Apparently former Eagles special teams coordinator John Harbaugh might be interested in giving free agent tight end L.J. Smith a new lease on life in Baltimore.
Harbaugh, who took the Ravens to the AFC championship game in his first season as the team's head coach, has invited Smith for a visit and the tight end happily accepted, according to a report by Jaminson Hensley of the Baltimore Sun.
The Ravens' invitation comes one day after the Atlanta Falcons broke off negotiations with Smith, who had spent his first six NFL seasons with the Eagles. Smith has also visited with Detroit, but you have to believe he'd much rather play for Harbaugh and the Ravens than a team that went 0-16 last season.
In other news, Harold Lewis, the agent for free agent fullback Leonard Weaver, finally responded to an e-mail from the Inquirer today, but there was no more evidence that his client was close to signing with the Eagles. Asked if he had any recent conversations with the Eagles about Weaver, Lewis said, "Not with Philly today." A team source said the Eagles have gone a while now without having any conversatioins with Lewis.
