Eagles bring back RB Levens, release S Hart

Sept. 14, 2004


PHILADELHPIA -- Dorsey Levens returned to Philadelphia on Tuesday, signing a one-year deal a little more than a week after the Eagles released him.

The Eagles also signed tackle Ian Allen, placed guard Shawn Andrews on injured reserve and released safety Clinton Hart.

Bringing back Levens was not a surprise. Coach Andy Reid hinted that the 34-year-old running back could be brought back when the Eagles had room on the roster. Levens was first signed after the Eagles lost Correll Buckhalter to a season-ending knee injury, then was among the final cuts when they pared their roster to 53.

Levens rushed for 37 yards on 12 carries in his only preseason game against the New York Jets.

Levens spent last season with the New York Giants and averaged a career-low 2.9 yards a carry.

The Eagles also were thin on the offensive line after Andrews, a first-round pick, broke his leg in the opener against the Giants. He had surgery Monday.

Allen spent the last two seasons with the Giants and started 11 games a year ago. He was the Giants' starting right tackle when training camp opened, but lost his job early, when David Diehl was moved from guard to tackle and rookie Chris Snee was given Diehl's job at right guard.

Hart played all 16 games last year, starting nine when safety Brian Dawkins was injured. He had 61 tackles and a sack, but was inactive for the opener against the Giants.
