As noted earlier, the Philadelphia Eagles brought in a big group of free agents to work out at the NovaCare Complex on Monday. It turns out that the team hosted a total of eight players. In addition to former New York Giants wide receiver Corey Washington, here are the remaining seven:

Some of the names on this list include former Eagles players. Linebackers DeWalt-Ondijo and Hepburn were both on Philadelphia's roster this offseason before getting hurt and being released with injury settlements. Mihalik, a 6-8 defensive end, was the Eagles' selection seventh round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. Here's some more information on the players who haven't spent time with the Eagles before:
Toby Johnson - Former Jaguars defensive lineman. 6-3, 312 pounds and 24 years old.
Trovon Reed - Undrafted free agent rookie cornerback who signed with the Seattle Seahawks. 6-0, 190 pounds and 24 years old.
Brandian Ross - The 26-year-old Ross has spent time with three teams since entering the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2011. Ross has played in 44 games in his career and started 24. The Eagles could be looking to sign a depth safety since Jerome Couplin could be headed to injured reserve soon, so adding Ross might make some sense.
