Eagles in talks with fullback, agent says


One of the mysteries of free agency thus far is that the Eagles haven’t done anything to address their fullback situation.

That mystery might be getting closer to being solved.

Harold Lewis, agent for ex-Seattle free-agent fullback Leonard Weaver, confirmed Tuesday night that he is talking to the Birds about a deal for his client.

“We’re still in talks with the Eagles, and with a few other teams,” Lewis said. “Hopefully, we’re going to get something done (in Philadelphia), but it would be premature to tell you that."

Weaver, 26, might be too good to be true, from the perspective of fans who have long hungered for a power running option. He’s a fullback who can actually carry the ball here and there — 30 times for 130 yards last season, while catching 20 passes for 222 yards. At 6-0, 242, he has played fullback and halfback in an offense very similar to what the Eagles run.
