Eagles welcome back DT Derek Landri, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal.

Outstanding. It was looking like Landri wouldn't be back, so this signing comes as a mild surprise, but a very welcomed one. Landri was an excellent role player last season. I don't think this changes the perception that the Eagles could be targeting a DT in the first round of the NFL draft later this month. Like Mike Patterson and Antonio Dixon, Landri plays the "NT" position in the Eagles' Wide 9 scheme, who tries to force the opposing OL to double him by shooting through the C-LG gap. The Eagles remain somewhat thin behind Cullen Jenkins at the "UT" (under-tackle) position that lines up on the RG's outside shoulder, which can lead to 1-on-1 matchups for the UT (typically a more athletic DT) on that guard, and for Jason Babin on the RT.
