Philadelphia Eagles Sign TE Derek Carrier To Practice Squad, Release Chase Ford

The Eagles major move of the day was to add WR Mardy Gilyard to their roster and cutting last year's 2nd round pick Jaiquwan Jarrett to make room. However, they did complete other minor move release TE Chase Ford from the practice squad and adding another TE, Derek Carrier.

This is from the Eagles.

Carrier (6-4, 238) originally signed with the Oakland Raiders as a rookie free agent following the 2012 draft after playing collegiately at Beloit College in Wisconsin, where he set school records with 189 receptions for 3,111 yards and 29 touchdowns. He was released as part of the Raiders final roster cut down. Carrier also played two years of basketball at Beloit, starting 21 games and averaging 8.3 points per game. He attended Edgerton High School in Wisconsin.
