Eagles Put Martin on DL; Sign Brady
PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ The Philadelphia Eagles put wide receiver and kick returner Kelvin Martin on injured reserve Wednesday and signed New Orleans tight end Rickey Brady.
Brady, 25, was a member of the Saints practice squad.
``We had a chance to watch Rickey a little bit on film and he has some athletic ability,″ said Eagles coach Ray Rhodes. ``His is one of the positions that we will be looking at in the future.″
The 6-foot-4, 246-pounder was a sixth-round pick of the Rams in 1994 out of Oklahoma. He was waived by St. Louis on Aug. 30 and signed with New Orleans two days later.
Martin has missed the last five games with a fractured right foot. The former Cowboy and Seahawk signed with Philadelphia this year.
