Eagles Undrafted Free Agent Signings

NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Florida

We will keep this page updated with undrafted free agent signings.

Josh Andrews, OL, Oregon State (6-2, 311) – Andrews started 32 career games for the Beavers at guard and could have some versatility to play center.




Blake Annen, TE, Cincinnati (6-4, 247) - Annen caught 16 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in 2013. He reportedly ran a 4.41 at his Pro Day.

Karim Barton, OL, Morgan State (6-2, 313) - He started at right tackle for three seasons after transferring from junior college. He'll practice as an interior lineman for the Eagles.

Kadron Boone, WR, LSU (6-0, 204) - Boone finished his collegiate career with 611 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in 51 games. He reportedly ran a 4.44 at a private workout the Eagles attended.

Trey Burton, TE, Florida (6-2, 224) - A versatile player who appeared in 50 games, Burton finished his four-year career with 720 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns on 141 carries, while adding 107 catches for 976 yards and four touchdowns. As a senior, Burton moved to wide receiver full-time after playing multiple positions his first three years and finished third on the team with 38 receptions for 445 yards and one touchdown. Burton was named to the 2010 SEC All-Freshman Team after seeing action at quarterback, fullback, tight end, wide receiver and on kick coverage.

David Fluellen, RB, Toledo (5-11, 224) - Fluellen finished fourth in school history with 3,336 rushing yards. In nine games last season, he rushed 167 times for 1,121 yards (6.7 YPC) and 10 touchdowns. He missed time because of an ankle injury. Fluellen ran a 4.72 at the combine.

Josh Fulton, CB, Alabama (6-0, 195) - Fulton played in 49 games for the Crimson Tide, serving the majority of his time as a reserve cornerback and special teams player.

Kevin Graf, OL, USC (6-6, 309) -Graf earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors following his senior season. He was a three-year starter at USC and will get a look at tackle.

Donald Hawkins, OL, Texas (6-4, 301) - Hawkins started in 24 of his 25 career games as a two-year contributor for the Longhorns.

Henry Josey, RB, Missouri (5-8, 194) -He piled up 1,166 yards last year, averaged 6.7 YPC and scored 16 touchdowns. In 2011, he tore his ACL, patellar tendon, MCL and both the lateral and medial menisci, per NFL.com. Josey ran a 4.43 at the combine, the third-fastest time of any running back. He's arguably the most intriguing of any of the Eagles' undrafted free agents.

Wade Keliikipi, DT, Oregon (6-2, 303) - Keliikipi was a two-year starter and had 34 tackles, five tackles for loss, two sacks and one blocked kick. He played 50 games in his college career, amassing 97 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. Keliikipi is obviously familiar with Chip Kelly and defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro.

Daytawion Lowe, S, Oklahoma State (5-11, 196) - A three-year starter for the Cowboys, Lowe earned second-team All-Big 12 honors as a senior in 2013, finishing second on the team with 87 tackles and notching two interceptions. Lowe led Oklahoma State in tackles in both 2012 and 2011.

Frank Mays, DE, Florida A&M (6-9, 291) - Mays played in 11 games as a senior and led the team in sacks (4.0) while ranking second with 10.5 tackles for a loss.

Quron Pratt, WR, Rutgers (5-11, 195) - Named the Rutgers’ team MVP in 2013, Pratt appeared in all 13 games (nine starts), totaling 516 yards on 32 catches. Pratt was a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation Campbell Trophy, which is also known as the "Academic Heisman." He reportedly ran a 4.43 at his Pro Day.

Carey Spear, K, Vanderbilt (5-9, 194) - A three-time captain, Spear set a school single-season record as a senior with 99 points while connecting on 15 of his 19 field goal attempts. He made 35 of 43 field goal attempts the past two seasons. One Vanderbilt blog nicknamed him "Murderleg" and suggested he liked to launch himself at people on kickoff coverage. Spear will presumably compete with Alex Henery for the kicking job.

  • Will

    Eagles sign UDFA Carey Spears K Vanderbilt….yeah puts it in the end zone on kick offs….

    • Will

      Already happy about him

    • Glenn

      Boy do they need to upgrade the kicker position. Aren’t there better options than Spears, not that he isn’t good. Like Boswell from Rice.

    • TNA

      What happened to kickalicious dude?

  • Adam

    Murderleg? Now that’s a nickname I can get behind.

    • Max Lightfoot

      Better than Gammyleg

    • Armchairgm3

      Launches himself at people in kickoff coverage? Like the ambition kid.

      • HowieGambleChipsAllDay

        Yeah that’s a15 yd foul.

