How much interest do the Eagles have in LB Dan Connor?
It’s a refrain you have heard–and likely said–many, many times. In order for the Eagles defensive to have a chance in 2012, the team must make some major improvements at the linebacker position.
Whether it be through the draft, free agency, or both, the Birds cannot ignore this need. It is screaming for attention.
Thankfully, the Eagles front office seems to be listening, and they are watching to see whose available. One player Philadelphia is reported to have their eyes on is Dan Connor (6’3, 233 lbs), who will be entering free agency along with many of his peers in the NFL on March 13th.
Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News Journal cites “several league sources” as stating that the Eagles have interest in Connor, who spent his college career at Penn State and four seasons with the Carolina Panthers. However, Mosher’s report states that, though there is interest on Philadelphia’s part, Connor is not the team’s “first choice.”
