MONDAY, 3:14pm: The Eagles have signed offensive lineman Andrew Gardner to their 90-man roster, the Eagles Insider Twitter account reports. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer confirmed the news moments later (via Twitter).
The 6-6, 319 pound tackle was drafted by the Dolphins in the 6th round of the 2009 Draft. Gardner had a successful college career at Georgia Tech, but offseason surgery severely impacted his draft stock.
The 27-year-old has spent the last three seasons with the Texans, appearing in eight games. The Georgia-native has also spent time with the Ravens and the Bengals.
According to a tweet from Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston, Gardner joins seven former Texans in Philadelphia.
