Eagles sign McCray; cut Burgess

The Eagles have traded one veteran defensive end for another inking Bobby McCray and releasing Derrick Burgess.

A seven-year vet, McCray (6-6, 260) was originally a seventh-round draft choice of Jacksonville in 2004. He spent four seasons with the Jaguars (2004-07) and two with the New Orleans Saints (2008-09), and has compiled 29.5 career sacks in 93 games (37 starts). His best season came in 2006 when he led the Jaguars with a career-high 10 sacks. He also led the Saints with six in 2008.

McCray spent the 2010 preseason with New Orleans but was released on Set. 4 as part of the team’s final roster cut down. The 29-year-old McCray is a native of Miami, FL and played collegiately at Florida, where he was an All-SEC second-team selection as a senior after amassing 107 tackles and 14.5 sacks in his career.
