Eagles Work Out Veteran LB

The Philadelphia Eagles have been busy over the past few days.

Not only did they sign starting ORT Todd Herremans to a three-year deal worth over $21 million, but they also worked out a veteran free-agent.

An NFL source confirmed SLB Ben Leber visited and worked out for the team this week.

Leber, who spent most of last season with the St. Louis Rams, was released by the Rams in December.

Sixth-year pro Akeem Jordan is the current starting SLB for the Eagles.

Leber actually drew serious interest from the Eagles during the free agency period of 2006, two sources confirmed, but he wound up signing a multi-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

The veteran defender was originally selected in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers.
