Updated: Rocky signs with Philly

Update [2008-3-24 15:36:42 by JasonB]:Rocky signs a one year deal.

Free agent linebacker Rocky Boiman visited the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday and was impressed enough to sign a one-year deal. The 6-4, 236-pound linebacker has played in 86 career games with Indianapolis (2006-07) and Tennessee (2002-05). Last year, Boiman saw action in all 16 games (7 starts) for the Colts, registering 64 tackles and two interceptions. He was a 4th-round draft choice of the Titans in 2002.

No, not that Rocky...  Rocky Boiman

The Eagles are hosting linebacker Rocky Boiman on a free agent visit today. He will speak with the media at 4 p.m. at the Nova Care Complex.

Boiman (6-4, 236 pounds) has played six seasons in the NFL, the last two with the Colts. He spent his first four season with the Tennessee Titans.

Boiman, a Notre Dame product, had a career-high 64 tackles last season and he had two interceptions.

Last year season Boiman, 28, had seven starts.

He was a 4th-round draft choice of the Titans in 2002.

With Gocong/Bradley/Gaither the presumed starters and Akeem Jordan sitting on the bench, it would make sense that the Eagles would be looking for some veteran depth in the LB corps.

As it stands now Gaither is the senior member of that unit with a season and a half worth of starting experience.
