Eagles Sign CB Dwayne Gratz & LS Rick Lovato, Place 3 On Injured Reserve

The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they’ve signed CB Dwayne Gratz and LS Rick Lovato to their active roster and placed LS Jon Dorenbos (wrist), RB Wendell Smallwood (knee), T Matt Tobin (knee) on injured reserve.

  • Adam Caplan confirms that the Eagles are signing Gratz to a two-year contract.

Gratz, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.1 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $790,076 for the 2016 season.

The Jaguars reinstated Gratz from the reserve/suspended list before cutting him loose soon after. The Rams later claimed him off of waivers before waiving him last month.

In 2016, Gratz has appeared in six games and recorded five tackles and no interceptions for the Jaguars and Rams.

Lovato, 25, originally signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Old Dominion back in May of last year. He ended up being waived coming out of the preseason but signed on with the Packers in late December.

Unfortunately, Lovato was unable to make the Packers’ 53-man roster coming out of the preseason. The Redskins signed him to their active roster last month but waived him last week to make room for DL A.J. Francis.

In 2016, Lovato has appeared in two games.
