With the news that left tackle Jason Peters suffered a ruptured Achilles while training near his home in Texas, the Eagles are reportedly moving quickly to help firm up the offensive line. Howard Eskin has reported that the Eagles will host free agent offensive tackle Demetrius Bell for a visit this weekend.
Bell, 27, started 16 games for the Buffalo Bills in 2010 at left tackle and played seven games for the Bills in 2011 while missing time with a shoulder injury. At 6-5, 311, Bell is considered a good athlete for the position and could potentially fit in Howard Mudd's scheme. Of course, the Eagles acquired Peters via trade from the Bills in 2009, so perhaps they'll look to temporarily replace Peters with another former Bill.
Internally, the Eagles already have Todd Herremans, who excelled in his lone start at left tackle in 2011, and King Dunlap, who has started three games at left tackle for the Eagles over the last two seasons.
