Former Philadelphia Eagles tight end James Casey is in the news. After being released by the Denver Broncos a couple weeks ago, Casey is now working out for the Carolina Panthers, according to several reports.

Hey, wait a minute ... the Eagles play the Panthers this week. Clearly this is some sort of attempt by Carolina to get some extra insight on Philadelphia's offense. It's obvious that the 5-0 Panthers, who will be playing at home, are looking for any advantage to stop the dangerous threat of Sam Bradford and Philadelphia's offense.
Jokes aside, the Eagles themselves might be guilty of (perfectly legal) espionage as well. Last week the Eagles worked out former Panthers offensive lineman Brian Folkerts. Folkerts spent a combined 26 games on Carolina's roster in 2013 and 2014.
Sunday night's game will definitely be determined by which player is the better spy. Who do you have, Casey or Folkerts?
UPDATE: The Panthers are really bringing in the big guns here. It also appears they worked out Bradley Fletcher!
