The Eagles signed offensive lineman Andrew Gardner to their 90-man roster on Monday.

The 6-foot-6, 309-pound Gardner last played for the Texans. He played in six games in three seasons for Houston. His only other NFL game came as a rookie for the Dolphins in 2009. Gardner, 27, was drafted out of Georgia Tech by Miami in the sixth round.

Gardner was released by the Dolphins before the 2010 season. He spent time with the Ravens, Vikings and Bengals before the Texans signed him in August 2011.

The Eagles had not added to their offensive line since free agency opened on Aug. 11. .

Gardner joins Allen Barbre, Matt Tobin, Dennis Kelly and Michael Bamiro as big-bodied reserve linemen who can play either tackle or guard.
