Eagles Sign DT Reagor

The Philadelphia Eagles basically pulled off a trade late Tuesday night. Shawn Barber signed with the Houston Texans and the Eagles replaced him immediately with former Colts DT Montae Reagor.

On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the signing of free agent defensive tackle Montae Reagor to a three-year contract. Reagor's deal guarantees him $2 million and may pay him up to $8.25 million through the 2009 season.

The 6' 3", 285 pound Reagor spent the last four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and notched 112 tackles and 12 sacks in 45 starts. He also started six post-season games for Indianapolis. Reagor had his best seasons in 2004 and 2005 when he ranked fourth among all NFL defensive tackles with 10.5 sacks and was third in the NFL in quarterback pressures with 51 over that period.

Reagor's 2006 season was off to a good start until he was in a car accident prior to a game against Washington on October 22nd. He spent the next six games on the inactive list and landed on the non-football injury list late in the season and never returned to action for Indianapolis.

Reagor's NFL career started in Denver after the Broncos drafted him in the second round of the 1999 Draft with the 58th overall pick. Reagor recorded 50 tackles and 4 sacks in 45 games with Denver.

The arrival of Reagor in Philadelphia eases the exit of Shawn Barber who signed a three-year deal with the Texans, guaranteeing him $2.2 million and a possible $5 million over the life of the deal.
