Roster Move: #Eagles have signed DT Gabe Wright to a one-year contract.

Wright, 24-years old, was drafted by the Detroit Lions with a fourth round pick in the 2015 draft. He did not have much of a career in Detroit as he was waived before the 2016 season. After Detroit, he spent last year bouncing up and down on the Browns roster.
The Eagles opened up a roster spot last week when they cut Steven Daniels, so that is why Wright has been signed. The Eagles want more depth at defensive tackle going into training camp. The likelihood of Wright making the team are very slim, this is just a depth move for training camp.
