Riders neg lister and Canadian rugby star Adam Zaruba signs with Eagles

Canadian rugby sensation Adam Zaruba is getting another NFL opportunity with the Philadelphia Eagles after he signed a reserve/futures deal on Wednesday.

Zaruba worked out for the Eagles in July and attended training camp in Philly. He was released among final cuts and his CFL rights are owned by Saskatchewan after the Riders added him to the neg list in June.

The 24-year-old, six-foot-five and 265-pounder was playing tight end in training camp with the Eagles.

Zaruba played football in high school and was recruited by SFU but never took the field before turning his attention to rugby.
