The Philadelphia Eagles filled out their eight-player practice squad Monday by signing offensive lineman Matt Reynolds.
Reynolds is the younger brother of Eagles center Dallas Reynolds, who is on the active roster this season after spending three years on the team’s practice squad.
Matt Reynolds, 6-foot-6 and 305 pounds, signed with Carolina as an undrafted free agent from Brigham Young University but was released by the Panthers last week.
The Eagles’ practice squad consists of center Chase Beeler, wide receiver B.J. Cunningham, tight end Chase Ford, fullback Emil Igwenagu, wide receiver Marvin McNutt, linebacker Ryan Rau, Reynolds and defensive tackle Frank Trotter.
In other Monday news, Eagles defensive end Jason Babin participated in the team’s brief practice for the first time since suffering a strained right calf on July 31 during training camp at Lehigh University.
Babin led the Eagles with 18 sacks last season while making the Pro Bowl.
“We watched tape — practice tape and preseason tape — and you kind of get goose bumps,” Babin said in quotes provided by the team. “People are going to be really excited when we get out there and it counts.”
The Eagles open the regular season Sunday at Cleveland.
