The Eagles have announced the signing of fifth-round DE-OLB Ricky Sapp to a four-year contract.

Sapp had 17½ sacks in 50 career games (36 starts) and finished 15th on Clemson’s all-time list with 38 tackles for loss. He was second-team All-ACC as a senior in 14 starts with five sacks.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Sapp is "extremely athletic with very long arms to create extension and lock out" but also that he "lacks lower-body strength and is not strong at the point of attack."
