As we all know the Eagles have lacked big time at the linebacker position for years. Well today the Eagles have signed Eric Wilson, former Vikings linebacker to a 1 year deal worth up to $3.25 million.
This signing is a very underrated and surprisingly cheap deal for the Eagles. Wilson totaled 122 tackles and 3 INTs last season for the Vikings.
This signing just like Anthony Harris makes a lot of sense. Jonathan Gannon, who is now the Eagles defensive coordinator is a Mike Zimmer disciple. Gannon coached under Zimmer in Minnesota, so the scheme fit makes a lot of sense with Wilson.
I’m really impressed with the signings of Harris and Wilson for the price they got both of them at. Lets just hope Howie doesn’t botch this years draft.
