    Wilhelm to Eagles

    By Kevin Acee
    August 3, 2009, 7:03 p.m.

    Linebacker Matt Wilhelm, released by the Chargers the week before camp, has agreed to a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Wilhelm played six seasons in San Diego, the last two as a starter.

    The Eagles moved quickly after Stewart Bradley tore his ACL.

    I cannot think of a player more ill-suited for a team. A milk toast linebacker like that going to a vicious D like in Philly. Please. He won't be long for the count there.

    ...My reaction...EXACTLY!!! The Philly defense relies on "all out assault to the ball". Maybe the Eagles were in a "Rooney Rule" bind? They were trying to replace a white LB with another white one :icon_rofl:

    Our scoring chances against the Eggles just got a whole lot better. Good luck in Philly Matt.

    He might be but he won't... If he even makes the Eagles squad they won't bother dressing him for sunday. I had a read of some Eagles boards, they are looking to this guy Joe Mays to step up and take Bradley's spot.

    Speaking of the Eagles, they are streaming their TC live on their homepage...

    I don't know man I think that defense is going to look a lot different with Dawkins gone and yeah signing Matt didn't exactly make them much better.

    I see him being cut, and playing for another team, NOT the Phily defense.
