No one would complain about Harold Landry donning the Eagles jersey.

If you think Eagles fans can be combative with fans of other NFL teams, you should see how they talk to one another. It’s hard to get the entire fan base on one accord sometimes. Believe it or not, they’re still torn on Carson Wentz, but here’s something interested that you may not have noticed.

When rumors began swirling of some perceived interest in Harold Landry and the possibility of the Eagles pursuing him, no one objected. Following a four-year run in Music City with the Tennessee Titans, one in which he notched 279 tackles, including 180 solo stops and 44 tackles for a loss of yardage, to go along with 35.5 sacks and nine pass deflections (we’re including what he did in five career playoff games), why the heck would they?

Landry made the Pro Bowl following the 2021-2022 regular season. That’s the first time that’s happened. Something tells us he’ll make a few more. Like Harris, there’s a question about whether or not Landry is a scheme fit as the Birds play in a traditional 4-3 scheme, and Landry’s been cutting his teeth in Tennessee’s 3-4 during the early part of his pro career. Have no fear though.

He’ll be fine playing with his hand in the dirt. This would be a home run if Philly feels like taking a swing. Here’s a warning. This will be an expensive addition though.
