The Philadelphia Eagles worked out veteran free agent offensive tackle Cordy Glenn on Friday, according to the NFL’s official transaction wire.

BGN previously wrote about Glenn as a potential addition following news of Andre Dillard’s season-ending injury.

Glenn turns 31 in September and has 95 starts in 97 games played. The veteran left tackle most recently made five starts in six games with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. PFF had him graded 36th out of 89 tackles. Could be worth checking in.

The Eagles’ left tackle situation is currently looking dicey. The team should really just pay Jason Peters to move back over there but it’s unclear if they’ll actually do that. Matt Pryor has been lining up at left tackle in practice and that hasn’t been going well.

The Eagles could sign Glenn to start for them while keeping Peters at right guard. That scenario would move Pryor back to being the top backup at guard and tackle.

Or the Eagles could (and should) pay Peters to play left tackle, have Pryor start at right guard, and sign Glenn to be Peters’ backup. Pryor and Jordan Mailata aren’t very inspiring backup tackle options.

The Eagles bringing in Glenn doesn’t necessarily guarantee that they’ll sign him but free agent visits aren’t meant to be about mere casual interest these days given the COVID-19 climate. Of course, if the Eagles sign Glenn, they’ll have to make a spot for him on their 53-man roster. Cuts are due in by 4:00 PM Eastern on Saturday, September 5.

Stay tuned for more updates on this situation.
