Seeking help for the team's offensive line, the Philadelphia Eagles have apparently reached an agreement on a one-year deal with former New York Giants offensive tackle Will Beatty, according to a report from ESPN. 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.

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

Beatty, 32, was a regular starter for the Giants, mainly at left tackle, from 2011 to 2014. 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.

To make room on the roster, the Eagles waived offensive tackle Taylor Hart, who converted from offense to defense this past year. Hart was inactive for the Eagles' games against the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos, with Isaac Seumalo serving as the primary reserve at tackle. He's played 88 career games with 63 starts. Hart is a former defensive tackle who has never played an offensive snap in the NFL.
