Eagles among teams at Edwards' Pro Day

Links: The Eagles were one of 10 teams reportedly at Appalachian State's Pro Day to check out Armanti Edwards. Plus notes on Tim Tebow and Terrell Owens.

Eagles among teams at Edwards' Pro Day

Just some quick links to pass along in between the Madness:

* The Eagles were among 10 teams to take a look at Armanti Edwards during Appalachian State's Pro Day this week, per the Rock Hill Herald. Edwards was a QB in college, most known for leading the Mountaineers to one of college football's greatest upsets over Michigan. According to the report, teams are looking at him at a variety of positions, including return man and wide receiver. 

* Earlier this week, we referenced Peter King's MMQB column on SI.com, in which he mentioned that the Eagles had both Marty Mornhinweg and QBs coach James Urban at Fordham's Pro Day last week to check out quarterback prospect John Skelton. Wes Bunting of the National Football Post noted on Twitter that he's hearing from sources that the Eagles "seem to have a lot of interest" in Skelton. Again, the team's job this time of year is to check out pretty much everyone, so don't get carried away. Just thought I'd mention it.

* The Tim Tebow mania continues nationally. ESPN's Chris Mortensen has a list of coaches and GMs that were at Florida's Pro Day, although the Eagles were not listed. The Sporting News, meanwhile, reports that five teams will take a look at Tebow in private workouts. Again, the Eagles are not among them.

* As you may have noticed, Terrell Owens is still without a home. John Czarnecki of FoxSports.com reports that Drew Rosenhaus is asking for no less than $5M per season. T.O. had a visit with the Bengals, but other than that, things have been quiet in terms of teams that are interested.
