Casey Matthews to visit Eagles

Earlier Wednesday, in an episode of That's What He Said, Bob Ford of the Inquirer and Marcus Hayes of the Daily News answered the question: Which NFL player would have the biggest impact if added to the Eagles' roster?

Bob chose Packers linebacker/defensive end Clay Matthews.

Well, he's not leaving Green Bay, but the Eagles are showing some level of interest in his brother, Casey.

Oregon linebacker Casey Matthews will be in Philadelphia Thursday for an official visit, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

NFL teams are allowed to have 30 prospects in for official visits.

Matthews (6-1, 231) was a first-team All-Pac 10 selection as a senior, piling up 73 tackles, three sacks and three interceptions. He suffered a shoulder injury during the combine.

Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has Matthews rated as his sixth-best inside linebacker.

Below are some YouTube highlights of him at Oregon.

Meanwhile, Nebraska safety DeJon Gomes tells KFFL.com that he also has a visit scheduled with the Birds.

Gomes (6-0, 208) had 93 tackles, two forced fumbles and three interceptions as a senior. Bunting has him ranked as the seventh-best free safety prospect.

Earlier Wednesday, I had a post that mentioned Cam Newton, DeSean Jackson, Jimmy Smith and Chris T. Jones.
