The Eagles on Wednesday signed defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, their third-round draft pick. He was chosen 86th overall out of Washington and signed a four-year contract.
Te'o-Nesheim finished his college career with 30 sacks, a Washington record. He is part of a remade defensive- end grouping that includes Pro Bowler Trent Cole, Juqua Parker, first-round pick Brandon Graham, and Darryl Tapp, acquired in an off-season trade with Seattle.
Coach Andy Reid has praised Te'o-Nesheim's intelligence and flexibility. On some nickel packages in recent practices, the smallish (for a defensive end) rookie was playing on the interior of the line.
