Linebacker not visiting Eagles, sources say

Free-agent linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa is not scheduled to visit the Eagles next week, according to team sources, despite an ESPN.com report indicating a visit has been arranged.

Tinoisamoa, 27, was cut two weeks ago by the St. Louis Rams. He visited with the Buffalo Bills last week and is in Chicago today meeting with the Bears, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. In 2003, Tinoisamoa was the first rookie to lead the Rams franchise in tackles, playing under current Bears head coach Lovie Smith and defensive coordinator Bob Babich.

Tinoisamoa has spent most of his career on the weak side, although he has played on the strong side, and led the Rams in tackles in four of his six seasons.
