The Eagles have added some special teams coverage punch.
The club said Wednesday it had reached a two-year deal with Texans outside linebacker Bryan Braman, who was not tendered by Houston as a restricted free agent.
Braman (6-5, 241) played in 44 regular season games for Houston and was among the club’s leaders in special teams tackles in 2013.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who cited Braman’s agent, Braman received a $3.15 million contract with $1 million in guarantees.
“You don’t find many players of Bryan’s size with the ability to run down the field and make plays on special teams,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said in a team-issued statement on Wednesday. “It’s an area of the game that we always have our eye on and look to improve. With his size, we also like his potential as a guy who can compete for spot as an outside linebacker.”
