Per ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Eagles may not be done bolstering the special teams unit. Caplan reported that the Eagles hosted free agent running back Cedric Peerman on Tuesday.

Originally a sixth-round draft choice of the Baltimore Ravens in 2009, Cedric Peerman has appeared in 70 games over his six-year career, recording 64 carries for 334 yards and one touchdown, while adding 13 receptions for 123 yards through the air.

Most recently, Peerman (5-10, 214) provided depth at the running back position for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2010-14, while also contributing as a key member of the team's special teams units. Peerman led the Bengals in special teams tackles (15) in 2014 and ranked fourth on the team in 2013 with 10 special teams tackles.

Per Stats Inc., Peerman was tied for sixth in the entire league in special teams tackles, while wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, signed by the Eagles to a one-year deal on Tuesday, was tied for third.

Peerman, 28, spent the first half of his rookie season with the Cleveland Browns before joining the Detroit Lions for the latter part of the campaign, appearing in two games with the team. He signed with the Bengals in April of 2010.
