Philadelphia Eagles Sign WR Jared Perry, Release Kevin Jurovich

After the Eagles' morning practice Thursday, there were a pair of wide receivers working out under the watchful eyes of the Eagles' brass.

Kelley Washington, primarily a special teams player throughout his career, and Jared Perry, an undrafted free agent recently cut by the 49ers.

Washington was sent home, presumably with a "We'll be in touch" from Andy Reid and the others, but Perry stuck around and signed a deal with the Birds.

In order to bring him on board, rookie receiver Kevin Jurovich was placed on the waived/injured list and sent home with an undisclosed injury settlement.

Jurovich missed practice with a quad contusion, but wasn't expected to be anything more than a camp body to begin with. Perry, his replacement, isn't expected to contribute much more.

Perry (6'1", 177) was a teammate of Jeremy Maclin at Mizzou, and in 27 starts recorded 137 receptions, 1,844 yards, and 13 touchdowns.

 

In other Eagles news...

Earlier in the day, the Birds placed safety Brett Johnson on the waived/injured list and signed veteran safety Antoine Harris, who spent his last three seasons in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons and the year before that with the Tennesee Titans.

Johnson was originally and undrafted rookie signed by the Buffalo Bills.

 

In potentially very upsetting news...

Also, Alex Hall was picked up by the New York Giants off the waiver wire a day after being released by the Eagles. If he has any sort of impact for them at all, I think I'll pull my hair out.

According to Adam Caplan, via Twitter, the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals also put in a claim on Hall.

For Hall's sake, he probably would have been better off going back to a 3-4 scheme rather than trying to play with his hand on the ground in a 4-3 system.
