Eagles sign third-round pick

Posted: June 17, 2010

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.

The deal leaves Graham, second-round pick Nate Allen, and fifth-rounder Riley Cooper as the Eagles' only unsigned draft picks.
