Eagles sign two WRs

The Eagles have signed WRs Nick Miller and DeMarco Sampson, each to two-year contracts.

Miller (5-foot-9, 180) has played in 17 games with the Oakland Raiders (2009-11) and St. Louis Rams (2011), registering four receptions for 48 yards and 404 yards on 45 career punt returns, including an 88-yard touchdown. Originally a rookie free agent signing of Oakland in 2009, Miller played collegiately at  Southern Utah. He was released by the Raiders on October 1, 2011 and signed by the Rams on October 6. He scored his first-career touchdown, an 88-yard punt return on 11/27/11 against Arizona. He was released by the Rams during the 2012 offseason.

Sampson (6-2, 204) was a seventh-round draft choice of the Arizona Cardinals in 2011 after playing collegiately at San Diego State and twice earning All-Mountain West honors. He recorded three catches for 36 yards in 12 games as a rookie. The Chula Vista, CA native was released as part of the Cardinals final roster cut down in 2012.
