Eagles Work Out Receiver, Linebacker

The Eagles worked out wide receiver David Gettis and linebacker Nathan Williams, a source confirmed.

Gettis (6-3, 217), a sixth-round pick by the Panthers in 2010, had 37 catches for 508 yards and three scores his rookie year. A torn ACL in August of 2011 derailed his sophomore campaign, and he was bothered by an injured hamstring in 2012. He was released with an injury settlement earlier this month after hurting his hamstring again this preseason.

Williams ( 6-3, 240) had 12 sacks and 24 tackles for a loss at Ohio State. He underwent microfracture surgery on his knee in 2011 but was able to play for the Buckeyes in 2012.

The outside linebacker signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent back in April and spent some time with the Dolphins this summer before being released.

The Eagles brought Gettis and Williams in to see where they are physically. No signings are imminent.

Adam Caplan was first with the report.
