The Eagles announced the signing of defensive end Eddie McClam on Saturday.

McClam will take part in Saturday’s practice, the club said. He spent last summer with the Lions, who waived him in August.

An Old Dominion product, McClam notched 42 tackles as a senior in 2011. He blocked seven kicks in his collegiate career, according to the school.

McClam (6-5, 265) gives the Eagles eight defensive ends on the roster.
