Antonio Pierce?

The New York Giants have released middle linebacker Antonio Pierce after five seasons, Pierce confirmed in an e-mail to the Newark Star-Ledger on Thursday. NFC East blog Mosley ESPN.com's Matt Mosley writes about all things NFC East in his division blog.

Blog network: NFL Nation "I'm doing great, feeling great," Pierce wrote in the e-mail. "Looking forward to endless possibilities. Loved every moment as a NY GIANT."

Pierce, who was placed on injured reserve Nov. 30 with a bulging disk, had one season left on the contract he signed as a free agent in 2005. Pierce had 55 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in nine games last season. He led the Giants in tackles the previous three seasons and missed only four regular-season games since leaving the Washington Redskins to join the Giants.

Should the Eagles sign Antonio Pierce to play LB for them? I know he was a Giant but he is still a pretty good linebacker, better than Gocong The downside is that he is 31 and was on IR last year. Since 2004 he has totaled at least 95 tackles a season, except for this past year because he was injured and only played 9 games. Should the Eagles sign him?
