Eagles Sign S Antoine Harris

The Eagles announced that they have signed safety Antoine Harris to a contract and waived/injured safety Brett Johnson (hamstring). *Correction - Johnson and the Eagles came to a waived injury settlement.

Harris (5-10, 202) spent the last three seasons (2007-09) with the Atlanta Falcons, playing in 35 games and recording 10 tackles and 11 special teams tackles. In 2009, he played in 10 games and tallied three special teams tackles before being placed on Injured Reserve on 12/22/09 with a knee injury.

The 28-year old Harris was originally signed as a rookie free agent out of Louisville by the Tennessee Titans following the 2005 draft, and spent the next two seasons (2005-06) on the team's practice squad.

A native of Columbus, OH, Harris started 18 games at Louisville, where he compiled 79 tackles, five interceptions, 20 passes defensed and one fumble recovery after converting from wide receiver to cornerback after his sophomore season.

Johnson was claimed off waivers earlier this month.
