A source tells Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post that the Eagles will receive a visit from Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
Taylor (6-1, 217) completed 59.7 percent of his passes last year, with 24 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also ran for 659 yards and five scores.
At the combine, Taylor ran the fastest 40 time (4.51) among quarterbacks. He told reporters in Indy that he does not want to be evaluated at other positions.
"Teams are grading me at quarterback and I’m getting good feedback from that," Taylor said, per Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. "I’m a quarterback and I’ve been playing this position since I was five. No other position. My preparation, my training, my thought process comes from being a quarterback. So to play another position, I’d be starting all over again. I’m a winner at quarterback, that’s what I do. Look at the numbers at Virginia Tech that I put up."
