The Eagles signed wide receiver Deon Cain to the practice squad on Monday, releasing linebacker Christian Elliss.

Ellis was making his second stint with Philadelphia.
Elliss was signed by the Vikings as a rookie free agent out of Idaho. A first-team All-Big Sky selection in each of the past two seasons, Elliss saw his 2020 season wiped out by COVID-19.
