The Eagles are signing former Pittsburgh Steelers punter Braden Mann to their practice squad, according to a report by Adam Caplan of Pro Football Network.

Mann had been in a training camp battle with incumbent Steelers punter Pressley Harvin III. Both punters made the team’s initial 53-man roster, as the Steelers sought a trade partner for one or the other. Mann was released a day later, when no move materialized.

The Eagles were reportedly interested in Mann, and hosted him for a workout on Sept. 4 after Pittsburgh released him. Philadelphia released 2022 punter Arryn Siposs, but has called him up from the practice squad for each of the first two games. Siposs can only be called up three times before the team must make room for him on the 53-man roster.

The Steelers had the option of signing Mann to their practice squad but chose not to.