        • Armchairgm3

          Debbie downer

    • j

      sure beats henry’s “noodleleg” nickname

  • EaglefaninAZ

    Kicker! Here’s hoping.

  • dc

    81% success rate. pass…next.

    • Will

      on FG’s ? saw that like i said better choices out there but hey at least they addressed it…

      • Glenn

        Unfortunately, they addressed it with a kicker who is not really better than Henery. They needed to sign Boswell, a guy who would definitely be an upgrade. Remember the Saints playoff game anyone?

        • James Hathaway

          Nope. Refresh our memory.

        • Will

          a missed FG cost us the game in the end…agree better PK’s out there to be had…

      • j

        Don’t need accurate kicker considering how chips 4th down calls go…just one that can kick it out of the endzone

  • Rahkem

    His longest kick is 54 yards , not bad 3 yards longer than enereys longest , let hiom compete lets see

  • Glenn

    Brandon Coleman is a guy they should look at. Very surprised he wasn’t drafted.

    • Will

      I was surprised as well hope the Eagles consider him …

    • Joe L

      Being a Rutgers fan I’d rather see Coleman go somewhere with a less packed depth chart.

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      different kicker, different rutger receiver

    • Dylan MacKinnon

      Coleman to the Saints

      • Glenn

        Those darn Saints! Who swiped Brandin Cooks from us!

        • Dylan MacKinnon

          Coleman will end up being good now, Brees can make any big reciever look good

        • HowieGambleChipsAllDay

          Saints have been kicking our butts all year long. Somethings gotta give

  • Richard Colton

    Very excited about Fluellen. Been saying for years the Eagles need more Welshmen. Let’s make it two with Jones.

    • Rahkem

      i hope we get howard jones

      • Richard Colton

        was thinking Christian, but yeah. Why not?

        • Rahkem

          haha ill take either 1

          • Maggie

            Edwards Jones would be even better.

      • Maggie

        Wasn’t he big in the 80’s? “No One is to Blame”.

    • Johnny Domino

      Nigel Gruff is available.

      He’s wiry

  • The R

    Stephen Morris and Colt lyera should be grabbed

    • Joe L

      Morris got scooped up by Jax. Lyerla is still available.

  • JAMIN67

    Is it sad that out of all of these guys, I’m most excited over a kicker whose nickname is “Murderleg”?

    • Josh Zuckerman

      Look up his hits on youtube. He lights people up

  • Dilwala_G

    has someone signed shayne skov? if not, he’d be worth a look

    • Average__Joseph

      Raiders, I believe

    • anon

      Raiders

  • Glenn

    Also surprised Marcus Roberson,CB wasn’t drafted. Played with Watkins in the backfield at Florida. Maybe worth a look as a UFA. Character issues?

    • RIP illa

      4.61 without having superior length to make up for it…no thank you. I really believe that we are trying to get away from slower CBs, so that way we don’t have to play so much off coverage, and can actually start pressing more with bump and run. We really didn’t have much of a choice but too play off, with C-Will and Fletch being our starters, and not knowing what type of play/suspect play from our Safeties.

      Who knows, maybe moving forward with more faster and athletic CBs, will have Davis throwing more man coverage behind his blitzes, once the young/new guys get established.

  • RIP illa

    Who, if anyone, picked up Conner Shaw? Would like us to bring him in and see what he has.

    • Joe L

      Cleveland.

  • Bt

    Anyone msu lb bullough. Id be all over that dude and the tackle from tenn

    • Joe L

      Houston, immediately.

  • Rahkem

    David fluellen reminds me of Arian Foster , i dont care what he ran in the 40 hes SMOOTH as hell. Great pickup , i hope he gets a real chance to show what he can do in a preseason game i have a feeling hes gonna go off. The tape says he has a ton of potential but everyone passed because he ran 4.72

  • John E. Zang

    What about Lyerla? I’d take a flier on him. Off field issues big deal. He’s an Oregon duck.

    • ohitsdom

      Big deal, what’s a little coke?

    • John E. Zang

      Actually I take that back I just read about him and he sounds like a total tool bag and you can’t fix that. I’d be surprised if chip brought him in. Redskins or cowboys will probably pick him up.

    • EagleDuck

      Yeah, it’s not just the coke. He’s a problem child. Was his entire college career.

      • Rahkem

        I know , but dude is a beast , much more polished than blake annen i mean at some point he has to grow up , guys have turned it around before ,i would at least look into it if i was chip. But he knows better than me , if hes staying away its for good reason.

