CSNPhilly.com

The Eagles signed Canadian rugby star Adam Zaruba to a three-year contract Monday, bringing him in to play tight end, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Zaruba, 26, is 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds. He joins a tight end group that includes Zach Ertz, Trey Burton, Brent Celek, Anthony Denham, and undrafted rookie Billy Brown.

Zaruba worked out for the Eagles on Sunday and takes the roster spot previously held by cornerback Dwayne Gratz. He cannot join the team until he’s granted a visa.

Now I know what you’re thinking.. Rugby? But Zaruba played football at the Carson Graham Secondary School in Vancouver, and he was also recruited to play at Simon Fraser University. So he should be a good for the team.

It should be interesting to see how the Eagles. fare this season. Regardless, I’ll be there rooting them on, as long as I can convince my wife to stop spending so much money on clothes at Saks Off 5th.
