Eagles Sign C Matt Tennant

The Eagles have signed center Matt Tennant to the 53-man roster and released center Steve Vallos. Tennant, 25, was originally a fifth-round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2010. He played 28 games over two seasons with the Saints.

After he was released during the final roster cutdown on September 1, Tennant was claimed by the New England Patriots, who subsequently released him and picked him up again, only to release him for the second time three days ago on October 20. He did not play in a game for the Patriots.

Tennant played collegiately at Boston College, where he started 41 career games and was an All-ACC performer as a senior. He will likely serve as the primary backup at center to Dallas Reynolds.

Vallos was originally released by the Eagles as part of the final roster cutdown and was re-signed following the season-ending injury to Jason Kelce. An All-American and two-time All-ACC performer at Wake Forest, Vallos was inactive for the Eagles in each of the last two games.
