Less than a week after being cut by the Eagles, Trent Cole has become a rock star. The long-time Philadelphia pass rusher has several visits lined up before the start of free agency on Tuesday, March 10 and has already visited Tampa Bay, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Cole is expected to meet with the Browns next, according to CSN Philly's Derrick Gunn. However, if it doesn't work out in Cleveland, several reports have linked Cole to Indianapolis and San Francisco. Those last two spots would keep Cole in the 3-4 defense as an outside linebacker, but Caplan believes Cole would be asked to play as a defensive end with the Colts. Caplan also mentions the Arizona Cardinals as a team to watch for Cole.
Cole joined free agency just a little bit earlier than everyone else along with former Eagles tight end James Casey, cornerback Cary Williams and lineman Todd Herremans. Casey has met with several teams, while Herremans has visited the Colts. Williams has also been in popular demand as he has already met with Seattle and has plans to meet with the Jets and Titans.
