The Eagles need linebacker help. That's not a secret. Geoff Mosher of The News Journal has learned that the Eagles may be targeting someone that many Philly fans are familiar with.

The list should feature some high-profile names, such as Atlanta’s Curtis Lofton and Washington’s London Fletcher, but The News Journal has learned that Panthers free-agent linebacker Dan Connor is on the Eagles’ radar.

Several league sources confirmed the team’s interest in the former Penn State All-American, who just finished his fourth season in Carolina, although the degree of interest remains unclear.

 

There are options at LB, and that's a positive for an Eagles team that has struggled at the position for years.
