Eagles To Sign OL Stefen Wisniewski
The Eagles are expected to sign offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski to a one-year deal, a source confirmed.
Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports was first with the report.
The 27-year-old Wisniewski (6-3, 295) started 77 games over five years for the Raiders and Jaguars — mostly at center. With Jason Kelce slotted into the starting center role for the Eagles, Wisniewski will likely compete for a starting guard spot and at the very least can provide depth at both the guard and center positions.
According to Pro Football Focus, Wisniewski had the third-highest pass-blocking efficiency among centers last season, yielding just 13 total pressures in his lone year in Jacksonville.
The Penn State product garnered interest from multiple teams — including the Steelers. He took the weekend to mull it over before deciding on Philly.
Howie Roseman said the offensive line was a top priority this season, and he’s backed that up to this point. The Eagles also signed guard Brandon Brooks to a five-year, $40 million deal early in the free agency period to help bolster a shaky interior line. They will likely keep adding to the o-line in April’s draft.
