The Eagles brought back safety Anthony Harris on Tuesday to fortify a position that needed help, according to an ESPN report.
Harris, 31, played in 14 games last season with the Eagles, his first with the team. He had one interception and 72 tackles. He played three games for the Broncos this season, exclusively on special teams.
The Eagles are dealing with recent injuries to safeties C.J. Gardner-Johnson and Reed Blankenship. Gardner-Johnson suffered a lacerated kidney against Green Bay and is on the injured reserve. It is not known when he will return.
Blankenship suffered an apparent ankle injury Sunday against the Giants. He is not expected to go on the injured reserve.
The Eagles are down to two safeties — Marcus Epps and K’Von Wallace.
Harris was cut by the Eagles on final cutdown day and went to their practice squad. Harris and the Eagles agreed to part ways less than a week later.
In six NFL seasons with the Vikings, Harris had nine interceptions and 284 tackles.
