Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer spoke to former Eagle and current Ram Quintin Mikell about the speculation regarding Steve Spagnuolo coming to Philadelphia to run the defense. McLane gave the cliff notes on twitter.
Spoke to formersafety Quintin Mikell this morning. He had something interesting things to say about Steve Spagnulo, his former coach in St. Louis, about the
#Eagles DC job. Q said he spoke to Spags about the possibility and he said that he "wasn't sure if it was in the cards." Still, Mikell endorsed the move and said that he felt Spags missed calling plays, something he didn't so as the Rams head coach. "That's why I don't think he would be against it," Mikell said.
He says he'll have a full story with more in a bit. We'll link to that when it comes out.
