The Eagles signed former Chicago Bears wide receiver Joe Anderson on Friday. It was the team’s first acquisition in nearly a month.

Anderson, who is 6-foot-1 and 196 pounds, played nine games during the past two seasons with the Bears. He did not record a catch, spending his time as a special teams contributor. He returned five kicks last season for an average of 16.4 yards, with a long of 21 yards. The Bears placed Anderson on injured reserve last November with an abdominal and groin injury.

Anderson has caught touchdowns in the past two preseasons for the Bears. The 25-year-old played college football at Texas Southern and went undrafted.
