As Head Coach Andy Reid continues to evaluate the team and contemplate changes, the Philadelphia Eagles may be making roster moves on the offensive line. The Chicago Bears cut tackle Chris Williams on Tuesday, Wednesday Williams was visiting with the Eagles. The former first round pick started 38 games for the Bears at a variety of positions along the offensive line. The Bears decided to part ways with the 6'6 320 pound lineman, but one team's trash may be another's treasure. The Eagles are in desperate need of offensive lineman as their line has allowed Michael Vick to be hit 51 times through six games. Chris Williams did visit with the Arizona Cardinals today, so the Eagles are not the only team in the hunt.
Another offensive lineman who may contribute for the Eagles this year is their All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters. Peters ruptured his Achilles tendon early in 2012 and later aggravated the injury in May of 2012. Many thought Peters would be done for the season, but the front office decided not to place the injured tackle on Injured Reserve. By not placing him on IR it leaves the possibility that he will return this season. Jason Peters had been the Eagles best lineman for years prior to the injury. Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs suffered a similar injury in May of 2012. Suggs is attempting to play this week for Baltimore. An Achilles injury can be devastating, but Peters has been rehabbing and training for the opportunity to contribute this season.
