Eagles sign safety Antoine Harris

The Eagles made a small move at camp today, signing safety Antoine Harris and waiving safety Brett Johnson. Harris is a 3 year NFL veteran who has played for the Falcons and spent time with the Titans on their practice squad. For his career, he has played in 35 games and made 21 total tackles. Harris, who has had a number of injuries in the last few years, including issues with his groin and knee, likely doesn't have a great shot at making the team. Although he has NFL experience, there is no way he beats out Nate Allen, Quintin Mickell or Quintin Demps for a roster spot, meaning he's left to battle with rookie Kurt Coleman and possibly Macho Harris, if he isn't converted to corner, for the last safety spot. Working his tail off on special teams might be the only way Antoine Harris cracks the roster.

As for the waived Brett Johnson, he was let go because of a hamstring injury. Johnson was previously claimed off waivers from the Bills but never had a realistic chance of making the team.
