The Eagles signed former Cowboys P Mat McBriar to a one-year deal, the team announced Wednesday.

McBriar, a two-time Pro Bowler, has spent all eight of his NFL seasons punting for Dallas. In 14 games last season, he had a net average of 36.1 yards, the sescond-lowest of his career.

McBriar, 33, has a career net-punting average of 38.4 yards. He underwent surgery in early February to dissolve a cyst below his left knee. McBriar was one of a few punters who worked out with Philadelphia this week. 

He has punted 494 times for 22,369 yards for a 45.3 career average, which ranks fourth in NFL history. McBriar’s career net average is 38.4 yards and he has downed 175 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line.
