The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they’ve signed RB Ross Scheuerman and TE Chris Pantale to future/reserve contracts on Thursday.
Pantale, 25, signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College back in April of 2013. He was on and off of the team’s practice squad during his two years in New York before he was placed waivers shortly after last year’s draft.
The Bears elected to claim him off of waivers, but wound up being among their final roster. Pantale briefly caught on with the Eagles at the start of the regular season.
In 2014, Pantale appeared in five games for the Jets and total 24 kick return yards, but no receptions.
Scheuerman, 22, wound up signing on with the Steelers after he went undrafted out of Lafayette back in earlier May. He was waived from the injured reserve list before the start of the season.
During his college career at Lafayette, Scheuerman was a four-time All-Patriot League selection and finished with 3,504 rushing yards and 31 rushing touchdowns in four seasons. He also caught 129 passes for 1,129 yards and eight touchdowns.
