Eagles Sign WR Anderson

The Eagles signed former Bears wide receiver/special teamer Joe Anderson on Friday.

The 25-year-old Texas Southern product signed with Chicago as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and spent most of that season on the practice squad. Anderson has appeared in nine games overall since entering the league, with the bulk of his action coming on special teams. He was placed on injured reserve this past November with an abdonimal and groin injury.

Anderson (6-1, 196) returned punts and kicks some on the collegiate level. He returned five kicks for 82 yards (16.4 avg.) in 2013 for the Bears.
