Eagles Sign Andrew Gardner

TUESDAY, 12:33pm: Gardner’s deal with the Eagles is a two-year, minimum salary contract that features a $10K signing bonus, according to Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com.

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.
