Eagles May Be Interested In Jeremy Shockey, According To Report

The Philadelphia Eagles seem to be interested in getting some help at the tight end position. As was reported earlier, Visanthe Shiancoe will be visiting with the team, who may wish to court him. But the Eagles could also be interested in another veteran tight end -- namely, Jeremy Shockey.

Tim McManus of Phillymag reported that the Eagles appear to be seriously considering trying to pick up Shockey.

Bleeding Green Nation offers this take:

Now, he's another big body at 6-5 and is actually about a year younger than Schiancoe at 31. He too, hasn't been super productive in recent seasons either, but not awful. He's only caught 37 and 41 passes in the last two years respectively with a total of 7 TDs. He'll be looking for his 3rd team in 3 seasons. He's also a bit injury prone.

Shockey has plenty of detractors, both in the league and especially among fans. He may not be a solid fit with the Eagles, but he could prove to be a cheaper option than Shiancoe.
