After the end of this weekend's minicamp, the Eagles have scheduled a visit and physical with undrafted rookie free agent linebacker Josh Mauga from Nevada, his agent told the Lahontan Valley News.
Mauga, 6-1, 243, was the WAC leader in tackles through the first seven games of the 2007 season and then injured an MCL, but returned in time to record 11 tackles in the Wolfpack's bowl game. In 2008, he played through a torn pectoral muscle and had 54 tackles with 3.5 sacks. He took part in the scouting combine and Nevada's pro day and then had surgery. He is halfway through a 10-week rehab and agent Michael Hoffman said he is ahead of schedule.
He has played outside in a 3-4 and also played the both middle and strong side in Nevada's 4-3 as a senior, according to NFL.com.
“The issue with Josh is strictly medical,” Hoffman said. “People understand and know he’s a talented player. At this point people want to see he’s healthy. It’s not that he’s missing anything (workouts). Once he’s healthy he’ll be somewhere.”
