Eagles sign Canadian rugby star to play tight end

Eagles NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Monday that they signed Canadian rugby star Adam Zaruba to a three year deal. Zaruba is 196 centimeters, and 120 kilograms*. He will play tight end.

Zaruba's bio on the CanadaSevens website:

Zaruba hit the ground running in 2014-15 after he was named in the squad for the series’ opening tournament at the Gold Coast Sevens. He wouldn’t look back, as Zaruba played in all nine legs of the Sevens Series in his debut campaign. The North Vancouver native had been playing for Capilano RFC in Vancouver for a number of year’s before his call-up to the national side and still at a good age, Zaruba has a great deal of promise in front of him.

So, uh, that sounds good, I think.

Here's Zaruba making a one-handed catch:

Stud, obviously.

*Before you get mad, he's 6'4, 277. OK?
