Jon Runyan Works Out with Eagles

via nflbook.files.wordpress.com

According to ESPN's Brian Seltzer, the Eagles have just confirmed that former offensive tackle Jon Runyan was in town today for a workout:

The Eagles worked out former right tackle Jon Runyan before this morning's practice. Head coach Andy Reid said he wanted to see where Runyan was at in his rehab.

Runyan underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee following the 2008 season, and was recently cleared to play by Dr. James Andrews. Runyan spent nine seasons with the Eagles and started 192 straight regular-season games, the longest active streak among offensive linemen

The Eagles currently have ten offensive linemen on their roster.

Since his contract expired at the end of the 2008 season, speculation has swirled as to weather his knee injury would prevent him from returning to Philadelphia. However, after his successful surgery, no fewer than four teams are reportedly interested in the 35-year-old tackle.

According to Arrowhead Pride, one of those teams is the Kansas City Chiefs. A third team Runyan has reportedly already turned down (Lions? Raiders?). The fourth team has been confirmed as the Buffalo Bills.

Runyan's return would give the Eagles great insurance at the right tackle should Shawn Andrews go down. Andrews has already missed today's practice due to lingering back problems. Additionally, backup Winston Justice just still hasn't inspired enough confidence with his spotty play. The question is, would the Eagles be willing to give up on The Great Justice Project for a one season run with a 35-year-old tackle? That remains to be seen.
