Klecko to be Eagles fullback

It appears in signing Dan Klecko that the Philadelphia Eagles have decided on his position of play. The oft d-lineman/fullback agreed to a 1 year deal with the Eagles. The deal will become official after a physical on Monday.

The former Temple Owl was drafted originally by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He is the son of former New York Sack Exchange member Joe Klecko. The younger Klecko does have three Super Bowl rings that he brings along with him to Philly. He won two of those as a member of the Patriots and one as a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

This will Klecko’s first chance to play fullback full time after spending most of his time at linebacker and defensive line in his career. He does have one touchdown catch in his career against the Patriots in the 2007 AFC Championship Game.

“This was the opportunity Dan was looking for,” Paul Sheehy, Klecko’s agent, said from his Colorado office. “He’s played fullback over 400 snaps in his career. This isn’t like a novelty to him. He’s always felt he could be an excellent fullback if he was given a chance to do it full-time.”

    Klecko is a great value pickup. Whether or not he makes the starting FB position is irrelevant because of the fact that this move demands a higher level of competition. He should help our short yardage running game and maybe then Reid will stop calling for passes on 3rd and 1.
