Runyan Cleared to Play, but Return to Eagles Not Likely

The Philadelphia Daily News today reports on the return of 35-year-old Jon Runyan, who is ready to come back, but probably not with the Eagles:

Jon Runyan is ready to play football again. Now he just needs somebody to offer him a contract. The 35-year-old free-agent offensive tackle, who had microfracture surgery on his right knee in February, was cleared for full contact Monday by Dr. James Andrews, the Birmingham, Ala., orthopedist who operated on him. “I can play,” Runyan said. Asked yesterday whether the Eagles had any interest in re-signing Runyan, an Eagles executive told the Daily News, “I wouldn’t rule it out, but right now, it’s unlikely.” Runyan said he is willing to wait for the right offer. “It has to be right,” he said. “Ultimately, the game is about making a bunch of money. If it’s not there now, at some point in the first couple months of the season I’m pretty sure it’s going to be there. It’s just a matter of mentally preparing yourself for that and keeping yourself ready to go.” Runyan and his family live in Mount Laurel, N.J., but he said he will play wherever the best opportunity – and offer – presents itself.
