Eagles Sign Safety

Eagles Add Safety Scirrotto; Place Harris On IR

By Lance Epstein

On Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles and former Penn State safety Anthony Scirrotto agreed to terms on a contract. Scirrotto was at Leigh today and practiced during the team’s afternoon session.

With the addition of Scirrotto, the Eagles have finally placed safety Antoine Harris on Injured Reserved. Harris suffered a Lisfranc injury during the Eagles first preseason game last Friday against Jacksonville.

While at Penn State, the 6-foot, 202-pound safety earned first-team All-Big Ten honors twice. He also recorded 184 tackles and 12 interceptions during his four-year career.

This will be Scirrotto's second season in the NFL. He was 2009 undrafted rookie, who signed as a free agent with the Carolina Panthers. Eventually, the Panthers released him, but wound up on the New York Giants' practice squad.

He is most likely just a training camp body for the Eagles. In order for Scirrotto to make the club, he would have to leap frog rookie Kurt Coleman and third-year pro Quintin Demps on the depth chart. Both are having very good camps and are just better football players than Scirrotto.
