In a move that shakes up the team's quarterback depth chart, the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday released 10th-year veteran Koy Detmer and signed A.J. Feeley, who had been jettisoned on Monday by San Diego, to a two-year contract.

Feeley, 29, began his career with the Eagles in 2001, as a fifth-round draft choice, and he spent three years in Philadelphia before being traded to Miami in 2004. After a dismal 2004 season with the Dolphins, he was dealt to the Chargers in 2005.

Almost as interesting as Feeley's return to the Eagles is the departure of Detmer, a respected veteran who was well respected by his teammates, and who for years was the backup to Donovan McNabb. Notable as well is that Detmer served as the holder for kicker David Akers, a chore many felt would allow him to keep a spot on the roster.

Intersting news. I don't think Feely is an upgrade over Detmer, but the Eagles staff seem to think they can get something out of Feely. Good luck at that. :lol:

I had said FEELEY sucked from Day One and was accused of just being a "hater".

The dude flat out sucks.

His best days were with the Eagles when Donovan went down acuppola seasons ago.

And, the last thing he did as a Charger was throw a TD pass!!:icon_mrgreen: :icon_tease:

Maybe that's why the Eagles decided to get him back.
