The Eagles re-signed rookie safety Phillip Thomas to the practice squad and released defensive tackle Frank Trotter. Thomas, an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse, spent the offseason with the team but did not make the final cut. The Eagles are thin at safety, and on Monday night were without the services of Nate Allen (hamstring). David Sims got the start against the Saints and had a spotty outing.
Meanwhile, former Eagle Jaiquawn Jarrett got his second tryout with the Lions, according to Adam Caplan. The second-round pick out of Temple was released by the Eagles on September 11. Jarrett has also reportedly worked out for the Jets since being cut.
