The latest in a long line of fullbacks to join the Eagles is Eckel, a Philadelphia native and former Navy star who spent last year with the Patriots and has been out of football since the Pats released him on Sept. 22.

Exactly where Eckel fits in remains unclear. Head coach Andy Reid wasn't available for comment yesterday, and Eckel said the coaches didn't tell him yesterday after he signed what his role will be.
