The Philadelphia Eagles have added four players to their practice squad: WR Danny Amendola, G Paul Fanaika, G Mike Gibson, TE Rob Myers.
Amendola turned some heads during the preseason, but for now he's better off on the scout team. Fanaika's a seventh-round pick out of Arizona State. Pretty powerful guy, but he needs time to develop. Spent too much time on the ground during his three years as a starter for Arizona State.
Mike Gibson was a sixth-round pick who played right and left tackle at Cal. The Eagles like his toughness. He played through a torn labrum in '06, refusing to have surgery until after the season. The Eagles have four more spots to fill on the practice squad, although they're not required to fill all of those.
