Philadelphia Eagles Sign Former Penn State Defensive Lineman PJ Mustipher

Former Penn State football defensive lineman PJ Mustipher signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Mustipher signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent after the 2023 NFL Draft. He was signed to the New Orleans Saints’ active roster in December from Denver’s practice squad and played in four games and made four total tackles.

Mustipher was a two-time second-team All-Big Ten recipient and appeared in over 50 games for Penn State. He arrived on campus in 2018 as a four-star recruit and appeared in all 12 regular-season games during his true freshman season.

Over the next two seasons, Mustipher appeared in every single game for the Nittany Lions and was a full-time starter in the 2020 season.

In 2021, Mustipher was voted a team captain for the first time in his career but suffered an injury against Iowa that kept him out for the rest of the season. As a result, he opted to return to Happy Valley for the 2022 season and helped lead the team to an 11-2 record and a Rose Bowl win.

Over his five seasons on the team, Mustipher totaled 144 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and three sacks.
