IRVING, Texas -- Wade Phillips traditionally doesn't bring in a lot of players to work out.

He likes to stick with his 53-man roster for most of the season and, barring an injury or a trade that might help the team, won't add to the roster very often.

On Tuesday, the team worked out nine players at Valley Ranch and signed fullback Alex Daniels to the practice squad.

Others who worked out were: safety Quintin Demps, center/guard Eric Ghiaciuc, tackle Xavier Fulton, cornerback Ross Weaver, safety De'von Hall, cornerback Geoffrey Pope, running back Alphonso Smith, and running back Quinn Porter.

Demps was the most interesting name of the bunch because of his ability to play free safety and return kicks. Demps played his first two seasons with the Eagles.

Daniels, 270 pounds, was converted from defensive end to fullback by the Oakland Raiders before he was cut last month. Phillips said Daniels is strong and athletic.

"We brought guys in, quite a few, and report it to the league," Phillips said. "We had a spot open on the practice squad and we periodically look at players out there. Leon [Williams] we looked at last year. We've done it all along. We want to keep seeing who's out there and what the possibilities are."

The Cowboys worked out nine players at Valley Ranch on Tuesday, including former Eagles safety Quintin Demps, a San Antonio native.

Also on the list is center/guard Eric Ghiaciuc, tackle Xavier Fulton, cornerback Ross Weaver, safety De'von Hall, cornerback Geoffrey Pope, running back Alphonso Smith, fullback Alex Daniels and running back Quinn Porter.

Demps is the most intersting name of the bunch because of his ability to play free safety and return kicks. In two seasons with the Eagles, Demps averaged 25.3 yards per return, including a touchdown in 2008.

In 2009, Demps was competing with Macho Harris for the starting job at free safety but didn't get it.

He played in nine games last season and was waived before the start of the 2010 season.

Several of the players who worked out have NFL experience, and Ghiaciuc has played with five NFL teams.

PHILADELPHIA -- Left tackle Jason Peters and free safety Quintin Demps have ankle injuries and their return to the Eagles lineup is uncertain.

The biggest blow of course is Peters, who was given the tough assignment of covering outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has been sacked three times, though Keith Brooking was given credit when the quarterback ran away from him. Jay Ratliff has the other two sacks.
