Eagles Cut Burgess, Sign Two Others
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – As the Eagles ready for Sunday’s regular season finale against the Cowboys, they made a couple of roster moves on Thursday.
They signed DT Jeremy Clark to a three-year deal. This is Clark’s second go-around with the Birds, he spent the 2007 season on their practice squad after being signed as a rookie free agent. Since then he has spent time with the New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins.
Clark is an Alabama product.
Defensive end Derrick Burgess’ return to Philadelphia was short-lived. He was cut on Thursday and to replace him on the roster, the Eagles have signed veteran defensive end Bobby McCray.
McCray actually was a member of last season’s New Orleans Saints team that won the Super Bowl, but he was cut just before the start of the regular season in 2010. McCray has 29.5 career sacks in 93 NFL games. He was originally drafted by Jacksonville in 2004.
Burgess played in just one game as an Eagle, Tuesday night’s loss to the Vikings.
