The Eagles have added some veteran offensive line depth.

The club announced the signing of Texans offensive tackle Andrew Gardner on Monday. Gardner (6-6, 308) appeared in three games for Houston in 2013 and was listed as the club’s top backup right tackle.

A sixth-round pick of the Dolphins in 2009, Gardner has played in eight NFL regular season games. In addition to his time with Houston and Miami, Gardner has had stints with Baltimore, Minnesota and Cincinnati.

Gardner, who turns 28 on Friday, played collegiately at Georgia Tech.
