The Eagles announced a pair of minor signings today with LB Ryan Rau and DE Frank Trotter.

Rau is 6-1, 230 and comes from Portland State where is the school's all time leader in games played. He led the team in tackles in each of his last three seasons.

Trotter, 6-2, 275, was a run stopping DE at Memphis where he ranks 3rd on their all time list in tackles for a loss. He was originally signed as a UDFA by the Jaguars, but was cut a little over a month ago.

Minor signings for sure, but as we always say, you never know when one of these guys might pop up and become the next Quintin Mikell. You'll probably never hear their names again, but anything is possible...
