Eagles Sign Guard/Center Stefen Wisniewski

stefen_wisniewski_jacksonville_jaguarsNFL Insider Mike Garafolo had reported earlier today that the Eagles are going to sign veteran center/guard Stefen Wisniewski, who they was in town talking to the Birds last week.  Before he get finish getting his tweet out the Eagles made it official and have signed the veteran offensive lineman to a one-year deal.

Wisniewski should be a valuable addition to the Eagles because he could be a starter at the left guard position and also backup center Jason Kelce, which would add valuable depth on that offensive line.   The one-year deal means put up or else for the veteran.  I don’t think it’s a bad thing to have players, who are put on the spot.

I think the Birds have drastically improved their offensive line in 2016, if they start off with a healthy Jason Peters at left tackle, Wisniewski at left guard, Kelce at center, Brandon Brooks at right guard and Lane Johnson at right tackle.  They need Peters to be healthy, but I definitely like the moves they have made.

I think that’s a major improvement because you’ve upgraded you guard positions from Allen Barbre and Matt Tobin.  Barbre has proven to be a solid backup, but he gets exposed as a starter.

Wisniewski was a former Penn State All-Amercian.

By the way, the Eagles signed Tobin today to a one-year deal.  He’ll get the chance to fight for playing time.  The career backup got his chance to start a year ago and didn’t do much with it.  He struggled and has to know that he must do some major improving in order to see the football field.

  1. Steve Wisnewski couldn’t even Start for the Jaguars or keep his Starting Job for the Raider who both had worse OL than the Eagles… Hes nothing more than a Camp Body and a Back-Up for Kelce at Center.. He is no NFL Starting Guard by any stretch..

    Andrews,Tobin, Bunche & Draft Pick will all Battle for RG Position
    Barbree will be a Back-up to OT and Brooks will be the Starting LG next to Peters

    1. Man Dude, you love the hell out of ZEKE, every time I login that’s all you talk about which is ok. I think paulman is right on this one(I never agree with him) ……. If Wisnewski was any good more than two teams would have been after him. For me in my opinion if the birds could some how get that top corner that’s who the they should target…… I don’t give a DAM how many CB’s we have… I want an ELITE corner… I am SICK and tired of DEZ B. coming in here

  2. Howie didn’t find Mathis… That legendary offensive line coach wanted him, can think of his name? Peyton Manning’s offensive line coach. Andy hired him at the end. The coach that drafted Kelce and started him over JAMAL .

    1. Yeah you right about Mudd. My only point was Mathis was a journey men guard also. In the right system he became a player.

  3. we have provided a significant upgrade on the offensive line….I’m fine with picking up an offensive weapon like Elliot given the improvement of the offensive line…we need have an emphasis on running the ball and being a bit more physical..

    1. Easy KB,
      I wouldn’t get all excited about the Wisnewski signing, remember this Guy couldn’t keep a Job with the Raiders or Jaguars, who were both desperate for OL Depth .. He’s a Back-up Center to Kelce ..

  4. Have gas seen this guy Moritz boeringer from Germany a receiver, he is crazy athletic but played against scrubs in Germany, 4.43 speed and 6 4 230, and good quickness would take a flier on him in 5th or 6th rd

    1. I read about this guy, the Panthers/Vikings and 4-5 other Teams are giving up him a workout after his off the charts results from his Workout Day University
      He has a 39′ Vertical and Pumped 225lbs like 20 times

      1. Yea pman I watched his Highlights he runs mad but he truly a man amongst babies, not boys babies, it will be hard for him to adjust to the culture and the great athletes he will see everyday here

        1. Kinda of like this Thon Maker is up in Canada playing Basketball against less talented Canadian Players who are 6″ Smaller than he is …

        2. z44, that kid has some jets, I do not know about his overall skill, but he is big and very fast. Reminds me of Josh Gordon as far as his body type and speed. I hope the Eagles will take a look see.

          1. Scouts say that QR Moritz Boheringer reminds them of Jeff Janis of the Packers, who had many of the same measureables when coming out of Saginaw Valley State in Terms of Size, Speed, Athleticism, etc,etc…
            Janis is still trying to find his way with the Packers and played some last Season due to Jordy Nelson’s Injury but did not take full advantage of his Opportunity
