Eagles sign an offensive lineman and make some other roster moves

The Eagles made some changes.

The Philadelphia Eagles made a few roster moves on Monday afternoon. The team signed offensive lineman Barrett Jones away from the Chicago Bears' practice squad. Jones was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Jones played for Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland at Alabama. He's also a former teammate of current Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford, as evidenced in the picture above. Jones has experience at center and guard.

In order to make room for Jones, the Eagles released ... you guessed it ... Julian Vandervelde. This marks the trillionth (rough estimate) time the Eagles have released him.

Along with these changes to the main roster, the Eagles made two additions to their practice squad. The team signed inside linebacker Brandon Hepburn and cornerback Mike Lee to the scout team. Hepburn spent time on Philadelphia's practice squad last year. Lee is a new addition to the team. He's a rookie undrafted free agent who spent some time on the Atlanta Falcons' offseason roster.

Here's a reminder of what Philadelphia's 10-man practice squad looks like now:

OL Brett Boyko
OL Malcolm Bunche
CB Randall Evans
LB Brandon Hepburn
WR Freddie Martino
QB Stephen Morris
CB Mike Lee
TE Chris Pantale
DE Travis Raciti
LB Deontae Skinner
