PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles have agreed to a two-year contract with former Texans linebacker/special teams player Bryan Braman.

“You don’t find many players of Bryan’s size with the ability to run down the field and make plays on special teams,” Chip Kelly said. “It’s an area of the game that we always have our eye on and look to improve. With his size, we also like his potential as a guy who can compete for spot as an outside linebacker.”

“We are always looking for core special teams players and Bryan has made his mark in this league on those units,” Howie Roseman said. “He was a Pro Bowl alternate two years ago. He’s a big, physical player who plays with a tremendous amount of toughness.”

Braman, 26 years old,  was signed as a rookie free agent by Houston in 2011 and has been a standout on the Texans special teams units since entering the league, recording 31 tackles in his first three seasons.
