Eagles Schedule Visits With Casey, Sopoaga, Jean-Francois


Via various reports, the Eagles have scheduled visits with NT Isaac Sopoaga and DT/DE Ricky Jean-Francois of the San Franciscio 49ers and Houston Texans FB/TE James Casey. Sopoaga is a 31-year old nose tackle who plays the run very well. 2-down player. Jean-Francois is a rugged 3-4 DE who plays the run well and is very versatile. Both have ties with Eagles’ VP of Player Personnel Tom Gamble. Chip Kelly could like Casey’s versatility as a lead blocker, outside receiver, and slot weapon. Yahoo!’s Jason La Canfora says he would be “pretty surprised” if Jean-Francois “leaves his first visit in Philly without a deal”.

More to come as news comes out.
