Bethel-Thompson has yet to appear in an NFL game.


Tavarres, 23, wound up signing on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Incarnate Word back in May. He signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Eagles and was stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

During his senior season, Tavarres recorded 110 tackles, 8.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and five pass defenses.
