Andrews, 32, entered the NFL in 2014 as an undrafted free agent signing by the Eagles. He was a member of the 2017 Super Bowl team and has played in 49 games since. Andrews has played all across the line during his NFL career, logging 188 snaps at left guard, 243 at center, 303 at right guard, and two at right tackle.
He should slide in as a nice depth piece along Jeff Stoutland’s front.
The juicier piece of news here is the release of former third-round pick Davion Taylor. After joining the Eagles in 2020, Taylor seemed like he could be a long-term starter at linebacker following his second year with the team. He made six starts in 2021, logging 41 combined tackles, one tackle for loss, and two forced fumbles. Injuries forced Taylor to miss the majority of 2021, and by the next season, TJ Edwards had solidified himself as the starting MIKE, with Kyzir White at the SAM.
With Taylor no longer in the building and Nakobe Dean battling an ankle injury, the team also went out and signed two notable linebackers, Myles Jack and Zach Cunningham.
Once Dean returns, it’ll be interesting to see how the linebacker room shakes out.
