Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Turner, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech back in May of last year. He was on and off of the Eagles’ practice squad during the 2016 season.
Turner was once again cut loose coming out of the preseason last year and later waived from injured reserve with a settlement.
During his college career, Turner caught 87 passes for 1,171 yards receiving and seven touchdowns for Louisana Tech over the course of 23 games.
