Eagles land linebacker

The Philadelphia Eagles made a good move trading for St. Louis Rams linebacker Will Witherspoon.

With injuries at the linebacker position, the Eagles get a a player who has started on the outside and in the middle. I asked Witherspoon this summer which he preferred, and he said it didn't matter.

The Eagles will likely play him in the middle where they've lost Stewart Bradley (season) and Omar Gaither to injuries. Jeremiah Trotter hasn't been very good playing there.

Witherspoon isn't a big linebacker, but he can run. In the Eagles' defense, that is a must.

The Eagles gave up rookie receiver Brandon Gibson and a fifth-round pick for Witherspoon. For a good team like the Eaglers, this is a heck of a move.

It is a heck of a move for the Eagles, but I'm sure the EAGLERS, whoever they are, can always use a good linebacker.
