Eagles Sign Center David Molk to Futures Contract

Kent Horner

David Molk could provide competition at backup center.

Center David Molk, standing at 6-1 and 300 lbs, is the latest player the Eagles have signed to a futures/reserve contract. Earlier in the week, the Eagles made two separate rounds of futures signings.

The Eagles have showed interest in Molk before. They worked him out earlier in the year leading up to their Week 2 matchup against the Chargers (espionage!). Molk was a 7th round pick by San Diego in the 2012 NFL Draft. He played in 12 games for the Chargers in 2012 before being released prior to the 2013 season.

Molk has a bit of an assertive reputation. Prior to the 2012 NFL Draft, Molk was sure he was one of the best centers in his draft class. It's worth noting Molk put up 41 bench press reps at the 2012 NFL Combine, which is the most ever by a center.


"The fact they could consider any center better than me is pretty stupid"

[...]

"I have skills [Peter Konz] doesn’t have. Obviously, my strength is far better, I’m faster, I would say I’m smarter. Obviously, he’s an intelligent person, I’ve talked to him, but I just think I have a technique that’s unmatched."

[...]

"[Mike Brewster] is nowhere near me as a player."

You can't say Molk lacks confidence.

The Eagles are more than fine when it comes to their starting center Jason Kelce, but the depth behind him is questionable. Backup center Julian Vandervelde is a converted guard who the Eagles drafted in the fifth round of the 2011 draft. Molk could challenge Vandervelde for the backup center spot this offseason.
