Stanford grad Egboh picked up by NFL's Philadelphia Eagles

Camarillo, Gerhart shine for the Vikings in preseason win

Former Stanford defensive end Pannel Egboh is packing his NFL bags and moving once again. The latest stop for Egboh will be the Philadelphia Eagles, who on Tuesday announced they had claimed Egboh off waivers from the Houston Texans.

The Eagles also placed defensive end Ricky Sapp on the Injured Reserve List due to a knee injury.

Originally a rookie free agent who signed with the San Francisco in 2009, the 6-foot-6, 287-pound Egboh spent training camp with the 49ers but was released prior to the start of the regular season. He spent the final four weeks of the 2009 campaign on the Texans' practice squad after being signed on December 9.

A four-year letterman at Stanford, Egboh appeared in 40 career games (36 starts), tallying 98 tackles, 15.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He was selected to play in Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game and the East-West Shrine All-Star following his senior season in 2008.

A native of Mesquite, Texas, Egboh was a tight end and defensive end at North Mesquite High School, earning first-team, all-district honors as a senior.

In other NFL news:

Former Stanford wide receiver Greg Camarillo made his debut with the Minnesota Vikings a successful one by catching four passes for 47 yards (11.8 average) in a 24-13 preseason victory over the host Seattle Seahawks last week.

Camarillo was picked up in a trade from the Miami Dolphins earlier in the week.

Stanford grad Toby Gerhart had his best day as a pro as he rushed seven times for 30 yards in the Vikings' victory. Gerhart ranks No. 2 on the team in rushing this preseason with 64 yards on 19 carries. Gerhart, however, is still looking for his first touchdown as a pro.
