Eagles general manager Howie Roseman acknowledged the Eagles are "looking" for a linebacker, as Jeff McLane posted earlier.

None of the top 4-3 linebackers available has signed yet. Among that group is Detroit's Stephen Tulloch, and according to a report from the Ann Arbor News, Tulloch has some very high -- and very specifics salary demands. The question is whether any team is willing to meet them.

According to the report, citing sources, Tulloch is seeking more than Cleveland's D'Qwell Jackson's five-year deal, which is worth $42.5 million ($19 million in guarantees and bonuses). Tulloch wants $6 million per year, with at least 40 percent of the total guaranteed. Plus, bonuses and incentives.

Tulloch played in Detroit last year for $3.25 million under a 1-year contract. He was the team's leading tackler.

Former Strath Haven High and Penn State star Dan Connor has signed with the Cowboys, according to ESPN.com Connor spent yesterday and today at the Cowboys' practice facility.

"We're excited to have Dan Connor in, a Penn State guy, drafted by Carolina," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said on a conference call. "He is the right kind of guy, a very productive player for them, a very productive player in college. We've had a good visit with him so far, and we'll get the chance to visit with him more today and just see where we are and where he is and continue along with this process."

Connor, of course, was a Penn State teammate of Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee.
