Eagles Sign CB De’Vante Bausby & TE Billy Brown


The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday that they’ve signed CB De’Vante Bausby and TE Billy Brown to contracts.

Bausby, 25, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh State back in May of 2015. He lasted just over a month in Kansas City before he waived and later signed to the Bears’ practice squad.

Chicago elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract but he was once again added to their practice squad after being among their final roster cuts. The Bears promoted him to their active roster before cutting him loose and re-signing him to their practice squad last year.

The Chiefs signed him to a contract shortly after this last year’s draft only to cut him loose at the start of the 2017 season. Bausby later signed on to the Eagles’ practice squad.

In 2016, Bausby appeared in three games and recorded 12 tackles and no interceptions.

Brown, 24, signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Shepherd back in May of last year. He was among the team’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and was signed to their practice squad one day later.

Brown has yet to appear in an NFL game.

During his senior year at Shepherd as a receiver, Brown recorded 99 receptions for 1,580 yards, 22 touchdowns, and received first-team All-MEC honors.
