LOGAN, Utah - Former Utah State football standout Rob Myers has signed a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles and is expected to be in action during the Eagles' preseason game on Thursday night against the New England Patriots.
Myers, a tight end, originally signed a free agent deal with the New York Jets in April, but was released prior to their training camp.
As a junior in 2007, Myers had 21 receptions for 320 yards with three touchdowns, and led the nation's tight ends with 15.2 yards per catch. His season was highlighted by being named the John Mackey National Tight End of the Week on Nov. 21, 2007 for his career-best outing of 117 yards on four catches with two TD's in USU's win at New Mexico State. However, Myers missed his senior season of 2008 with a preseason injury. Myers attended the NFL Combine in February, but his action was limited due to his injury rehab.
Myers will be uniting with former Aggie wide receiver Kevin Curtis, who is entering his third season with the Eagles and his seventh in the NFL.
Curtis, Myers and the Eagles will be taking on the Patriots on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 5:30 p.m. MT. The game will only be telecast on local Philadelphia television. Next Thursday, Aug. 20, the Eagles will face the Indianapolis Colts in a nationally televised game on Fox. Check local listings for channel information.
Myers' signing makes seven former Aggies on NFL rosters, joining Jarrett Bush (CB, Green Bay), Chris Cooley (TE, Washington), Kevin Curtis (WR, Philadelphia), De'von Hall (S, Minnesota), Shawn Murphy (OG, Miami) and Donald Penn (OT, Tampa Bay).
