Eagles Grab Wang

Posted: February 15, 2013 in Uncategorized


This is hard to swallow. Apparently, the Eagles did not think having a Cox, a Peters, and two Johnsons was satisfying enough. Philadelphia has reportedly agreed to a 2-year contract with free agent T Ed Wang.

With Chip Kelly in the fold, there have been plenty of queries as to what adjustments he would make to the team’s lines to prepare for his patented read-option offense. It appears he is looking to add some girth to the front. Wang is big, standing erect at 6’5, 315 pounds, according to NFL.com. A former Buffalo Bill, Wang played his college ball at Virginia Tech. When the Eagles saw the opportunity to land Wang, they jumped on it.

Training camp is certainly going to be interesting. Does Wang have what it takes to penetrate the 53-man roster? Or will he fail in his quest to reach the promised land and make a limp exit? One thing is for sure. Practice is going to be one heck of a show. The penetration of Cox going up against the size of Wang will be a true pleasure for sports enthusiasts to watch.
