The Eagles have signed veteran offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus and wide receiver Dom Williams to reserve/futures deals, the team announced. 

LeRibeus, 27, brings with him some veteran experience but did not play in the 2016 season after Washington released him in early September. 

He was once a third-round pick out of SMU in 2012 and has played in 28 games in his career with 12 starts. Eleven of those starts came in 2015, when he played all 16 games. 

LeRibeus didn't play at all in 2013 after showing up to training camp out of shape. That August, his coaches weren't shy about voicing their displeasure for his offseason conditioning.

While primarily a center, LeRibeus has also played some guard during his short NFL career and that's how the Eagles list him. 

Williams went undrafted out of Washington State and was signed by the Chargers. He spent last season on San Diego's practice squad. 

At Washington State, Williams finished his career second in school history in receiving yards (2,889) and touchdown catches (30) and third in receptions (192). He played there from 2012-15. 

Nigel Bradham's trial date for battery charge moved to April

Nigel Bradham's trial date for battery charge moved to April

Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was originally scheduled to be in court at 9:30 a.m. in Miami on Tuesday for the beginning of his trial on a felony battery charge. 

Now, that trial won't be until April. 

A motion for continuance was filed and the new trial date is set for April 10, according to the Miami-Dade State State Attorney's Office. Eagles OTAs will begin in May. 

The felony charge stems from a July 25 incident in Miami, when the 6-2, 241-pound Bradham allegedly assaulted at hotel employee. The altercation reportedly arose from the length of time in took 50-year-old hotel employee Jean Courois to bring Bradham's group their beach umbrella. 

Bradham pled not guilty and has said he "most definitely" expects his name to be cleared from this incident.

This was the first of two arrests for Bradham since July. He was arrested coming home from Miami from the bye week after he tried to pass through airport security with a loaded gun in his backpack. 

After the second arrest, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz famously said, "You do dumbass things, pretty soon, you’re going to be labeled as a dumbass." 

Bradham, 27, signed a two-year deal to join the Eagles last offseason and proved to be a good investment on the field. He played 97 percent of the defense's snaps and played at a high level as the team's starting SAM linebacker. He will have a base salary of $3.5 million this year, with a cap hit of $4.25 million. 

Report: Eagles considering moving on from Jason Kelce

Report: Eagles considering moving on from Jason Kelce

According to a report, Jason Kelce might have already played his final game in an Eagles uniform. 

The team is considering "moving on" from the veteran center by way of trade or outright release, according to PhillyVoice's Jimmy Kempski.

Kelce, 29, has a cap hit of $6.2 million in 2017 and the Eagles could save $3.8 million by cutting him after a disappointing 2016 season. He's still under contract through the 2020 season, but the Eagles could elect to move on without serious salary cap implications. 

In November, Kelce gave a very honest assessment of his play: “I think that I quite frankly need to do a better job. That’s what it comes down to. I love playing in this city, I love playing in this organization, and if I’m going to keep doing that, I have to do a better job.”

The obvious choice to replace Kelce, if the Eagles decide to go this way, would be 2016 rookie Isaac Seumalo. The third-round pick played six positions last year but did not play a single snap at center, which might be his most natural spot. 

Seumalo didn't play at center because for the second straight season, Kelce didn't miss a single snap. He played all 1,133 snaps in 2016 and hasn't missed a play in the last 39 games. Kelce was a sixth-round pick by the Eagles out of Cincinnati in 2011.
