The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free-agent punter Donnie Jones, a two time All-Pro selection, the team announced Monday.
Jones replaces Mat McBriar, who was released.
"Donnie Jones is a guy that we have admired over the last several years," said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman in a statement. "He has one of the strongest legs in the entire NFL and we're excited we had a chance to sign him. We watched a lot of tape on him and he's coming off a very good season with Houston. We feel he'll add a good element to our special teams units."
