Who knew a phrase containing the word 'tampering' could wind up being so much fun AND legal? The new league year inches closer. Sources have told Bo Wulf and Zach Berman that the Philadelphia Eagles have added another veteran acquisition at a position of need. Matt Hennessy leaves one nest for another as he ends his tenure with the Atlanta Falcons to begin a fresh start in the City of Brotherly Love.

He stands at six-foot-four. He tips the scales at 309 pounds. Trust us on this one if you haven't watched a ton of Falcons football. Hennessy could be a good acquisition despite missing the entire 2023 season with a knee injury.

Matt Hennessy is a versatile offensive lineman that gives the Eagles depth and some versatility.

Those who follow Temple Owls football are already very well aware of who Matt Hennessy is. A former First-Team All-AAC nod and Third-team All-American (2019), He ended his collegiate career by being named a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, an award given to the best center in college football.

He was a third-round choice of the Falcons in the 2020 NFL Draft. He comes to Philly having held down the job of anchoring Atlanta's line for three seasons. Mostly he served in a reserve role, but he started all 17 games in 2021.

The belief is he'll compete with Tyler Steen for a starting job as Cam Jurgens moves from right guard to presumably take over at center for the newly-retired Jason Kelce. We'll see what happens by the time we reach training camp.
