The Eagles on Thursday signed preseason and training camp standout Marken Michel to their practice squad.
Michel, 26, had an impressive summer in Philadelphia and was a strong contender to make the initial 53-man roster but was released at final cuts. The Eagles kept just five receivers out of training camp.
The Eagles reportedly had Michel in for a workout earlier this week.
During the preseason, Michel had four catches for 117 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown on a deep post against the Titans from Nate Sudfeld.

Marken Michel went undrafted out of UMass in 2016. He spent one summer with the Vikings and then carved out a career in the Canadian Football League for two years. He was a teammate of Eagles linebacker Alex Singleton on the Calgary Stampeders when the Stampeders won the 2018 Grey Cup.
With this move to sign Michel (5-11, 190), the Eagles' practice squad is now at capacity with 10 members and three of them are receivers. They have just four receivers on the 53-man roster.
The Eagles also have Robert Davis (6-3, 210) and Marcus Green (5-8, 191) on the practice squad.
