The Philadelphia Eagles added depth to their wide receiver ranks on Monday when they acquired Jeff Maehl from the Houston Texans in exchange for offensive lineman Nate Menkin.
Maehl is no stranger to new Eagles coach Chip Kelly.
The 24-year-old Maehl played for Kelly at Oregon, where he was a first-team All-Pac 10 player as a senior when he compiled 77 receptions for 1,076 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns in 2010. His 24 career touchdowns at Oregon tied the school's all-time record.
Maehl spent the past two seasons on the Texans practice squad after being undrafted in 2011. He played in three games but does not have a reception.
Menkin returns to the Texans. The Eagles claimed him off waivers before the beginning of the 2012 season after he was released during the Texans' final roster cutdown.
