Eagles Sign Former Charger LB Matt Wilhelm

Wilhelm

In a flurry of roster moves after linebacker Stewart Bradley's season-ending ACL tear, the Eagles have signed yet another veteran linebacker to their roster: Matt Wilhelm. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports:

Wilhelm, 28, spent six seasons with the Chargers after being drafted in the fourth round in 2003. He became the starter in 2007 but started just seven of the Chargers' 18 games last season...Having never lived up to what the Chargers had hoped when they signed him to a five-year, $14 million contract at the end of the 2006 season, Wilhelm was replaced as the starter and ended up splitting time with Tim Dobbins last season.

Wilhelm was cut by the Bolts two weeks ago, and flirted with several teams before agreeing to a one year deal with Philadelphia.

Here are his stats according to ESPN.com:

 

Age: 28

Height: 6'4"

Weight: 245 lbs

SPLIT TOT SOLO AST SACK STF STFY FF BK INT YDS AVG LNG TD PD

Postseason - 2008 7 4 3 0.0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0

 

With Victor Abiamiri, Trevor Laws, Brian Westbrook, Shawn Andrews, and now Stewart Bradley on the Physically Unable to Perform list, the Eagles still have plenty of room on their 80-man training camp roster to try out additional players. It is possible we could see a turnstile of players coming through camp as the Eagles try to add depth to a suddenly thin position.
