Pierschbacher, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of Washington back in 2019. He signed a four-year, $2.8 million contract with Washington, but was waived coming out of training camp in 2020.

Washington re-signed Pierschbacher to their practice squad and he bounced on and off of the unit until the Eagles signed him to their roster. Philadelphia cut him coming out of the preseason this year, though. 

For his career, Pierschbacher has appeared in eight games for the Eagles and Washington, making zero starts.
