Eagles add CB Fontenot to practice squad

The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that they have signed CB Therrian Fontenot to the practice squad.

Fontenot (5-10, 185) was initially signed as a rookie free agent by Buffalo following the 2005 draft, but was released as part of the team’s roster cutdown on August 30 that year. He was signed to Green Bay’s practice squad a week later, where he remained until being promoted to their 53-man roster on 12/30/05. He saw action in Green Bay’s regular season finale.

Fontenot was traded during the 2006 offseason from Green Bay to Cleveland, where he was subsequently signed to their practice squad. He remained on the Brown’s practice squad until being promoted to their active roster on 12/27/06 and played in their regular season finale at Houston three days later. Cleveland later waived Fontenot on 8/27/07.

A converted running back, the Lawndale, CA, native played collegiately at Fresno State where he totaled 34 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble, and one recovered fumble in two years at cornerback.

To make room for Fontenot on the practice squad, the Eagles waived SS Erick Harris
