The Philadelphia Eagles signed defensive tackle Bruce Hector to their practice squad, according to an official announcement from the team.
This news was very much expected. The Eagles waived Hector earlier this week in order to call up fellow defensive tackle Treyvon Hester from the practice squad.
It’s clear the Eagles feel like the 26-year-old Hester is more ready to contribute immediately than the 23-year-old undrafted rookie free agent Hector. Hector only played in 20 snaps through the first four games of the season.
Just because the Eagles sent Hector down doesn’t mean they don’t like his potential. Philadelphia gave him the most guaranteed money out of all their undrafted rookie signings following the 2018 NFL Draft. Hector is clearly more of a developmental player for Philly.
Here’s an updated look at the Eagles’ 10-player practice squad:
DT Bruce Hector
LB Kyle Wilson
OL Josh Andrews
TE Billy Brown
LB Asantay Brown
S Tre Sullivan
WR Braxton Miller
