The Eagles made several roster transfers on Tuesday, the day before their first training camp practice of the summer.

As reported by the campers, the Eagles signed defensive tackle Kobe Smith. They also waived receiver Josh Hammond and defensive tackle Noah Ellis. Elliss was waived with a non-football injury designation.

With these moves, the Eagles have 89 players. But DE Matt Leo still has this international exemption, so there are two vacancies on the list.

Smith, 24, came out of South Carolina without a draft in 2020 and spent time with the Titans and Pirates. Smith signed with the Titans after he went without drafting and spent his first training camp in Tennessee. He joined Bucs in October of 2020 and has spent some time on the coaching staff ever since.

During his time in South Carolina, Smith had 84 tackles, two kisses and 7 tackles to lose in 35 games.

After this signing, the Eagles have eight defensive tackles on their roster. In addition to Smith, they have Fletcher CoxAnd the Javon HargraveJordan Davis Milton WilliamsAnd the Marlon TuipolotoAnd the Marvin Wilson And the reneel ren.

Ellis signed with the Eagles as a UDFA out of Idaho but was injured and did not participate in the OTAs. Any injury that occurred prior to the player’s entry into the NFL is considered by the league to be a non-football related injury. Hammond has been with the Eagles since May 17, when they demanded a waiver of waivers for him.

The Eagles have their first training camp at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
