Poll

How many sacks will the Eagles have against the Cowboys?

Beatty, 32, has played only six games since 2014. But he started 63 games for the New York Giants’ offensive line between 2009 and 2014, even winning a Super Bowl with the Giants. He’s the second player the Eagles signed this week who has a Super Bowl ring. The 6-foot-6, 319-pound Connecticut product grew up in York, Pa.

Beatty provides experience to a line that already lost Jason Peters for the season. The Eagles will likely stick with Halapoulivaati Vaitai at left tackle, with Beatty and Isaac Seumalo as the top reserve options.
