The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Friday that they signed undrafted rookie free agent Jacory Harris. The signing takes place just in time for Harris to join Philadelphia’s rookie camp this weekend.
The signing puts the team’s roster at 90, the maximum for NFL rosters at this state of the offseason.
Harris (6-4, 195) was a three-year starter at Miami (Florida), receiving the team’s Offensive Player of the Year award for 2011. He was second in school history in passing yards and touchdowns, totaling 8,826 passing yards and 70 touchdowns. Harris also had five rushing scores in his college career.
