The Philadelphia Eagles Monday announced they have signed LB Rocky Boiman to a one-year contract.
The 6-4, 236-pound linebacker has played in 86 career games (19 starts) and nine playoff contests with Indianapolis (2006-07) and Tennessee (2002-05). Last year, Boiman saw action in all 16 games (7 starts) for the Colts, registering 64 tackles and two interceptions. In 2006, he finished third on the Super Bowl champion Colts with 17 special teams tackles. For his career, Boiman has posted 194 tackles, 5 interceptions (including one returned for a touchdown at Pittsburgh in 2003), 1.5 sacks, and 91 special teams tackles.
The 28-year-old Boiman was a 4th-round draft choice of the Titans in 2002 and set a club record with 28 special teams tackles as a rookie. He was signed as unrestricted free agent by Dallas in 2006, but was released by the Cowboys on September 2 and signed by the Colts one day later. Boiman is a native of Cincinnati, OH, and played collegiately at Notre Dame.
