The Philadelphia Eagles are one of multiple teams who have shown interest in free agent defensive lineman Jared Odrick this offseason, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.

It’s unclear if the Eagles are still interested in Odrick. One would think they wouldn’t be after swapping third round picks with the Baltimore Ravens in order to acquire Timmy Jernigan in a trade.

Then again, the Eagles could have a need for more defensive line depth after Beau Allen suffered a chest/pectoral injury last week. Allen reportedly had successful surgery this week and is expected to be out until September at least. It’s not guaranteed he’ll be back by Week 1.

ESPN reports Odrick, 29, could sign with the Giants as New York looks to replace Johnathan Hankins. The G-Men lost their young, talented starting defensive tackle when Hankins signed a lucrative deal with the Colts on Thursday.

Even if the Eagles don’t end up signing Odrick, this report is something to keep in mind for the future.
