5 Named to Practice Squad; Max is Back

As expected, guard Max Jean-Gilles has re-signed with the Eagles, the team announced.

Jean-Gilles was cut Saturday when the trade of Stacy Andrews to Seattle wasn't completed by the NFL's 6 p.m. deadline for cutting rosters to the regular-season limit of 53. Eagles officials and Jean-Gilles' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he would return to the team today.

The roster now stands at 53, and the Birds have named 5 members of what can be an 8-member practice squad. So far we know that WR Chad Hall, RB Martell Mallett, OL Dallas Reynolds, DT Jeff Owens and C A.Q. Shipley are on.
