Eagles sign former Giants offensive tackle Will Beatty to one-year deal

The Philadelphia Eagles are adding a veteran offensive tackle with local ties as they gear up for a potential playoff run.

After missing the entire 2015 season with a torn pectoral muscle, Beatty appeared as a backup blocking tight end in six games last season.

A former second round draft pick of the Giants in 2009, Beatty was the primary left tackle protecting quarterback quarterback Eli Manning for the last five seasons. In addition to Peters, the Eagles have also lost running back Darren Sproles, linebacker Jordan Hicks, safety Chris Maragos, cornerback Sidney Jones and several other key players to serious injuries this season. He had his best seasons in 2013-14 and 2014-15 for NY, but missed the entire 2015-16 season due to rotator cuff surgery.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai stepped in to replace Peters and played at a higher level against the Denver Broncos in Week 9 than he did the previous game against the San Francisco 49ers when he surrendered two sacks. After nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters suffered a season-ending ACL tear October 23, the Eagles elevated promising second-year player Halapoulivaati Vaitai into his starting spot, leaving the team with shaky backup options.

Big V has played very well, so this move shouldn't supplant Vaitai as the starter, but it will offer the Eagles some more reliable tackle depth. Hart was waived to make room for Beatty.

Isaac Seumalo, who spent all offseason working as a guard, has served as Philly's swing tackle the past two games, and the team signed Hart for insurance.
