Eagles Claim CB Isaiah Trufant Off Waivers

Cornerback Isaiah Trufant has been claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles, Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports.

Trufant was waived by the New York Jets on January 22, the eve of the 2010 AFC Championship Game, when the team signed defensive lineman Martin Tevaseu off the practice squad.

The NFL's waivers period last 10 days in the post-season, and the Eagles claimed Trufant on February 1. Trufant will be added to the Jets' roster on Monday, Caplan adds.

Trufant, 28, joined the Jets' practice squad after a standout season in the UFL, and was added to the active roster in the final week of the regular season. Trufant was active in the final regular season game, making two tackles on special teams, and dressed for the Jets' divisional playoff win over the New England Patriots.

When added to the Jets' roster in December, Trufant signed a three-year contract, meaning he'll be signed through the 2012 at non-guaranteed league minimum base salaries.
