With rookie defensive tackle Jeff Owens now on Injured Reserve, the Eagles have signed veteran defensive tackle Jeremy Clark to the 53-man roster. Clark inked a three-year contract on Thursday.
Now in his second stint in Philadelphia, Clark (6-3, 295) was originally a rookie free agent signing of the Eagles in 2007 and spent that entire season on the practice squad. Since then he has spent time with the New York Giants (2008-09), Atlanta Falcons (2009), Arizona Cardinals (2010), and Dallas Cowboys (2010). Most recently, he was with the Washington Redskins but was released by the team on December 25. He has appeared in six career games (four with the Giants in 2008; two with the Cowboys in 2010), recording six tackles and a half sack.
A four-year starter at Alabama, Clark registered 85 tackles and 4.5 sacks in his career with the Crimson Tide. The 27-year-old is a native of Daphne, AL, and was an all-state selection at Daphne High School.
