The Eagles plan to sign 31-year-old veteran linebacker Dannell Ellerbe on Monday, Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media reports.
Ellerbe adds veteran depth to a linebacking corps that will play the rest of the season without All-Pro caliber middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, who ruptured his Achilles three weeks ago against Washington.
After playing in just 15 games over the last two seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Ellerbe was released by New Orleans back in July after suffering a foot injury and had not latched on elsewhere.
