Eagles sign 7 Rookie Free Agents

The draft might be over, but the Eagles are continuing to add rookies to their roster through free agency. These are players that went undrafted that the Eagles are inviting to training camp, few of them have much of a chance of making the team, some will end up on the practice squad:

Kyle Arrington, CB, Hofstra
--Smallish corner, 2 interceptions in college career.

Jed Collins, FB, Washington State
--Good hands out of the backfield (80 catches in college), could be competition for Jason David and Dan Klecko for the starting fullback spot.

Franklin Dunbar, OT, Middle Tennessee State
--6 foot 4, 327 pounds, was a three-year starter.

Terrell Golden, WR, Penn State
--Fast receiver with decent hands, put up mediocre numbers at PSU.

Frantz Hardy, WR, Nebraska
--Had a few big games in college, but failed to produce consistently

Shaheer McBride, WR, Delaware State
--Four year starter at small school holds Delaware State records for receptions and yards.

Justin Roland, LB, Kansas State
--Decently sized LB recorded 70 tackles last year.

None of those names are instantly recognizable nor are they college stars but it looks like the Eagles are looking to possibly add some depth to their receiving corps with these signings. Of course, many of them will be amongst the first cuts at training camp this summer.
