Eagles Sign FB Schmitt, Promote TE Mills

According to the Eagles' official Twitter feed, the team has just signed former Seattle Seahawks fullback Owen Schmitt to the active roster. Coming with that move, tight end Garrett Mills was promoted to the active roster, giving the Eagles a third tight end and an emergency backup fullback (because, let's face it, Eldra Buckley just didn't cut it). Taking Mills' place on the eight-man practice squad will be a familiar face: OL Fenuki Tupou. This gives the Eagles three offensive linemen on the practice squad: Tupou, A.Q. Shipley, and Dallas Reynolds. Will the Eagles keep all three? Likely. Since the team is now a man down at center, Shipley could be one "tweak" away from becoming a part of the active roster.

As expected, Leonard Weaver and Jamaal Jackson were placed on injured reserve, officially ending their 2010 season.
