Report: Philly Not Interested in Bringing Back Runyan

via trumpethope19.files.wordpress.com

According to Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer, a team source has indicated that the Eagles are not interested in bringing back offensive tackle Jon Runyan for one more season:

The Eagles were so impressed with Justice's performance in the season opener at Charlotte that a team source said they did not feel the need to re-sign free agent Jon Runyan, who was at the NovaCare Complex last week for a workout in front of Reid, general manager Tom Heckert and offensive-line coach Juan Castillo.

However, in the wake of Shawn Andrews' placement on Injured Reserve, many have begun to question if the Eagles will bring in another offensive lineman to replace him. While Winston Justice seems to be firmly entrenched as a starter, there is still a need for a quality backup. On the official depth chart, there is currently no one listed behind Justice. Second year man King Dunlap is currently the only backup tackle, and is listed behind Jason Peters on the left side. With Todd Herremans, Nick Cole, and Max Jean-Gilles all battling injuries, it is clear that the Eagles need help with their offensive reserves, and quickly. Guards Paul Fanaika and Mike Gibson are currently waiting in the wings on the practice squad, but it seems more likely that the Eagles will look to an experienced free agent to fill the backup right tackle position. The only question that remains is who, if anyone, will they choose?
