Source: Eagles Likely To Sign Center Vallos

With Jason Kelce sidelined, the Eagles will will bring in veteran center Steve Vallos for a visit Tuesday and are likely to sign him, a source confirmed to Tim McManus.

Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com was the first to report the expected move.

Vallos spent training camp with the Birds, but was let go when the team cut its roster down to 53. He had been battling with Dallas Reynolds for the backup job at Lehigh.

Vallos, 28, was originally a seventh-round pick by the Seahawks back in 2007. He’s started eight games in his career, but those came in 2008 and 2009. Vallos spent 2010 and 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.

Against the Ravens, Reynolds saw his first NFL action and played well (offensive line game review here).

As for Kelce, he’ll be out a minimum of four-to-six weeks and could be done for the season. Details on his timetable right here.
