In wake of Andrews trade, Eagles re-sign G Jean-Gilles

The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed guard Max Jean-Gilles to bring their roster to 53 players, the team announced Sunday.

The Eagles released Jean-Gilles on Saturday before trading guard Stacy Andrews to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for an undisclosed 2011 draft pick.

The trade wasn't completed until after the 6 p.m. ET roster deadline, so the Eagleswere forced to keep Andrews on the roster.

With Andrews' departure, the Eagles' roster dipped to 52 players, paving the way for Jean-Gilles return.

The team's Web site states that the Eagles worked a deal with Jean-Gilles prior to cutting him. As a vested veteran, Jean-Gilles isn't subject to the NFL's waiver-claim procedure, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said on Saturday.

The Eagles now house 10 offensive linemen on the roster.

Jean-Gilles was drafted by the Eagles in the 4th round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 29 games with the Eagles, starting 16.
