Yesterday, the Eagles brought back five players who had been released with the final roster cuts to form their 2011 practice squad. Today, they added two more: wide receiver Ronald Johnson and tight end Anthony Hill.
The 5'11" Johnson was a sixth round choice of the 49ers, but didn't manage to earn a spot on their final roster. He brings a good amount of experience returning punts and kicks.
The Texans chose the massive 6'6" Hill with their fourth round pick in the 2009 draft. Despite remaining with the team for two seasons, Hill was only on the active roster for five games, catching a single nine-yard pass. He'll be the first player the Eagles call if either Brent Celek or Clay Harbor get bitten by the injury bug.
Look for the final spot on the Eagles' eight-man practice squad to be filled by DT Cedric Thornton, who was released yesterday to make room for OG Kyle DeVan.
