Philadelphia Eagles Finalize Practice Squad

The Eagles have added three more players, finalizing their practice squad for the start of the 2011 season. On Sunday they had signed five players, WR Chad Hall, G Dallas Reynolds, FB Stanley Havili, LB Greg Lloyd, and DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, all of whom were previously with the team in training camp. Today, they re-signed Cedric Thornton, who had been cut yesterday to make room for Kyle DeVan.

The two final members of the practice squad come from outside of the organization, TE Anthony Hill and WR Ronald Johnson. Hill was originally a fourth round pick of the Texans in 2009. He’s a massive guy at 6-6, 277 lbs, but has only appeared in five games over two seasons. He’s recorded just one catch. Given his size and athleticism, you have to wonder whether the Eagles might see him as a possible tackle, much like like Jason Peters, who was also converted from TE.

The 49ers chose Ronald Johnson with a 6th round pick in this years’ draft out of USC. With the Trojans, Johnson was a standout kick and punt return man. With the Eagles being thin in that area, he’s likely here for insurance.
