Eagles Set Practice Squad

After looking at the cuts made across the NFL, the Eagles came up with seven players to add to their practice squad.

The Philadelphia Eagles were working on Labor Day. They signed LB Torrance Daniels, TE Tim Day, S Dustin Fox, WR Michael Gasperson, C Jasper Harvey, WR Bill Sampy, and FB Zach Tuiasosopo to the practice squad.

Daniels, Gasperson and Sampy were all members of the Eagles during the 2006 preseason, but were cut over the weekend when the roster was narrowed to 53 players.

Day (6-4, 265) was signed as a rookie free agent by the Chicago Bears in 2006 after catching 86 passes for 1,008 yards and 13 touchdowns in 48 games for Oregon.

Fox (5-10, 190) was a third round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 2005, but spent his entire rookie season on the Injured Reserve list with a broken arm. Fox posted 217 tackles, seven interceptions and six forced fumbles during a four-year career at Ohio State.

Harvey (6-3, 305) was signed as a rookie free agent from San Diego State in 2006 by the Washington Redskins.

Tuiasosopo (6-2, 245) was originally signed as a rookie free agent by Pittsburgh in 2005 and spent time on both the Steelers and Oakland Raiders practice squad that year. His older brother, Marques, is a quarterback with the Oakland Raiders and his father, Manu, was a defensive lineman for Seattle and San Francisco. Zach began his college career at Washington as a linebacker before converting to fullback in 2002.
