Eagles to host private workout for QB Ryan Tannehill

The Eagles were not among the 22 teams represented -- or at least who signed in -- at the Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s Pro Day today, but Tannehill said that he has a private workout scheduled with the Birds.

The Eagles were not among the 22 teams represented -- or at least who signed in -- at the Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s Pro Day today, but Tannehill said that he has a private workout scheduled with the Birds.

Tannehill, expected to be the third quarterback taken behind Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, also has private workouts planned with the Browns and Chiefs.

The Browns and Dolphins were among the team most heavily represented. Cleveland offensive coordinator Brad Childress attended as did Miami general manager Jeff Ireland and Seattle sent head coach Pete Carroll.

Speculation is that the Browns could grab him at No. 4, despite assurances this week from Browns brass that they intend to go with Colt McCoy, or the Dolphins at No. 8. Miami’s new offensive coordinator is Mike Sherman, who was A&M’s head coach during Tannehill’s four years.

During his Pro Day, Tannehill missed one throw and had two drops in the 41 attempts. According to reports, he ran a 4.58 in the 40.

He also seemed to have no problem with the broken foot that he suffered in an offseason drill, forcing a delay in his Pro Day.
