Twenty players participated in the Eagles' Rookie Camp on a tryout basis this past weekend. One of them still has a shot to make the final roster.

On Sunday, the Eagles waived/injured quarterback Jerod Evans due to a foot injury. In his place, the Eagles signed tackle Victor Salako.

A four-year starter at left tackle, the Huntsville, Alabama native started his college career at Alabama-Birmingham, where he started 23 games in his first two seasons. After UAB disbanded its football program, Salako went to Oklahoma State and started every game in both 2015 and '16. He was named a second-team All-Big 12 selection by the coaches this past year.

Salako's massive frame at 6-6, 335 pounds gives the Eagles a prospect to work with at a talented and crowded position group.
