The Eagles made a flurry of rookie free-agent signings Saturday night after they wrapped up their draft. According to an NFL source they signed LSU punter Brad Wing, Alabama defensive lineman Damion Square, LSU receiver, running back and return specialist Russell Sheppard, Stony Brook running back Miguel Maysonet, Arizona center Kyle Quinn, Oregon defensive lineman Isaac Remington, inside linebacker Jacob Knott out of Iowa State, Iowa guard Matthew Toban and running back Matthew Tucker out of TCU. Here’s a breakdown of the newcomers: Damion Square, DE, Alabama The 6-foot-2, 293-pound former Crimson Tide lineman moved around on the D-line, from end to tackle. He tore his ACL in the second game of the 2009 season but started six times in 2010 before becoming a full-time starter in 2011. This past season, Square started 13 games for the BCS champions. He made 33 tackles, four of them for loss, and also racked up 3.5 sacks. Brad Wing, LSU, punter Considered the draft’s top-rated punter, Wing’s career at LSU was marred by a bowl-game suspension for violating team rules. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect won the job as a redshirt sophomore and started the past 24 games for LSU. Russell Sheppard, WR/RS, LSU Sheppard (6-0, 196) clocked two 40-yard dashes of 4.46 at his Pro Day, along with recording a 38 1/2-inch vertical. He worked as a wide receiver and defensive back at the Pro Day and some scouts feel he fits better on defense. Miguel Maysonet, RB, Stony Brook He’s short (5-9, 209) but compact. Maysonet first started at Hofstra, which dropped its football program in 2009 after he led the team with 385 rushing yards and three touchdowns. As a senior at Stony Brook, he rushed for 1,965 yards and 15 touchdowns on 267 carries. Kyle Quinn, C, Arizona Quinn (6-4, 297) was named All-Pac 12 honorable mention and added some pounds after the season to get closer to 300. He was a two-year starter for the Wildcats, who ran a spread offense and used a zone-blocking scheme.
