Eagles Contact The Agent Of Former Pro Bowl OT, Marcus McNeillBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Saturday, March 31st, 2012
According to Profootballtalk.com, the Eagles have contacted the agent of former San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl offensive tackle Marcus McNeill. McNeill was a one of the best offensive tackles in the NFL for a number of years until the 2011 season when he suffered a serious neck injury.
Alvin Keels, McNeill’s agent told PFT that he had been contacted by the Birds front office, but he doesn’t know how serious they are about signing his client.
Of course the reason for the call was because of the Achilles tendon injury suffered by Birds Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters.
The key will be the health of McNeill’s neck. As of early January of this year, McNeill says he’s still interested in playing football, as long as he can do it safely.
I could see the Birds flying in McNeill for a physical, so that the Birds could have their own physicians take a close look at him. If he is, don’t be surprised if the Birds sign him to a short-term deal.
