Fox Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting that DE Aaron Kampman is on his way to Philadelphia for a visit. This contradicts earlier reports that Kampman was headed to Seattle.
Kampman was widely considered to be the second best pass rusher on the market after Julius Peppers. The biggest question mark with Kampman is his health. He went down late last November with an ACL tear. The other concern with Kampman would be his declining stats in recent years, however most NFL people consider that to be a function of his struggles with the Packers' transition to a 3-4. As a 4-3 end, where he is best suited, Kampman was one of the better ends in football collecting 27.5 sacks from 06-08.
If Kampman is healthy, he would be a significant upgrade to the Eagles' pass rush. Coming off an ACL tear however, that is a big if.
[Update by JasonB, 03/05/10 1:15 PM EST ] National Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh is now reporting that Kampman "has changed his mind and will not visit with the Philadelphia Eagles."
[Update by JasonB, 03/05/10 1:18 PM EST ] Jay Glazer is also saying that Kampman will not visit yet.
Correction on kampan, birds have had talks w his rep but he is NOT visiting at this point.
