The Eagles continued to churn the bottom of the roster Friday by signing tight end Alex Ellis. To make room on the 90-man roster, linebacker Joey Alfieri was waived.
Ellis spent the 2018 season with the Kansas City Chiefs where he appeared in two games. Philadelphia is the fifth team that the 6-4, 236-pound tight end has been a part of since entering the league as a rookie free agent with the Titans in 2016. A native of Delmar, Delaware, Ellis' most extensive playing time came in 2016 with Jacksonville where he caught three passes in six games.
