Eagles Add Four To Practice Squad

The Eagles finished off their practice squad, adding three players who played with them throughout the preseason and signing linebacker Jeremy Leman, who was with Carolina throughout the preseason.

Joining Leman on the practice squad are fullback Marcus Mailei, saety Reshard Langford and cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu.

The 6-2, 240-pound Leman was originally signed by the Minnesota Vikings as a rookie free agent in 2008, but was released by the Vikings prior to the start of the regular season. He signed with the Panthers during the 2009 off-season and saw action in all four preseason games, registering 19 tackles.

A native of Champaign, IL, Leman was a four-year starter at Illinois and finished his collegiate career with 407 tackles and 8.5 sacks. He earned first-team All-America honors following his senior season in 2007.

That gives the Eagles eight players on the practice squad. Players can be dropped or added at any time, as long as the numbers of players on the practice squad does not exceed eight. Players can also be signed off the practice squad and added to another team's 53-man roster.
