The Eagles have officially signed wide receiver Joe Anderson, the team announced today (Twitter link). While the specifics of the deal weren’t revealed, it figures to be a reserve/futures contract worth the minimum.
Anderson, 25, played six games for the Bears last season before being placed on injured reserve in November. While he has yet to record an NFL reception, he returned five kicks for Chicago in 2013, for a total of 82 yards. The 6’1″ receiver was eligible to sign a reserve deal with the Eagles since he didn’t finish the year on an NFL team’s active roster, and will likely compete for a roster spot in Philadelphia this summer.
