The Eagles added some veteran depth on their offensive line Tuesday by signing former New York Giants tackle Will Beatty.

They made room for him on the 53-man roster by waiving tackle Taylor Hart.

Beatty, 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds, played in 88 games for the Giants from 2009 to 2016. The 32-year-old was the Giants’ second-round draft pick in 2009. He started 63 games at left tackle for the Giants, but missed the entire 2015 season with a torn rotator cuff and appeared in only six games last season.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai is expected to remain the Eagles’ left tackle in place of injured Jason Peters with Beatty, who won a Super Bowl while with the Giants, serving as a backup.

Beatty is the second veteran free agent to join the Eagles in the last week, following linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.

Hart had just rejoined the Eagles two weeks ago after Peters suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee against Washington on Oct. 23.

Hart, a former defensive end, switched to offensive tackle during training camp this season and was released in September.
