Derrick Burgess is returning to Philadelphia.
The Eagles announced Tuesday that they have signed the veteran defensive end, originally drafted by Philadelphia in 2001.
Burgess will help replace the loss of rookie defensive end Brandon Graham, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury.
Graham recorded three sacks and started six games prior to his injury.
Burgess, a 10-year veteran, was cut by the New England Patriots in the preseason after starting six games and recording 5 sacks in 2009.
