As it turns out, the Eagles added two player yesterday. In addition to TE Tony Curtis, they also signed OLB Curtis Gatewood formerly of the Redskins, Chiefs, & Lions. Gatewood was a college DE that was converted to linebacker.
Gatewood, an outside linebacker, originally signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt in 2008. After spending several weeks on the Redskins practice squad, he was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs and appeared in six games, recording four tackles on special teams. Gatewood played defensive end at Vanderbilt, where he was teammates with Eagles safety Reshard Langford. He spent part of the 2009 training camp with the Detroit Lions.
To make room the Eagles released QB Adam DiMichele and WR Shaheer McBride.
