The third-round pick out of Georgia is the fourth of five draft picks to sign.
The on-field work begins Friday for the rookies. The Eagles added to their draft class with 12 players signed in the post-draft period.
Sixth-round picks Kyron Johnson and Grant Calcaterra also put pen to paper on Thursday.
The Eagles added a Pro Bowl wide receiver in A.J. Brown, five draft picks, and several others in the post-draft signing frenzy. Plus, one Eagle literally flew on the track while another makes a position change.
Five draft picks and a Pro Bowl wide receiver provide another strong foundation layer for the Eagles to build upon.
Between SMU and Oklahoma, Calcaterra amassed over 1,100 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in his college career.
The Eagles moved up seven spots in a trade with the Lions to nab the three-time captain at Kansas.
After wheeling and dealing on Thursday night, the Eagles landed two potential cornerstone players in center Cam Jurgens and linebacker Nakobe Dean by staying put and letting the draft come to them.
The leader of the National Champions and anchor of the best defense in college football is reunited with his teammate, Jordan Davis, in Philadelphia.
Behind the 6-foot-6, 340-pound mammoth defensive tackle is a mother who cheered for the Eagles long before her son was a first-round pick.
Jurgens was a three-year starter at Nebraska, earning All-Big Ten honors last season.
