The Philadelphia Eagles worked out a total of six free agents on Monday, per NFL insider Adam Caplan. The list includes three tight ends, two defensive backs, and one quarterback.

Former Giants quarterback Logan Thomas is the most notable name in the group. The 2014 fourth round pick joined New York in June before being waived in early September. Thomas has since spent time bouncing on and off the Giants’ practice squad.

It’s worth noting the Eagles currently only have two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster: rookie sensation Carson Wentz and veteran backup Chase Daniel. Former Chiefs passer Aaron Murray signed to Philadelphia’s practice squad earlier this month.

Marcel Jensen, Rory Anderson, and Gannon Sinclair are the three tight ends who worked out for the Birds. None of these players have any significant NFL playing experience. The Eagles currently have three tight ends on their roster: Zach Ertz, Brent Celek, and Trey Burton. The injured Ertz is expected to be healthy enough to return after Philadelphia’s Week 4 bye.

Cornerback Duke Thomas and safety Rolan Milligan also worked out for Philadelphia. Thomas signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent earlier this year while Milligan joined the Dallas Cowboys. Neither player made it through final cuts.

There’s no obvious indication the Eagles are about to make a roster move as the team heads into their bye week. Philadelphia is likely doing due diligence on some available free agents.

It’s at least a little interesting to see the Birds peek at some players who formerly played for their NFC East rivals.
