The Eagle who once said, "Kill, maim, destroy," at his introductory press conference is back.

With an open roster spot after quarterback Carson Wentz was placed on Injured Reserve on Tuesday, the Eagles re-signed defensive end/special teams ace Bryan Braman.

The Eagles were able to beat the Rams last Sunday, but punter Donnie Jones had a punt that was blocked and returned for a touchdown. Philadelphia already lost special teams captain Chris Maragos earlier in the season due to a knee injury.

Braman spent the past three years with the Eagles and the team finished No. 1 in Dallas Morning News columnist Rick Gosselin's special teams rankings, considered the standard in the NFL, in two of them. The Eagles scored 12 touchdowns on special teams during Braman's tenure.

Last season, he notched the 50th special teams tackle of his career in the win over Minnesota.

The 6-5, 241-pound Braman signed with the Saints as a free agent late in the preseason but was released during the final roster cutdown.

Braman originally entered the league as a rookie free agent signing of the Houston Texans in 2011 out of West Texas A&M. He was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2012 after he blocked two punts and returned one for his first NFL touchdown.
