Defensive lineman Joe Ostman will miss the 2019 NFL season with a torn ACL, and the Philadelphia Eagles are wasting no time in finding a replacement.

On Tuesday morning, the team announced that they had agreed to a deal with Kasim Edebali ahead of the organization's preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans Thursday.

Born in Hamburg, Germany, the 6-2, 253-pound fifth-year veteran has spent time with the New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Bears, and Cincinnati Bengals over the course of his career. However, he really hasn't had a steady role in the NFL since his first stint with the Saints.

Edebali signed with New Orleans as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College and immediately saw a role on the field, failing to miss a game in his first three seasons. By the time his tenure with the Saints was complete in 2016, Edebali had totaled 53 tackles, 8 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 3 passes defended.

While it is unsure exactly how much time he will see right off the bat, you can bet that he will be motivated to prove himself now that Philly has a need.
