Eagles Sign Veteran Offensive Tackle Will Beatty

Seeking help for the team's offensive line, the Philadelphia Eagles have apparently reached an agreement on a one-year deal with former New York Giants offensive tackle Will Beatty, according to a report from ESPN.

Beatty, 32, adds a veteran presence as a reserve along an offensive line that previously lost All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters for the season with a torn ACL and MCL back in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins. He missed the entire 2015 season with a torn pec.

The move adds experienced depth at a vital position for the Birds.

The Eagles previously showed interest in Beatty last season when right tackle Lane Johnson was suspended 10 games for violating the NFL's Performance Enhancing Drug policy.

A former second round draft pick of the Giants in 2009, Beatty was the primary left tackle protecting quarterback quarterback Eli Manning for the last five seasons.

The Eagles were in the market for an offensive lineman after left tackle Jason Peters tore his ACL and MCL on October 23 against Washington, ending his season. He's played 88 career games with 63 starts.

Isaac Seumalo, who spent all offseason working as a guard, has served as Philly's swing tackle the past two games, and the team signed Hart for insurance.

Beatty is unlikely to challenge Vaitai for a starting spot, but he could unseat Seumalo as the active backup tackle on game days.
