Report: Eagles Sign QB Nagy

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles have signed former Arena Football League quarterback Matt Nagy. All the Eagles had to do was promote him, as he's already working for the team as a coaching intern. The Eagles have not made any official announcement. They would have to make an additional roster move to comply with the 80-man roster limit. The Eagles will be without Kevin Kolb for the preseason opener against the Patriots after he suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee on Monday morning. Kolb will be day-to-day after Thursday's game. If the Eagles do not make a roster move, they will just have Donovan McNabb and A.J. Feeley at the quarterback position for the game.

A third-team All-American at Delaware, Nagy spent six seasons in the Arena Football League where he completed 65.5 percent of his passes for 18,866 yards, 374 touchdowns against just 55 interceptions.

UPDATE: *The Philadelphia Inquirer *is reporting that wide receiver Brandon Robinson is the player who will be released to make room for Nagy.
