The Eagles have begun to fill out their 8 man practice squad with some familiar names. WR Marvin McNutt, LB Ryan Rau, TE Chase Ford and FB Emil Igwenagu were all with the Eagles in preseason and have been brought back to the practice squad.

The one new name so far is Chase Beeler, who was Andrew Luck's center at Stanford and was signed as a UDFA last season by the 49ers. He's very much in the mold of a Howard Mudd center in that he's not a big guy, but very quick and athletic. Here's what ESPN had to say about him.

Beeler is an undersized center with good short-area quickness, agility and body control but marginal strength and power. He spent his rookie season on the 49ers practice squad and needs more exposure to be evaluated.

These moves mean they've added 5 players, so there's still room for 3 more.
