PE.com has just announced that the Eagles have cut tight end Rob Myers from the practice squad and signed another tight end to replace him: Martin Rucker out of Mizzou. Rucker was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2008 and spent the preseason with the team before being released in favor of Jaguars practice squad TE Greg Estandia. In four preseason games with Cleveland, Rucker caught three passes for 37 yards and no touchdowns. According to scouting reports, Rucker is mostly a pass-catching tight end with average blocking skills. However, Rucker has been committed to developing his blocking technique and rounding himself out into a complete player, so there is certainly potential there.
The 24 year old Rucker is listed as 6'5" and 240 lbs. He played alongside receiver Jeremy Maclin at Missouri.
