The Eagles may take one more dip in the free agency pool before it’s all said and done.
It’s been quite a whirlwind over the last month or so for the Philadelphia Eagles hasn’t it? Every position outside of tight end, starting safety and tight end appears to be under mass reconstruction. Let’s just focus on what’s gone on at defensive tackle for a second. Bringing up the rest of the defensive line would only complicate things.
The Eagles and their fans saw Bennie Logan trade midnight green in for Kansas City Chiefs‘ red. That led us to believe it was Beau Allen‘s time to shine. Then, the Eagles traded with the Baltimore Ravens for the services of defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan. Right after that, Allen suffered an injury, and the prognosis is he might be back for the start of the regular season.
Help may be on the way:

The Eagles, who last December plucked cornerback Dwayne Gratz from the Jacksonville Jaguars, may again look to that same roster in hopes to solve this newfound issue they have at defensive tackle. According to Jordan Raanan of ESPN, the Eagles may be interested in acquiring Jared Odrick.
Currently looking for a place to land, Odrick was the 28th-overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins where he played five seasons. He was released by the Jaguars after spending two seasons there.
For his career, Odrick has amassed 170 tackles, 23 sacks and he’s forced five fumbles while playing in 87 games, but last season he was added to the Jaguars injured reserve following a shoulder injury. The New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks are also giving him a serious look.
We know what some of you are thinking. You’re trying to figure out where this team is getting all of this money from all of a sudden aren’t you? You’re not alone. We’ll all breathe a sigh of relief once the draft is over and each player selected is under contract. Until then, we’re all spectators to some extent. Either way, it appears to be business as usual in Philly. We’ll keep you posted as this story continues to develop.
