PHILADELPHIA, May 28 (UPI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles Friday signed 33-year-old quarterback Jeff Blake to a one-year contract.
Blake, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals, will join the Eagles as a backup behind sarter Donovan McNabb. The Eagles also have quarterbacks Koy Detmer, Andy Hall and Phil Stambaugh.
"It's good to add a veteran quarterback to the mix," Coach Andy Reid said. "We're looking forward to bringing in Jeff for his experience and his quarterbacking ability he has displayed over the last 12 years."
Blake has thrown for 21,529 yards and 132 touchdowns in his NFL career. He played for the New York Jets, Cincinnati, New Orleans and Baltimore in addition to Arizona.
