Due diligence.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles worked out four free agent players earlier this week. This isn’t unusual; it’s normal practice for teams to host these visits in order to have an emergency list of available players ready to go if injury occurs.

Here’s a look at the players the Eagles were working out, via Howard Balzer.

Center

Anthony Fabiano - 24 years old. 6-1, 303 pounds. Undrafted in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Harvard. Played four games and made one start with the Cleveland Browns last season. Spent a week on Washington’s practice squad earlier this month.

Cornerback

D.J. Killings - Great name. 22 years old. 5-10, 187 pounds. Undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft out of UCF. Had seven tackles and two passes defensed in the preseason. Waived by New England via injury settlement earlier this month. Here’s a good article with more info on Killings. His college teammates referred to him as a “genius.”

Damian Swann - 24 years old. 6-0, 189 pounds. Fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Georgia. Played in seven games and made two starts with the New Orleans Saints in 2015. Finished with 20 tackles and four passes defensed. Suffered multiple concussions. Struggled in the preseason this summer.

Offensive tackle

Givens Price - Great name. 22 years old. 6-4, 310 pounds. Undrafted in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Nebraska. Spent most of his rookie season on the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad before appearing in one game with them.

I wouldn’t make too much out of these workouts. The Eagles are just evaluating some depth options. Maybe we’ll see one of these players pop up on Philadelphia’s practice squad at some point this season.
