Eagles sign LB Rashad Jeanty

The Eagles added another defensive player today, signing LB Rashad Jeanty to a one year contract. Jeanty, who played in 53 career games with the Bengals from 2006 to 2009, was out of the NFL last year after suffering a broken fibula on the opening kickoff of a 2009 Wild Card game.

If Jeanty, who is 27, has fully recovered from his injury, he could be a good depth addition to the linebacking group, where he fits in at the SAM position. Where Jeanty may be even more valuable is on special teams and as a team leader, two roles he filled for the Bengals during his tenure there.
