The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to sign TE John Nalbone to a future contract, a source confirmed.
Nalbone, who was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the 2009 NFL Draft, spent his rookie season with the team. He was waived in September by the Dolphins. He signed with the Minnesota Vikings practice squad, but was released a few weeks later. He then signed one week later with the Denver Broncos practice squad.
Nalbone’s practice squad contract expired on Monday. Denver had interest in re-signing him, but the athletic pass catcher decided to sign with the Eagles, who are looking to upgrade their third tight end position.
