PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The NFL-leading Eagles have signed former New York Giants offensive lineman Will Beatty to provide more depth.

Beatty started 58 games for the Giants at left tackle from 2009-2014. He replaces Taylor Hart, who was released on Tuesday to make room on the roster.

The Eagles lost nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters earlier in the season. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has started in his place.

Beatty played six games in 2016 after missing the 2015 season with a torn pectoral muscle. He's the second veteran player with a Super Bowl ring to join Philadelphia in two days.
