The Eagles signed wide receiver Deon Cain to the practice squad on Monday, releasing linebacker Christian Elliss.

Standing 6-foot-2, 202-pounds, Cain is familiar to Head Coach Nick Sirianni as he was Indianapolis’ sixth-round pick in 2018 out of Clemson.

Ellis was making his second stint with Philadelphia.

Elliss was signed by the Vikings as a rookie free agent out of Idaho. A first-team All-Big Sky selection in each of the past two seasons, Elliss saw his 2020 season wiped out by COVID-19.
