Report: DT Laws Visits Rams

Two defensive tackles who suited up for the Eagles in 2011 have reportedly drawn interest on the free agent market.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Trevor Laws worked out for the St. Louis Rams on Thursday. The Tampa Bay Times reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have Derek Landri on their radar if they can't sign Amobi Okoye.

UPDATE: Adam Caplan reported on Saturday night that Okoye agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Bucs.

The Eagles have already addressed the defensive tackle position this offseason. Cullen Jenkins restructured his contract. Antonio Dixon was signed to a one-year restricted free agent tender. The other defensive tackles on the roster are Mike Patterson, the team's longest-tenured player, and Cedric Thornton.

Laws was the team's first draft pick in 2008. A second-round selection out of Notre Dame, Laws has 91 career tackles and 5.0 sacks in 60 career games (including playoffs). Last year, Laws had a career-high 40 tackles in 14 games (one start). At 6-1, 304 pounds, Laws has provided quality depth along the interior of the line and has the versatility to line up at end as well.

Landri signed with the team during training camp last year, but was released during the final roster cutdown. He rejoined the team after Dixon went on injured reserve and played in 12 games totaling 43 tackles, 2.0 sacks and 18 quarterback hurries. Even though he didn't play in every game, Landri still led the team with eight tackles for loss.
