Former Panthers LB Dan Connor has signed with the Cowboys, but according to Geoff Mosher he did get an offer from the Eagles. Didn't sound like a particularly aggressive offer... but it was something.
Confirmed: Dan Connor has signed with Dallas. Had one-year offer from Eagles but not competitive with Cowboys' offer.— Geoff Mosher (@geoffmosher) March 15, 2012
If the Eagles were offering a one year deal, they obviously were just hoping to get Connor on the cheap. Dallas obviously sees a little more in him. The interesting takeaway at least is that the Eagles are dabbling in the LB market, although at least as far as this goes, not heavily. Update: Jeff McLane said the Eagles interest in Connor was "always low."
Connor will join his fellow oft-injured ex Nittany Lion Sean Lee in Dallas. He's the Cowboys 6th free agent signing so far this year, the most the team has signed since 2006.
