Report: Eagles Won't Target DE Alex Brown

The Eagles have made significant changes at the defensive end position this off-season, but don't expect them to add veteran Alex Brown who was released by the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News-Journal tweeted that Brown "isn't on (the Eagles') radar, a team source said."

Brown was a fourth-round pick of the Bears in 2002 and after 127 games (107 starts) he finished fourth in team history with 43.5 sacks. The 6-3, 260-pound Brown was being shopped by the Bears, according to their team's website. Of course, the Bears signed defensive end Julius Peppers, who will likely take over Brown's right end spot.

The Eagles acquired Darryl Tapp from the Seahawks in mid-March to bolster the rotation. In that trade, the Eagles shipped out another defensive end Chris Clemons. They have also parted ways with veteran Darren Howard this off-season.