  • Eagles1018

    Hope this kicker has a big leg. Alex Henery is on the block

    • RIP illa

      He’s a little bit less accurate than Henery and his longest has been reported at 54 yards. Even if he beats him out, doesn’t seem like that big of an improvement. I mean Henery has been reported to drill 60 yards in pre-game and in practice, of course we’ve seen him be suspect in game situations, but if not consistently accurate, then it doesn’t really matter.

    • anon

      Not sure why they don’t go after that Norwegian guy.

    • UncleCarm

      I hope he can kick them out of the end zone so I don’t have to sit through another pooch kickoff game… ugh.

  • JosephR2225

    Did he really rush 67 times for 1,121 yards? That would be phenomenal.

    • oreofestar

      167 but still impressive

    • Dylan MacKinnon

      16 yards a carry, yeah that would be something lol. 167 attempts still equals 6.7 yards a carry though

  • Jon

    I like all of these signings, if for nothing else than to provide competition among the players and force them to perform their best.

  • cliff henny

    add blake Annen TE cinci

    • Malcolm Jones

      they did.

      • cliff henny

        really, howie’s finally listening to me? not sure that’s a good thing.

  • Armchairgm3

    Burton could be a stud for us. Versatile. Athletic. Big body guy. Love that pick up. Don’t know anything about the rest of these guys.

    • RIP illa

      I don’t get it. He’s an undersized TE playing WR.

      • Armchairgm3

        Living in Florida I’ve seen this guy play quite a bit. Don’t focus on labels. They lined him up all over the field. TE, WR, H back and quarterback. He’s very athletic. Good hands. And a hard worker. I think he catches on with us.

        • PaoliBulldog

          Sounds like a less athletic Russell Shepard :-(

        • RIP illa

          Alright cool. You’ve seen him so I’ll definitely defer.

          • Armchairgm3

            Not saying he’ll be a star. But like the potential for him to contribute.

      • ohitsdom

        I’m a gator & agree with armchair. Just think of Burton as another James Casey.

  • Eagles1018

    I like Pratt being added also

    • Brandon Pinkney

      Dude went to high school with me. Multiple sport guy, athletic as hell. Hopefully he finds a niche here!

  • EaglefaninAZ

    I’ve had 6 knee surgeries myself, but Josey’s sound brutal. The healing powers of youth I suppose.

    • PaoliBulldog

      The cumulative effect of those tears sounds dangerously close to a mid-leg amputation. And he ran a 4.43 40 this year? God, I love sports medicine.

      • UncleCarm

        That was the most devastating list of injuries I ever heard, and I assume it all happened on one play. Wow.

        • EaglefaninAZ

          It did. I had to find the tape just out of curiosity. Was taken down near the sideline, the foot was planted and never moved. Fortunately for me, the camera missed any real horror. I found it on youtube.

          • juaniflaco

            sounds worse than leonard weaver’s injury, and weaver never came close to playing again.

  • Eagles1018

    @EaglesInsider: Howe Roseman calls Bryce Brown trade a win-win for both sides … “We weren’t looking to dump him, but … there was opportunity for value”

    Beating it to death yes, BUT….you could get NOTHING back for DJax and he is the only player that left and didn’t get any sort of warm fuzzy goodbye. He must have really pissed someone off on this team…..

    • cliff henny

      or 1 yr 500k vs 3yrs 30m. wonder what will happen to Graham. might as well june 1st cut the guy at this point.

      • oreofestar

        why you save nothing by cutting him and it is not like he will have trouble making the roster so deal with it and hope you get a comp pick

        • cliff henny

          save some, spread dead money out over2 yrs. cant believe he wont be slightly disgruntled being buried on depth chart. maybe camp trade

          • oreofestar

            we save like close to nothing, what we save is not worth losing the depth IMO I do not want to get rid of just to get rid of him we did not get anything so keep him

          • RIP illa

            I’m thinking one of Howie’s player for player trades during or just as camp is gonna finish.

          • Johnny Domino

            Yeah, some 4-3 end goes down in a preseason game and maybe the market changes.

  • jesse

    Did anyone snatched up Christian Jones? Not sure why all the negative if it was just pot. Perry sure Huff had a D.U.I. With marrajuanna

    • oreofestar

      Jags got him already

      • Hanibal Luis

        Jags got everybody apparently.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Good morning. Ok, a kicker! Who apparently has a homicidal leg. Is that like idle hands are the devil’s hands? Can he hit 35yders with his eyes close?

  • A Cobb

    any word on Adrian Hubbard? athletic OLB/DE would love to see in green

    • JosephR2225

      From Hubbard’s scouting report. Granted, it’s Nolan Nawrocki, so take it with a grain of salt, but tell me if it sounds like anybody we used to know.

