UConn LB to visit Eagles

0 comments

The Eagles will get a visit from UConn LB Lawrence Wilson, a league source tells Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

Wilson (6-1, 229) was a first-team All-Big East selection as a senior, totaling 123 tackles, 3.5 sacks and an interception. He previously worked out privately for the Eagles, according to the report.

Wilson ran a 4.75 in the 40 at the combine, which ranked 13th among linebackers. He benched 225 pounds 24 times (seventh among linebackers).

Per the report, Wilson projects as a weak-side linebacker at the NFL level.

Ernie Sims manned the weak side for the Eagles last year, but showed little consistency or playmaking ability after coming over from Detroit. He is no longer under contract, and the Eagles did not tender him.

Second-year players Jamar Chaney or Keenan Clayton could get a shot to take over the starting job.

Below is a list of reported Eagles workouts to date. I'll post this as a separate table tomorrow so you can book mark it and keep checking back.

And earlier Monday, I posted some thoughts on the most recent Kevin Kolb reports, along with possible teams that could be interested in trading for him.
