Free agent quarterbacks Terrelle Pryor and Thaddeus Lewis were not the only players that the Philadelphia Eagles brought in for a visit last week. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan, the Eagles also worked out free agent cornerback Roc Carmichael.

Carmichael, a former Eagles player, has been on the market since being released by Philadelphia in late August. The 26-year old defensive back really struggled in preseason and hasn't had an opportunity to work in the NFL since.

The Eagles originally signed Carmichael off of Houston's practice squad early during the 2013 season. He remained on the roster until Philadelphia parted ways with him during final cuts.

It does not appear that a Carmichael signing is imminent. Philadelphia is likely just checking up on a former player.

The Eagles already have five cornerbacks on their roster. Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher are starters on the outside while Brandon Boykin is the team's nickel cornerback. Nolan Carroll II serves as depth and also plays in the team's dime package. Rookie Jaylen Watkins has only been active a few times this season.

BGN interviewed Carmichael during the season last year. Listen here.

UPDATE: So much for a signing not being imminent. The Eagles signed Carmichael and placed Earl Wolff on injured reserve.
