Leonard Weaver: Get it Done

There were a lot of talks last weekend and in the beginning of this week about the Eagles being close to signing Leonard Weaver. He is their number one free agent priority and with free agency set to start on Friday, they need to get the deal done as soon as they can.

I don’t think there is a doubt in anyone’s mind that the Eagles should re-sign Weaver, and I fully believe it’s going to get done. I think it’s probably at the point right now where they’re making their final negotiations and ironing out smaller details. With Weaver making the All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams this year, his agent is probably trying to get incentives included so Weaver can earn some additional money if he can reach those points again.

With the running back situation having a question mark next to it right now, I think it’s very important for the Eagles to have Weaver back. He seems like the type of guy that can help the younger guys learn the system as well as maybe help out with some blocking techniques. In every interview you see with the guy, he is very humble and is just the kind of player you want on the football team. He is ready to do whatever is asked and he showed that big time during last season.

I’m curious to see if the Eagles give him as many opportunities to run the ball in non-short yardage situations this year as they did last year. Whatever Weaver is asked to do, I know he will do it at a high level. There’s only one thing left to do, pay the man!
