Even as it appears more likely that the Eagles will sign linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, team president Joe Banner was not about to reveal the team's intentions.
At a media event this morning at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Banner declined to comment on Trotter's situation. All he would say is, "We've worked him out."
Banner and Phillies president David Montgomery attended the event to announce a joint partnership involving a fundraising initiative for breast cancer research. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
If signed, Trotter would be the largest linebacker on the roster and would help the Eagles defend the run. The Eagles allowed 120-plus rushing yards just six times in 19 games last season, but four of those six came against division opponents.
More to come ...
