The Philadelphia Eagles have signed punter Donnie Jones formerly of the Houston Texans. Jones was let go by the Texans after they signed Shane Lechler.
Mat McBriar spent the 2012 season with the Eagles. He is unlikely to be out of work for too long as he has always possessed a strong leg and last season was no different with a 46.5 gross average.
The Eagles were due to pay McBriar a $50,000 roster bonus if he was still on the team at 4 pm EST.

A First Look at the Philadelphia Eagles Offense
A lot has been discussed about Chip Kelly and his offense, and how it is going to work (or not) in the NFL. The key for Chip Kelly's system has always been good quick decisions, then speed with the football. The Eagles definitely have speed, and that is something you can not teach. Here is a look at what Chip Kelly...
As March draws to a close, football’s focus turns increasingly to the upcoming 2013 NFL draft, which is exactly one month away. The Philadelphia Eagles will get the spotlight early, selecting fourth due to their abysmal 4-12 2012 season. With the stakes so high, Philadelphia cannot afford to miss with their draft choice. This year’s draft will be different from that of 2012,...
Coach Chip Kelly doesn’t know where Desean Jackson got the idea he would use him like De’Anthony Thomas, a running back for the Oregon Ducks.
When asked how he thought he would be utilized, "Kind of similar to what De'Anthony Thomas was doing at Oregon," Jackson replied. Kelly cleared that picture up quickly, pointing out they are two different players.
The Eagles already have Brent Celek, but James Casey isn’t a traditional tight end. He can play fullback and h-back as well and played 668 snaps in 18 games for the Texans last year even though they had both Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham. He caught 38 passes for 379 yards and 3 touchdowns on 48 targets, grading out above average as a pass catcher on ProFootballFocus, while holding...
Nnamdi Asomugha has offers from the Saints and 49ers. The cornerback is said to be deciding which of the two teams he will sign with according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Each team offers a different perk for the corner who will turn 32 before the start of the 2013 season. In San Francisco he would return to the bay area but New Orleans offers a sure starting job.
Anytime a team signs a big-name free agent, players get excited. When that player is Ed Reed, who is considered one of the best defensive backs of all time, excitement could be an understatement with the Texans.
Following the news that the veteran safety had officially signed a three-year deal, star defensive end J.J. Watt went to Twitter to welcome the former Raven:
Ed Reed didn’t think he would be leaving the Ravens this offseason. After signing a deal with the Texans, the 11-year NFL veteran has a new view on the business side of the NFL.
Reed told 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore that leaving the Ravens organization was the hardest thing he’s ever done in his life. Reed said he believed the Ravens might be able to keep the core of their Super...
