Eagles sign WR Robert Davis to the practice squad

The Eagles signed former Washington wide receiver Robert Davis to their practice squad on Monday.

A sixth-round pick of Washington in 2017 out of Georgia State, Davis has one catch for 11 yards in four career games. He opened the season on Washington's practice squad, was promoted to the active roster for three games, then waived on October 1.

At 6-3, 210 pounds, the 24-year-old Davis spent his rookie season on Washington's practice squad until late in the year when he made his NFL debut in Week 16 against Denver. A knee injury sidelined him for the entirety of his 2018 campaign.

A two-time, first-team Sun Belt Conference selection, Davis was just the second player in Georgia State history to be selected in the NFL Draft. He finished his career as the school's all-time leader in receptions (222) and receiving yards (3,391). Only Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had more receiving yards in conference history at the end of Davis' career.
