The Eagles signed offensive lineman Nathan Menkin after he was released by the Texans on Friday, the team announced Saturday.
Menkin (6-foot-4, 296 pounds) is listed as a tackle and a guard. Houston signed Menkin as an undrafted rookie free agent after he played college football at Mary Hardin-Baylor in Texas. He was an AFCA all-American tackle as a senior.
To make room for Menkin on the 53-man roster, the Eagles released Trevard Lindley. The cornerback surprised many by making the squad, but it did not last for very long. Last year, Lindley survived final cutdown day, but he was waived a few days later when the Eagles re-signed cornerback Joselio Hanson. He spent all of 2011 out of the NFL, but he impressed coaches with his play during training camp and the preseason.
