Eagles interested in Bills LB, report says

The Eagles have contacted the agent for Bills free agent linebacker Angelo Crowell but have not made a contract offer, NFL.com is reporting. Crowell is represented by Todd France, who also represents Brian Westbrook.

Crowell visited Detroit on Wednesday and Tampa Bay on Monday, according to the report. St. Louis also has expressed interest.

Crowell, 27, missed all of last season following knee surgery and is not expected to be cleared for full football workouts until after the draft.

He apparently surprised the Bills by having the arthroscopic surgery in late August. Although the surgery would have required a recovery period of one to four weeks, the team put him on injured reserve. That issue seemingly ensured that he would not be back in Buffalo when his contract expired.

He is listed at 6-1, 246 and was a third-round pick of the Bills in the 2003 draft.

A 5-year veteran, he had a career-high 126 tackles in 16 games in 2007. His older brother, Germane, is a former NFL wide receiver.
