Report: Agent didn't let Kampman visit Eagles

A report has surfaced that Aaron Kampman's agent, Neil Cornrich, did not allow him to visit Philly, possibly because the Eagles were not willing to commit to any kind of financial offer.

Report: Agent didn't let Kampman visit Eagles

Update: A team source refutes this report to the Inquirer's Jeff McLane:

There was no truth to report that Eagles wanted Kampman to visit but Cornrich nixed it, according to team source.

From earlier:

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Kampman's agent Neil Cornrich did not allow his visit to Philly happen, possibly because the Eagles were not willing to commit to any kind of financial offer. Kornrich wants to make sure teams are serious about signing Kampman before allowing him to take a physical, according to Silverstein.

 

Kampman is coming off knee surgery after an injury limited him to nine games and 3.5 sacks in 2009. As I mentioned earlier in our mailbag, Kampman will turn 31 next season. The team that signs him will need to take every precaution necessary to make sure he's healthy and has good years left in him.

This is particularly of significance to the Eagles, who signed Stacy Andrews to a $39 million deal last offseason when he was coming off knee surgery. As we all know, Andrews had a disastrous 2009, and the Daily News reported the Eagles were considering cutting him this offseason if he didn't take a pay cut.

As for Kampman, both Scout.com and the Florida Times-Union reported today that he was visiting with the Jaguars.
