Eagles sign DT/FB Dan Klecko

Klecko visited the Eagles last Tuesday and PFT is reporting that Adam Schefter is reporting that he has signed a one year deal.

Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have reached an agreement on a one-year contract with free agent Dan Klecko.

Klecko has primarily played defensive tackle during his five-year NFL career with the Colts and Patriots, but the Eagles plan to move him to fullback.

The interesting thing is that it appears the Eagles see Klecko as primarily a fullback. We could certainly use some depth at DT, where Klecko primarily played in his career, but we also could use a fullback. at 5-11, 275 pounds Klecko makes for a pretty big fullback... I'm going to check with our pals at the Colts blog Stampede Blue but I believe Klecko has previously only played fullback in goal line situations. It should be interesting to hear if the Eagles plan on playing him the same 30% of offensive snaps that Thomas Tapeh played.

Klecko is a local guy who born in Colts Neck, NJ and went to college at Temple. He also has 3 superbowl rings(Pats x2, Colts). His father is former Jets great Joe Klecko.

Klecko is most famous for catching the game tying TD in the 2006 AFC Championship game where his Colts beat the Patriots(his former team) en route to a superbowl title.
