The Eagles have signed Andrew Brewer, a 6'3 WR from Northwestern.
To make room for Brewer the Eagles waived WR Ron Johnson, who suffered a fractured ankle yesterday during practice.
Here is a portion of the press release from the Eagles.
The Tulsa, OK, native was originally recruited to Northwestern as a quarterback, but was converted to wide receiver and ended up catching 76 passes for 1,118 yards and nine touchdowns. As a senior in 2009, he set a school single-season record with 16.2 yards per catch average as he hauled in 57 passes from current Eagles QB Mike Kafka for 925 yards and nine scores.
Brewer can not practice until Friday.
