Eagles Sign Dexter McDougle, Waive/Injure Destiny Vaeao

The Eagles announced on Tuesday they have waived/injured defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao and signed cornerback Dexter McDougle. They also released linebacker Kyle Wilson from the practice squad and signed both linebacker B.J. Bello and defensive tackle Winston Craig to the practice squad.

Vaeao was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State in 2016. In his rookie year, he became the second undrafted Eagle ever to record multiple sacks. In six games (three starts) this season, Vaeao has six tackles, a tackle for loss, three quarterback hits, and a sack of Eli Manning in Thursday's win over the Giants.

McDougle played for the Eagles in 2017 for the first eight games of the season before being released on November 14. He then played briefly for the New Orleans Saints last season. He spent the offseason and Training Camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars before being released following the third preseason game. He was a member of the Detroit Lions for a short time at the end of the preseason before being released on August 31.

Bello, a 6-3, 229-pound product of Illinois State, had six tackles last season as a member of the Cleveland Browns after signing with them as an undrafted free agent in the spring. The 23-year-old joined the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad after 53-man roster cuts and was released on September 18.

Craig spent 2017 on the Eagles' practice squad after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Richmond. He was released on January 9, signed again on February 20, and spent Training Camp with the Eagles. He was signed to the practice squad on September 2 and then released on September 9. He had two tackles in the Eagles' preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on August 3.
