Here’s one of those Philadelphia Eagles rumors that actually sounds decent.

Okay, before you flip your wig and settle into the ‘why does every Philadelphia Eagles fan think this team is going to sign everybody?’ argument, just relax and take a deep breath. Yes, it’s frustrating. If you’re a Birds fan, hearing all of those discussions about ‘this guy is available’ and ‘that guy would look nice in an Eagles jersey’ can wear on you after a while.

Yes, the Eagles have reportedly activated a 21-day practice window for Isaac Seumalo, but there’s still a serious talent and depth issue on this team. With that being said, Stefen Wisniewski is available, and his acquisition makes sense even if Seumalo is back for Week 10’s game versus the New York Giants. The Eagles need help along their offensive line at both the starting and reserve level, and as our brothers at Section 215 suggested so eloquently, Philly should run and not walk to get a deal with Wisniewski done.

Here’s a quick reminder if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

According to multiple sources, including’s Mike Kaye, the Pittsburgh Steelers waived the 2011 NFL Draft’s 48th-overall selection, a move that followed Pittsburgh’s acquisition of Avery Williamson, who they added at the trade deadline.

The six-foot-three and 305-pound interior lineman can now be claimed off of waivers on November 9th. His last stint in Philly ran from the 2016 season until the 2018 season. He made 29 career starts in 51 appearances (those numbers include the playoffs), but the most comforting thought about a potential Wisniewski acquisition is this.

He’s already familiar with both Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and Eagles offensive line coach and running game coordinator Jeff Stoutland. He’s also inexpensive. He’s owed somewhere around $525,000 for the rest of the 2020 season, and he’d carry a price tag of $1.4 million in 2021. This one’s a no-brainer. Heck, it makes more sense than Jason Peters’ acquisition, and some of you were totally on board with that idea.

Unfortunately, if you’re a Birds fan, you already know how this goes. Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman will ignore him, he’ll probably wind up with the Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs, and every Philadelphia Eagles fan will watch yet another player that could have helped their team help someone else. That sounds about right, doesn’t it?
