Shawn Andrews moved to tackle

It appears that we may have had our first real bit of news breaking from the Eagles first spring minicamp. According the Inquirer Andy Reid has indicated that he will move two time pro bowl guard Shawn Andrews to right tackle.

Coach Andy Reid indicated that he's leaning toward keeping Shawn at tackle and moving Stacy to right guard, the position the younger Andrews has played since joining the Eagles as a first-round pick in 2004.

"(Stacy) has no hard feelings about it," Shawn Andrews said. "He's excelled at guard. The team didn't say if he was going to play guard or tackle when he first came here, so this is where he is and he's excited to get on the field when he does."

Stacy Andrews has played both guard and tackle in the NFL, so moving from RT(where he played in Cincy last year) to RG shouldn't be a major transition. As for Shawn, he played RT in college and with his athleticism should be a perfect fit there.

Also, there's lots of great photos from minicamp in the gallery!
