Eagles add punter Donnie Jones, release Mat McBriar


The Philadelphia Eagles have signed punter Donnie Jones formerly of the Houston Texans. Jones was let go by the Texans after they signed Shane Lechler.

Mat McBriar spent the 2012 season with the Eagles. He is unlikely to be out of work for too long as he has always possessed a strong leg and last season was no different with a 46.5 gross average.

The Eagles were due to pay McBriar a $50,000 roster bonus if he was still on the team at 4 pm EST.
