The Eagles made a minor move today which may serve as further evidence that the team will be making the switch to the 3-4 defensive front in 2013.
The team inked LB/DE Chris McCoy, a 2010 seventh-round selection of the Miami Dolphins, to a three-year deal on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old was a member of the Dolphins practice squad that season before eventually signing with Pittsburgh prior to the 2011. McCoy played with the Steelers during the preseason that year, but was a part of the team’s final cuts.
McCoy eventually found work in the CFL where he notched five sacks over two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders.
The Middle Tennessee product is built to play in the 3-4, but he’ll have an uphill battle to climb if he hopes to do it Philadelphia this season.
