According to the team itself, the Philadelphia Eagles have officially signed veteran WR/KR/QB Brad Smith and released wide receiver B.J. Cunningham. Smith's signing was reported earlier in the day, but no corresponding move was announced until now.
Cunningham was originally signed to the Eagles practice squad after being cut by the Dolphins in September 2012. He spent the whole season on the practice squad and entered 2013 training camp with the team. Then, early in camp, he suffered a foot injury. That caused him to miss time before ultimately being released with an injury settlement in early August. The Eagles brought Cunningham back to the team on October 14th to serve as depth. It's possible the team will look to add him to their practice squad, since he is still eligible.
Smith's addition will potentially help the Eagles in the return game. Eagles diminutive WR Damaris Johnson has seemingly fallen out of favor as a returner, not to mention he has been dealing with an ankle injury.
Smith will wear #16. See this link for more information on the Eagles' newest addition to the roster.
