The idea that the Eagles were heading down the stretch toward a postseason run with inexperienced ex-starting guard Isaac Seumalo as their top reserve tackle always seemed a bit shaky. Management moved to ease that problem Tuesday by signing offensive tackle Will Beatty.
To make room for Beatty, the Taylor Hart offensive tackle project was again shelved, with Hart being released.
Beatty, 32, has played only six games since 2014. But he started 63 games for the New York Giants’ offensive line from 2009 to 2014, even winning a Super Bowl with the Giants. He’s the second player the Eagles signed this week who has a Super Bowl ring, Beatty following former Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.
