The Eagles released punter Chas Henry and re-signed Mat McBriar, who was a two-time Pro Bowl selection in eight seasons with the Cowboys. McBriar, 33, signed a two-year deal. He was in training camp with the Eagles but wasn't fully healthy, coach Andy Reid said. Henry signed with the Eagles in 2011 as an undrafted free agent after an All-SEC senior season at Florida. He was largely inconsistent last season as a rookie. However, he was averaging nearly 49 yards per punt this season. McBriar played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2004-11. He has a 45.3-yard career average, which ranks fifth in NFL history. McBriar's career net average is 38.4 yards and he has downed 175 punts inside the opponents' 20-yard line. McBriar (6-0, 227) earned All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors with the Cowboys following the 2006 and 2010 seasons and joined Darren Bennett as the only native of Australia to be named to the Pro Bowl.
