The Eagles signed defensive tackle John Gill and released running back Jeremy Stewart.
Gill, 25, has played for the Lions and Colts since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Northwestern in 2009.
Stewart signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2012 draft. The Stanford product was competing mostly at fullback. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said last week that the Eagles could enter the season without a fullback on the 53-man roster.
