The Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly expected to re-sign veteran quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan. That's right, baby, MBT is back.

Bethel-Thompson, who turns 28 in August, originally signed with the Eagles back in February. He spent time with the team before being cut prior to the start of Philadelphia's OTA practices in mid-May.

MBT is nothing more than a camp arm for the Birds. The Eagles are obviously already set at quarterback with the presence of Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, and Carson Wentz.

With MBT expected to be in the fold, the Eagles' roster is now (unofficially) set at the 90-man offseason limit. Earlier this weekend, it was reported that the Eagles will sign former Villanova linebacker Don Cherry and former Baltimore Ravens safety Nick Perry. The Eagles have not officially confirmed any of these signings yet but it should only be a matter of time.

Quarterbacks, rookies, and select veterans are scheduled to report for Eagles training camp today. The rest of the team is scheduled to show up by Wednesday, July 27 before the first full practice starts on Thursday, July 28 at 3:30 PM ET.
