Countess now returns to the Eagles for a 4th stint after being taken by the team in the 6th round of the 2016 draft. He appeared in two games for the Eagles during the 2020 season and has played in 43 career games with the Rams and Jets.
Philadelphia opens up the preseason at home against Pittsburgh Thursday night at 7:30 PM EST.
