Eagles Waive Bruce Hector, Sign Treyvon Hester Off Practice Squad

The Eagles made a roster move on Tuesday, waiving defensive tackle Bruce Hector, who made the team as an undrafted free agent out of training camp. 

In a corresponding move, the Eagles signed DT Treyvon Hester from the practice squad. So Hester in, Hector out. 

Hester, 26, was a former seventh-round pick in 2017. He played in 14 games with one start for the Raiders last season and joined the Eagles' practice squad on Sept. 7.

Hector, from USF, had been active in all four games through the first quarter of the season, but had played just 18 snaps on defense and just 12 on special teams. 

In training camp, Hector earned a roster spot after he moved ahead of former draft pick Elijah Qualls on the depth chart. Now, he's been replaced. 

The Eagles also added LB Kyle Wilson to their practice squad. If Hector clears waivers, perhaps he'll be back in that fashion.
