The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have signed LB Monte Simmons.

An undrafted free agent signing of San Francisco in 2011, Simmons (6-3, 226) spent his entire rookie campaign on the 49ers practice squad. A four-year defensive end at Kent State, the 23-year-old finished his collegiate career with 21.5 sacks, three shy of the school record. He earned second-team All-MAC accolades following his junior season in 2009 after leading the team with 8.5 sacks and 16 tackles for a loss. The Swissville, PA, native earned first-team all-conference honors as a senior at Woodland Hills High School.
