The Eagles have signed wide receiver Rod Harper and safety Jamart Adams to the practice squad, the team announced.
Harper, 6-0, 209, was originally a rookie free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2008. He then joined the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 preseason and impressed by returning two punts for touchdowns to make the active roster before going on injured reserve in October with a foot injury. He joins Chad Hall and Jeremy Williams as receivers on the practice squad. After yesterday's release of Hank Baskett, there are only four wide receivers on the active roster.
Adams, 6-2, 212, has spent the last two seasons bouncing back and forth between the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad and active roster, notching four special teams tackles in seven career games. He fills the practice squad safety void created by the release of Chip Vaughn yesterday. There are only three safeties, Quintin Mikell, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman, on the active roster.
