Eagles sign DT Treyvon Hester to the practice squad

The Eagles signed defensive tackle Treyvon Hester to the practice squad on Monday morning. To make room for him, the Eagles released running back Adrian Killins.

If the name sounds familiar, Hester was with the team in the 2018 season and registered 20 tackles and a sack as a reserve defensive tackle. Hester started one game and played 22 percent of the snaps.

Hester's biggest play came in the Wild Card Round win over Chicago when he tipped kicker Cody Parkey's last-second field goal attempt that doinked off the upright and the crossbar before falling to the ground in front of the goal post.

A seventh-round pick of the Raiders in 2017 out of Toledo, Hester spent last season with Washington and this past offseason with the Green Bay Packers.

Killins, a rookie free agent out of Central Florida, was called up from the practice squad for one game against the San Francisco 49ers and played eight snaps on offense.
