Rumor Mill: Eagles Eye Former Temple LB?


Rumor Mill is an aggregation of Eagles-related reports, rumors and wild speculation. The team does not endorse these items.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media reported on Monday that the Eagles are interested in signing linebacker Tahir Whitehead, who is scheduled to become a free agent on Wednesday. Selected by the Detroit Lions in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Whitehead previously played under Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

The linebacker is also very familiar with the Philadelphia area after spending four years in the city while playing for Temple University. With the Lions in 2015, Whitehead recorded 50 tackles, two sacks and an interception in 16 games and made eight starts.
