The Eagles on Thursday released their rookie camp roster with a surprising, non-rookie name on it: Chris Gocong.

Drafted in the third round out of Cal Poly in 2006, Gocong spent three seasons with the Eagles before being traded, along with Sheldon Brown, to the Cleveland Browns in 2010.

Gocong registered more than 70 tackles in each of the next two seasons, but missed the entire 2012 campaign with an Achilles injury.

In addition to Gocong, 41 others players on are on the roster including the Eagles' eight 2013 draft picks; nine rookie free agents; and a host of tryout players, none of whom counts against the team's 90-man roster.

Included in the list of tryouts are former Temple Owls Montel Harris (RB), Marcus Green (LB) and Devin Tyler (OL).

In addition, Zach Ertz, Earl Wolff, Joe Kruger, Jordan Poyer and David King -- all draft picks -- were signed on Thursday.
