Leonard Weaver an Eagle?

ESPN’s John Clayton, in a Seattle radio interview, reported free-agent fullback Leonard Weaver may sign with the Eagles as early as Wednesday. According to Johnny, Weaver has already visited. I’m suspicious of that because the Birds normally announce all their free-agent visits. Was I asleep when said meeting occurred?

Now, I am no fan of ESPN and their constant spreading of misinformation, but Clayton is a respected “Insider.” We’ll see if anything comes of this or not.

    This would be a solid move by the Eagles if they are able to finalize the deal.  Weaver is a very good, young FB.  However, the idea that he is a protypical FB is not quite accurate.  He is a converted TE that is still learning the art of playing FB.  Weaver blossomed in the role last season and is certainly a far cry from Dan Klecko.  His best attribute is his pass-catching ability out of the backfiled.  He is a decent blocker, but he is not a crushing lead blocker like some want to beleive.  Don’t get me wrong, he is a solid lead blocker, but still needs some time to develop into the role.  Overall, this would be a very good pickup and would fill a position of need.

    I’m not sold on Weaver completely. Actually, he’s an average blocker on a good day, which is why he hasn’t been getting a lot of attention. Also, his asking price is way too high. Some of the info about him and the Eagles is agent posturing. He’s trying to manufacture a bidding war. He may sign with the Birds, but don’t bet on it.
