Stacy Andrews at guard; Eagles check out RB

Stacy Andrews didn't want to play guard with the Eagles. But guess where the Seahawks are asking him to play? This should be an interesting little experiment.

"Seattle had inquired about Stacy and his situation and I think it's a great opportunity for Stacy to go and play a position that he's probably more comfortable with and that's right tackle."

That's a quote from Eagles GM Howie Roseman after the Eagles traded Stacy Andrews to the Seahawks earlier this month.

But now, Andrews is getting ready to start for Seattle at right guard, the same position the Eagles tried him out at during a failed experiment that lasted just one season.

Andrews had been on the depth chart at right tackle, but will make the switch now that starting right guard Max Unger has been sidelined with turf toe.

"He's an experienced player who has to adapt very quickly to our scheme," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. "He's on a race-horse pace to get ready."

Remember when Andrews told Les Bowen of the Daily News that he would not have signed with the Eagles had he known that they wanted him to play guard?

This should be interesting.

The Seahawks travel to Denver to take on the Broncos on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Andrews' brother, Shawn, has moved over to backup left tackle for the Giants, according to Mike Garafolo of New York suffered an injury to William Beatty and moved Andrews over. A month ago, Shawn Andrews was an afterthought. Now, he's one play away from protecting Eli Manning's blind side.


Running back Chris Jennings worked out for the Eagles this week, according to Adam Caplan of

Jennings, 24, carried 63 times for 220 yards and a touchdown as a member of the Cleveland Browns last season. He also caught nine balls for 56 yards. Jennings (5-10, 218), played his college ball at Arizona. Per Caplan, he's not practice-squad eligible so the Eagles would have to sign Jennings to their 53-man roster.

As Eagletarian noted earlier today, Caplan reported a couple other Eagles workouts: linebacker David Veikune and wide receiver David Clowney.

My earlier post took a detailed look at the performances of Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick Sunday against the Packers.
