He had some workouts with other NFL, but did not sign with anyone.

The talented 24-year old has had trouble staying healthy, amassing 1,225 and eight touchdowns over 34 games in Detroit in three seasons.

The Eagles will be without Sanders and Jordan Howard has a stinger, but head coach Nick Sirianni indicated he should be okay to play. Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell are also available.

The team also added offensive linemen Luke Juriga.
