Eagles cheerleaders scouting Michael Jackson's daughter

While the Eagles search for what will presumably amount to an entire team's worth of better players, their cheerleaders have been doing some scouting of their own.

While the Eagles search for what will presumably amount to an entire team's worth of players, their cheerleaders have been doing some scouting of their own. Their tracking has led them to a Los Angeles high school that happens to feature Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, in its student body.

What you can't tell from that video because it feature mostly clapping is that, according to Eagles head cheerleader Barbara Zaun, Paris has that "wow factor," which, combined with her familiarty (or "numbness") to the "limelight" would make her a fantastic choice to join the squad.

"...we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges … We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!”

--Barbara Zaun

Unfortunately, at the age of 14, Paris is not eligible to tryout until her 18th birthday, as well as the completion of her high school diploma. 

But the Eagles will be waiting.

In the mean time, the team will continue not releasing Nnamdi Asomugha.