      “Has a quirky personality, inflated opinion of his ability and carries a sense of entitlement that could be difficult to manage and require a patient positional coach.”

      • IAteLunchToday

        T.O.?

      • Penfold

        FredEx?

      • hillbillybirdsfan

        Maybe having to sign as an UDFA will put a pin in that balloon and he can get down to business. Kicking tires only costs a bit of money at this point.

  • A Cobb

    pulling for Josey to find a role on squad… maybe a KR/PR

  • Fryer

    GET LYERLA!

    • John E. Zang

      Thought the same thing until I figured out how much of a tool bag he is.

  • TheCatalyst

    Donnie Longball + Murderleg? We will definitely have the market cornered on kickers with awesome nicknames.

  • James

    Damn, I wanted Eagles to sign Dion bailey. Now he’s another UFA safety signed by the Seahawks. He’ll be a Superbowl MVP for sure!

    • Hanibal Luis

      I liked Bailey too. From now on when a player we wanted gets drafted/signs with someone else, my default answer will be “didn’t fit the scheme”.

      “Why didn’t we sign that kicker?” – Didn’t fit the scheme.

      • James

        Of course “We didn’t sign him for football reasons.”

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Lol, what scheme are we running for our kickers? We hope not to use you except for PATs & KOs?

  • ohitsdom

    I’m a Gator fan too, so let me say I like the Burton signing. Burton reminds me very much of James Casey- versatile & willing to do whatever is asked of him. He must be in heaven because Florida’s offense has been SO BORING the last couple seasons. They definitely didn’t use him to his potential.

  • DoctorRick

    Chip just signed me as kicker!!

    • Eagles1018

      Anthony Fera, the kicker that received colleges highest honor a kicker can get in 2013 is still not drafted. He went 20/22 in 2013. Why haven’t we looked at him? He hit from 50 + in games this season for Texas. I don’t get it man…….

      • Andy124

        Because he’s a traitor.
        I kid. I don’t hold his transfer against him.

  • Maggie

    Henry Josey must have has some fine surgeons!!! Totally DESTROYED his entire knee structure, then 3 years later ran the third fastest time among his peers? And a definite work ethic!

    • Will

      He had the same doctors as the Six million dollar man

    • Eagledelphia

      He is beloved here in Columbia it is a longshot but I would love for him to make the team

  • Chip Kelly Jr

    The fact that we can finally get rid of Alex Henry makes this draft totally worth it…..

  • Monica Lewinsky

    I LOVE CLINTON-DIX

    • Eagles1018

      You would

    • CJ

      Haha!

  • DetmerWonAHeisman

    Did anyone sign Jackson Jeffcoat out of Texas? All American and Big-12 Defensive POY this season? Won the Hendricks award for nations best DE? I know he’s small for a DE (6’3’/250lbs, ran 4.63 40 at combine). Could see him as OLB in 3-4 system if he bulks up a little?

    • JofreyRice

      I think Seattle did.

      • DetmerWonAHeisman

        Figures……I read that all 32 teams attended his Pro Day, and then no one drafted him….wonder what they saw that made them pass on him…seems like would be worth the flier on him….Good bloodlines at least….

    • All chips in Kelly

      Seattle signed him as an Undrafted FA…. But dont worry we got Marcus Smith….. He probably as much as a project as jeffcoat is

      • Joe L

        Says another guy who hasn’t seen Smith play.

        • anon

          Smiths benefit is that he is an OLB with 3-4 experience — something that’s pretty hard to find.

          • Joe L

            I don’t see why people think Smith is a “project”. And go back and look at a guy like Daniel Jeremiah’s twitter. He’s been predicting Smith goes in the first round for a couple weeks now. The Eagles weren’t getting him at 54.

          • anon

            he’s a no-name guy that’s really an early second round guy. We had to draft him b/c he wouldn’t be there at 54, I think overall we did the right thing — some people would have been happier if we moved back one more time to top of the 2nd, but someone might have taken him (SEA) — i think he was a must have for us.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            He’s only a no-name to those that don’t put any time in looking at prospects. Outside of Khalil Mack, Smith was the most complete 3-4 OLB prospect in the entire draft.

            Also for those that wanna call him a project, you are FAR from reality. Smith is a fluid athlete, very instinctual, intelligent and a natural OLB. He will transition to the pro game much quicker than the likes of a Barr & even much quicker than the man he’ll eventually replace in Trent Cole. Cole was a project. Very undersized (only weighed like 230 coming out), undisciplined against the run game and was a 3rd down rusher for almost 3yrs until he developed into a 3 down DE. That’s a project. Smith isn’t even close to that. He’s a natural fit for what they were looking for.
