All eight practice squad spots are now accounted for, as the Eagles signed defensive end Brandon Bair on Wednesday morning.
The 6-6, 285-pound Bair played college ball at (you guessed it) the University of Oregon, posting 106 tackles (25.5 for a loss) and five sacks over four seasons in Eugene. He spent some time with the Chiefs and Raiders after going undrafted in 2011 but has not appeared in an NFL game.
Dennis Dixon has practice squad eligibility remaining but the Eagles decided to go in a different direction for now since they are carrying three quarterbacks on the roster.
Linebacker Emmanuel Acho, who originally made the 53-man before being released in favor of Najee Goode, cleared waivers. He could be an option down the road if he stays on the market.
Here is how the rest of the practice squad looks:
The Eagles added another running back to their roster today, claiming William Powell (5-9, 207) off waivers.
Powell, 25, spent last year with the Cardinals, carrying 59 times for 216 yards (3.7 YPC) behind a horrible offensive line. He also had 19 catches for 132 yards.
“The overall yards per carry wasn’t great,” said GM Howie Roseman. “But he was making a lot of yards on his own.”
