Eagles Sign Jared Wheeler

MONDAY, 3:13pm: As Tessler initially suggested they would, the Eagles signed Wheeler today to a one-year contract, following his workout with the team (Twitter link).

SATURDAY, 6:26pm: As Mosher previously reported, Wheeler hasn’t signed with the Eagles and will work out for the team Monday, tweets Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

4:22pm: While Tessler believes the Eagles are planning to sign Wheeler, Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com isn’t so sure (via Twitter). He writes that Wheeler is coming in for a workout on Monday, and there isn’t a deal in place for him when he gets there.

3:52pm: The Eagles are looking to add to their offensive line depth in the wake of Evan Mathisrelease, and they are planning to sign former University of Miami offensive lineman Jared Wheeler on Monday, according to NFL agent Brett Tessler (via Twitter).

Wheeler had tried out with the 49ers earlier this offseason, and was most recently seen on the Seahawks roster. He also spent time with the Bills and Panthers, previously.

Wheeler has experience at both center and guard, and could provide versatility and depth to the team’s depth chart. It is probably not likely that Wheeler comes in as the starter after being a journeyman so far in his career, especially with the various options the team has on the roster and in free agency, but stranger things have happened.
