Report: Eagles Reach Out To McNeill

As the Eagles look to reorganize the roster in reaction to the news of Jason Peters' ruptured Achilles, they are reportedly continuing to examine all options in free agency. Yesterday, news came down that the team would be hosting former Buffalo Bills left tackle Demetrius Bell in for a visit this weekend.

Now, as reported by ProFootballTalk, they've also reached out to the agent of former San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl left tackle Marcus McNeill. A two-time Pro Bowler in 2006 and 2007, McNeill is an unrestricted free agent after spending his first six years with the Chargers, who selected McNeill in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft. The rub with McNeill, 6-7, 336, is that he's recovering from a neck injury that ended his 2011 season.

Bell and McNeill appear to be the two best left tackles currently on the market, so the Eagles are certainly doing their due diligence. The Eagles could also choose to address the position through the NFL Draft next month, and there are two solid internal options as both Todd Herremans and King Dunlap have experience playing left tackle.
