Eagles sign CB Brandon Hughes

As expected, the Eagles have officially placed Ellis Hobbs on IR with a neck injury. To fill his roster spot, the Eagles have signed CB Brandon Hughes off the Giants practice squad. The signing allows the Eagles to keep 6 corners on the roster.

Hughes, a former 5th round pick by the Chargers in 2009, has never played in an NFL game. He played his college ball at Oregon State and spent all of last season on IR after suffering a knee injury in the preseason. While I wouldn't expect Hughes to see any action on the field, he could be a valuable source of information from the coaching staff because he will know plenty about the Giants defensive scheme. That should definitely come in handy when the two teams meet again in December.
