The Philadelphia Eagles have filled out their 10-man practice squad with the signing of wide receiver Cobi Hamilton.

Hamilton, 23, measures in at 6-2, 212. He was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft (No. 197 overall). Hamilton spent his entire rookie season on the Bengals' practice squad.

Hamilton played for four years at the University of Arkansas and finished with 175 receptions for 2854 yards (16.3 average) and 18 touchdowns in 51 career games played. Here's a look at Hamilton's spider graph via Mockdraftable:

The Eagles had room for Hamilton due to the slew of roster moves they made on Tuesday night. Former practice squad players offensive tackle Kevin Graf and linebacker Emmanuel Acho were signed to the active 53-man roster in the wake of Evan Mathis (designated to return) and Allen Barbre being placed on injured reserve.

The Eagles filled the two open practice squad spots by signing offensive tackle Tyler Hoover and linebacker Brandon Hepburn, but not before also releasing practice squad linebacker Colton Underwood. Hamilton's addition finalizes the Eagles practice squad at the 10-man limit.

Philadelphia now employs three wide receivers on their practice squad: Hamilton, Will Murphy, and Quron Pratt. Not to mention the six wide receivers already on the active roster: Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, Jordan Matthews, Brad Smith, Josh Huff, and Jeff Maehl. That's a total of nine wide receivers.

Here's what the Eagles' practice squad looks like now:

QB G.J. Kinne
LB Brandon Hepburn
OL Tyler Hoover
RB Matthew Tucker
S Ed Reynolds II
WR Will Murphy
NT Wade Keliikipi
WR Quron Pratt
G/C Josh Andrews
WR Cobi Hamilton
