Could Runyan Come in After All for a Workout?

It looked before like the Eagles would not bring in Jon Runyan to see if he could be a part of the roster, but now today the Philly Daily News says that they might change their minds and have him in for a workout:

The Eagles need to bring Jon Runyan in, work him out and inspect his knee. And if everything checks out, if he still is a reasonable facsimile of the player he was last season, they need to offer him a contract. “It’s a matter of me being able to go out and do what I’ve done in the past,” Runyan said recently. “The biggest thing is now that I’m able to do it. People are going to have to bring me in, so I can pass a physical and prove I can still play.” It won’t cost the Eagles a fortune to sign Runyan. He knows he’s probably looking at a 1-year deal from any team that brings him in. And he’s OK with that. You put in playing-time incentives that sweeten the pot for him if Andrews doesn’t come back. And you give yourself a nice insurance policy at right tackle if he does.

    This is an op-ed piece by a writer for the Philadelphia Daily News, Paul Domowitch. It’s not even a rumor. It’s one writer’s opinion. C’Mon, you’re better than this.

    I think it is a waste of time there’s no one out there can tell me with his knee in such disarray that at half performance there is no way he is that much better then a young strong free agent….whether he knows the plays or not if you don’t have a strong center of gravity which the base of the strength is the knees then move on retire……or go and get dawkins back sure he lost his speed but he knows the plays……
