The Eagles brought offensive lineman Chris Williams in for a workout a day after he was released by the Bears, an NFL source said.
NFL tryouts that don't result in signings are common, but the Williams visit to the NovaCare Complex is intriguing because of his experience and because the Eagles have a number of issues on their offensive line.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Williams, a 2008 first round pick out of Vanderbilt, has 38 career starts over more than four seasons. While he was drafted as a left tackle, Williams started 20 games at left guard. He did not start this season, however, and was inactive for the last two games.
