PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles signed former New York Giants quarterback Kyle Lauletta to their practice squad along with eight other players.

Wide receivers Greg Ward and Marcus Green, tight ends Alex Ellis and Josh Perkins, defensive tackle Bruce Hector, guard Sua Opeta, running back Boston Scott, and linebacker Alex Singleton also were added to the 10-man squad Sunday, leaving one spot available.

Lauletta was drafted in the fourth round out of Richmond in 2018. He threw only five passes as a rookie, including one interception. Lauletta played well in the preseason, tossing four touchdowns, no picks and posting a 103.8 passer rating. He'll learn behind Carson Wentz, Josh McCown and Nate Sudfeld.
