The Philadelphia Eagles have signed tackle Allen Barbre.
Barbre, 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds, has played in 32 games in six seasons with Green Bay, Miami and Seattle. A fourth-round pick by the Packers in 2007, Barbre has made seven career starts.
He was released by the Seahawks on Oct. 1.
Barbre was a four-year starter at Missouri Southern State.
The Eagles went 4-12 last season and finished in last place in the NFC East. Philadelphia is still in coach-search mode for a replacement to the fired Andy Reid.
