Free-agent guard Chester Pitts said during a radio interview that the Eagles are one of five teams who have shown interest in him.
"I originally took three trips – Detroit, San Fran and Seattle – and they’re all actually still in the mix, and then Philly and Minnesota actually called last week and said, ‘If you’re ready on the 15th [of July], we’re going to work you out and we have a place for you," Pitts told Sirius Radio (via Scout.com). "For me, I’m 85 percent, I’m pushing at 90 but I don’t like to say I’m at 90 because I’m not quite there yet. But I’ll be 100 percent (in) probably six weeks. So I have about a two-week cushion to get it as healthy and get as strong as I can get it."
Pitts injured his knee in Week 2 of last season and was placed on injured reserve. He had an impressive streak of 113 starts prior to the injury, which required microfracture surgery in the offseason.
He was a second-round pick in 2002. Listed at 6-4, 308 pounds, Pitts turns 31 in June.
