Eagles sign Fountain to PS

The Eagles have signed DE Maurice Fountain to the practice squad as a replacement for DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, who was signed by Tampa Bay. 

Fountain, a 6-foot-4, 270-pound native of Camden, SC, was with the Seattle Seahawks during this year’s preseason and was also a member of Seattle’s practice squad for the last week of the 2010 season. In 2008, Fountain spent time with the Miami Dolphins during training camp.

The 29-year-old spent two seasons with the Hartford Colonials of the UFL in 2009-10. He was selected as a member of the All-Rookie team as a member of the Utah Blaze (AF1) in 2008, and he set a franchise record with 13.0 sacks in 2007 while he was with the Manchester Wolves (AF2). Fountain became only the second player in Clemson University’s history to play in 50 career games, including three bowl games, and compiled five sacks as well as 19 tackles for loss and 90 total tackles from 2001-04 with the Tigers.
