Eagles re-sign TE Ingram to practice squad

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have re-signed TE Cornelius Ingram to the practice squad.

Ingram previously spent weeks 10-14 on the team’s practice squad, but was released on 12/16. Originally a 5th round draft choice of the Eagles in 2009, Ingram (6-4, 250) spent his rookie season on the Injured Reserve list with a knee injury. He remained with the team through the 2010 preseason but was released as part of the team’s final roster cut down.

A versatile athlete, Ingram came into college as a 204-pound quarterback in 2004, while also playing shooting guard and small forward for the Florida basketball team. He made the switch to tight end during his junior season and went on to record 64 catches for 888 yards and 8 touchdowns in his career.

The 25-year-old Ingram attended Hawthorne High School in Hawthorne, FL, where he was a two-time all-state selection in both football and basketball, throwing for more than 1,400 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior and finishing as one of six finalists for Florida’s Mr. Basketball award.
