Eagles Sign FB Andrew Bonnet To Futures Deal

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Thursday that they’ve signed FB Andrew Bonnet to a future/reserve contract.

Bonnet becomes the 12th player to sign a futures deal with the Eagles since their season ended. The full list includes:

  1. LB Don Cherry (NFLTR)
  2. TE Anthony Denham
  3. G Darrell Green
  4. CB Aaron Grymes
  5. WR Marcus Johnson
  6. C Aaron Neary
  7. DT Aziz Shittu
  8. WR David Watford
  9. WR Rasheed Bailey
  10. CB Mitchell White
  11. G Josh LeRibeus
  12. WR Dom Williams
  13. FB Andrew Bonnet

Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.

Bonnet, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State back in May. He was cut loose just a few weeks later before signing on with the Bengals.

Unfortunately, Bonnet was cut loose coming out of the preseason before later signing on to the Eagles’ practice squad for a little over a month.

During his college career, Bonnet rushed for 38 yards on eight carries while catching 56 passes for 574 yards receiving and eight total touchdowns.
