Eagles sign lineman Tanner Hawkinson off 49ers practice squad


The Eagles have had offensive line problems all season, and they did something Tuesday to address the issue.

Sort of.

The team announced they signed offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson from the 49ers practice squad. They released center/guard Julian Vandervelde (their personal Josh Johnson) to make the roster spot.

Hawkinson entered the league as a fifth-round pick of the Bengals in 2013, but he was released in final cuts this year. The 49ers then signed him to the practice squad.
