Eagles signed C Matt Tennant and released C Steve Vallos.
A fifth-round pick by the Saints in 2010, Tennant had a cup of coffee with the Pats in September. He's never played more than 21 snaps in a game, but could end up pushing underwhelming starter Dallas Reynolds for playing time later in the season. Tue, Oct 23, 2012 03:12:00 PM

Patriots claimed C Matt Tennant off waivers from the Saints.

A fifth-round pick in 2010, Tennant made 28 appearances for the Saints the past two seasons. He'll have a good chance of sticking in New England after the Pats released veteran Dan Koppen on Friday.

Saints agreed to terms with fifth-round C Matt Tennant on a multi-year contract.

A Third-Team All-American selection and a finalist for the Rimington Trophy at Boston College, Tennant is considered a throwback player with a high football IQ. The Saints traded next year's fourth-rounder to grab Tennant, and he could be starting as soon as 2011.

Saints traded up to select Boston College C Matt Tennant with the No. 158 overall pick in the 2010 draft.

The Saints did well to grab Tennant, considered by many to be the second-best center in the draft. A lunch-pail type with a high football IQ, Tennant is limited athletically and will struggle against bigger nose tackles. Jonathan Goodwin is a free agent in 2011, leaving Tennant as a candidate to take over the starting job.
