And on the second day of 2014 NFL free agency, the Eagles continued to rebuild their special teams unit. Earlier in the day, they signed safety/special teams ace Chris Margaros. Now, the Eagles have announced the signing of linebacker/special teams contributor Bryan Braman. It's a 2-year deal for Braman worth up to $3.15 million with only $1 million guaranteed.

Braman, 26, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Houston Texans in 2011. He stands tall at 6-5, 251 lbs. Some Braman special teams stats:

2011: 5 tackles (4th on team) 2 assists
2012: 14 tackles (1st), 2 assists, 2 blocked punts
2013: 8 tackles (2nd)

Braman has an interesting background. He left the West Texas A&M football team in college due to pleading guilty to manufacturing psilocybin, which is a hallucinogen found in mushrooms. He and his family don't have teeth:  "My whole family's kind of toothless. My dad, he doesn't have no tooth." His grandfather is reportedly humongous (7-4, 460 lbs!?!). Oh, and he used to be an Abercrombie & Fitch model.

Most importantly, though, Braman is tough. Look at him make this tackle despite not having his helmet on:


UPDATE: BGN's Mike Kaye spoke with Braman's former college teammate, Kyle Van Voris, on who he is as a player:
