The Eagles signed three players to futures contracts on Tuesday: wide receivers Will Murphy and Ifeanyi Momah and linebacker Josh Kaddu.

That makes it two former Oregon players, and one fan favorite.

Momah, of course, is the fan favorite. The 6-foot-7, 239-pound receiver developed a strong following during the 2013 training camp and the preseason with the Eagles, although he recorded only three catches and he did not make the roster.The Eagles didn't even keep him on practice squad.

They kept Murphy on practice squad. The 6-foot-2, 193-pound receiver was with the team in training camp and the preseason, and was on the practice squad since Sept. 23. He played for Kelly at Oregon.
