M running back Keith Flemming (Amarillo Globe-News), San Jose State wide receiver Kevin Jurovich (San Jose Mercury-News), and Massachusetts fullback Chris Zardas (Boston Globe).

After the draft the Eagles had 71 players on their roster. They have until the start of minicamp Friday to get to the maximum of 80.
