The Eagles wasted no time Monday improving their roster and locking up some young talent.
A former 2006 second-round pick of the New York Giants, wide receiver Sinorice Moss agreed to terms with the Eagles. Moss has 39 receptions for 421 yards and three touchdowns in his four-year career, while posting his most productive season in 2007 (21 catches for 225 yards).
Moss was in competition for the Giants return specialist job in the 2010 preseason when he suffered a sports hernia and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. He was officially waived by the Giants on November 9, reaching an injury settlement.
The 27-year-old Moss now joins an already stacked receiving corps with the likes of two-time Pro Bowl wideout DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin (fresh of his career-high 10 touchdowns this season) and the always-reliable Jason Avant.
The Eagles also agreed to terms with center A.Q Shipley, guard Dallas Reynolds and receiver Rod Harper, who each spent the 2010 season on the Eagles' practice squad.
The former All-America center from Penn State, Shipley was originally a seventh-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009, and spent that season on their practice squad. Shipley joined the Eagles in the 2010 offseason, and he spent the entire training camp and preseason with the team before being signed to the practice squad on September 5.
Reynolds played all five offensive line positions at BYU, and twice garnered first-team All-Mountain-West honors. Reynolds signed with the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2009, and was promoted to the active roster for the last two games of that season. This year, Reynolds spent the offseason with the Eagles and secured a place on the practice squad after a solid training camp.
Harper was signed to the Eagles practice squad on September 22, 2010. In 2009, Harper posted 1,375 receiving yards and 38 touchdowns for the Arkansas Twisters of the Arena Football 2 League before joining the New Orleans Saints on their 2009 practice squad. He was originally a 2008 rookie free agent signing of the Green Bay Packers.
