The Eagles Are Lacking Depth At Outside Linebacker

The outside linebackers were working out on Thursday and I’m concerned about the Eagles situation at the position.  We’ve got Pro Bowler Connor Barwin on one side, and on the other we have Brandon Graham coming into his own, but there are nothing but questions behind them.
Barwin, the tall, long-armed veteran backer is the prototype […]

Eagles Lack Depth At OLB, Need Big Year Out Of Graham
