With the trade deadline looming, the Eagles have decided to make a move.

Just not a big one.

On Monday afternoon, the Eagles signed tight end Scott Orndoff to their practice squad.

Orndoff will fill the spot vacated by Bruce Hetor’s promotion and may not be around long as the Eagles could cut one of their defensive tackles when Tim Jernigan is helathy and look to sign them to the practice squad.

He joins tight end Josh Perkins on the practice squad.

Orndoff went to Pitt and accumulated 897 yards, 597 of which came in his senior season.

After going undrafted in 2017, he signed with the Steelers and subsequently spent time with the Lions, Bengals and Jaguars.

Last offseason, he signed with the Orlando Apollos in the AAF. On nine targets, he managed seven catches for 130 yards and a touchdown before the league folded abruptly.

Following the AAF closure, Orndoff signed with the Buccaneers but was released before the start of the regular seasson.

Most recently, he was drafted by the Los Angeles Wildcats in the ninth round of the XFL draft.
