Eagles sign TE Rucker to practice squad

The Philadelphia Eagles signed TE Martin Rucker to the practice squad and released TE Rob Myers from the practice squad.

Rucker (6-5, 260) was a fourth round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2008, and caught two passes for 17 yards in five games (one start) in his rookie season. The 24-year-old Rucker was waived by the Browns on September 22, 2009.

A native of St. Joseph, MO, Rucker played collegiately at Missouri, where he was a teammate of Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin, and set the school’s all-time record with 203 career receptions. He is the younger brother of former Panthers DE Mike Rucker.
