It might not take too long for the veteran players the Philadelphia Eagles released this week to find new work.
According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, Trent Cole is set to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 32-year-old was officially released by the Eagles on Wednesday after spending 10 years in Philadelphia. Cole is expected to draw interest from other teams as well. The San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets are rumored to have interest.
Cole isn't the only veteran getting attention. Former Eagles cornerback Cary Williams is reportedly visiting with the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle will be in need of a new outside starting cornerback if Byron Maxwell leaves in free agency, which is expected to happen. It's possible Maxwell could end up on the Eagles while Williams signs in Seattle. How about that?
In other former Eagles news, James Casey has visited with a number of teams but hasn't signed a new contract yet. Veteran offensive guard Todd Herremans appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic earlier in the week and said a few teams are interested in him but he didn't get into specifics.
It'll be interesting to see where these players land. Some of them might be able to find a new home before free agency begins on Tuesday, March 10.
