The Eagles worked out four veteran punters on Monday morning, when the team opened training camp with a walk-through that included rookies and selected veterans.

The punters were Brad Maynard, who has played for the Giants, Texans and Browns; Mat McBriar, a former Cowboys standout; Chris Bryan, who played in Tampa Bay; and Jason Baker, who played for six teams, including the Eagles.

The Eagles are expected to sign one to provide competition to Chas Henry, who is entering his second season. 

McBriar and Bryan are both Australian, and McBriar was a Pro Bowler in 2006 and 2010. Baker and Maynard are established veterans with more than 2,000 combined punts in the NFL.
