Eagles Sign Offensive Lineman Andrew Gardner

Gardner becomes the billionth ex-Texans player to join the Eagles.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced they have signed offensive lineman Andrew Gardner. The addition of Gardner clearly makes up for the loss of DeSean Jackson.

Gardner, 27 years of age, measures in at 6-7, 304 pounds. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft with the 181st overall pick. Gardner bounced around the league a little bit before spending the last three years in Houston with the Texans. Gardner's addition makes him one of the many ex-Texans players on the Eagles roster joining: Connor Barwin, Donnie Jones, DeMeco Ryans, Bryan Braman, Roc Carmichael, James Casey, and Jeff Maehl.

In four years as a pro, Gardner has never made a career start and he's only appeared in eight games. To be more precise, he's played a mere 49 snaps. The Eagles are likely bringing him in as depth offensive lineman to have for training camp. Gardner is officially listed as an offensive tackle but can also play guard.
