The Eagles have added three more undrafted free agents, including cornerback Devin Ross, from the University of Arizona, and claimed guard Shawn Murphy off waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That brings the list of undrafted free agents to 14, heading into this weekend's minicamp.

Ross, 5-10, 183, was a two-year starter for the Wildcats in the secondary and also returned kickoffs.

He had 50 tackles, three interceptions and 13 pass breakups as a junior, while returning 24 kickoffs for an average of 20.4 yards with a long of 52.

As a senior, he was the team's leading tackler with 81, with an interception and 12 pass breakups, although teams often threw away from him. He was not used as a kick returner.


The Eagles also signed running Keithon Flemmning from West Texas A&M and defensive end Eric Moncur from Miami.

Despite being sidelined for the first six games of the 2009 season due to a dislocated elbow, Flemming scored a team-high 16 TDs and averaged 134 all-purpose yards per game. He earned LSC South co-offensive back of the year honors. Over his career, he accounted for 4,008 all-purpose yards, including 12 100-yard rushing performances. He concluded his career sixth on the West Texas A&M career rushing chart, fifth on the receptions list and is second on the career scoring charts.


Moncur registered 110 tackles and eleven sacks in his career at Miami, posting a career-high and ranking second on the team with six sacks in 2007. He attended Carol City High School in Miami, FL, where he racked up 34 sacks in his final two seasons and earned SuperPrep All-America honors.


Murphy was a 4th round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins in 2008. The 6-4, 315-pound lineman was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on Oct. 21, 2009, after being released by Miami.

Murphy, a native of Highland, Utah, was a two-year starter at Utah State. He is son of former Braves and Phillies All-Star outfielder Dale Murphy.

The Eagles' rookies are scheduled to arrive Thursday in advance of Friday's first practice, which is at 10 a.m.

The team's coordinators, including new special teams boss Bobby April, are scheduled to speak with the media on Saturday.
