Free Agent Dan Connor On Eagles Radar, According To Report

The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking for linebacker help in free agency during the 2012 offseason, and an impeding Carolina Panthers free agent could be one of their targets. Panthers linebacker Dan Connor is drawing interest from the Eagles, according to a report by The News Journal.

The News Journal has learned that Panthers free-agent linebacker Dan Connor is on the Eagles' radar. Several league sources confirmed the team's interest in the former Penn State All-American, who just finished his fourth season in Carolina, although the degree of interest remains unclear. At least two sources close to the situation believe Connor, a native of the Delaware County suburb of Wallingford, Pa., is high on the Eagles' wish list.

The report does note however that Connor isn't necessarily the Eagles first option at the linebacker position in free agency, but that there is significant interest there. The Eagles were so interested, according to the report, that the team approached Carolina about a trade for Connor during the 2011 season.
