Daryn Colledge expected to meet with Eagles this week

The draft is done and undrafted rookies are landing with teams around the league, leaving teams to kick the tires on the remaining veterans on the open market to further fill out their 90-man rosters for the rest of the offseason.

Offensive lineman Daryn Colledge is one of those veterans and Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that he’ll be paying a visit to the Eagles this week. Colledge is expected to meet with the team on Wednesday and Thursday.

Colledge started every game for the Cardinals over the last three seasons and has played in all 128 regular season games his team has played since joining the Packers for the 2006 season. Colledge has played a variety of positions on the line over that span, which would make him a handy backup for an Eagles team that is returning all of their starting  offensive linemen from last season.

The Eagles did not draft any offensive linemen and signed four undrafted rookie free agent blockers.

    Camp fodder. The Eagles O-line went from worst to first last year, and still has lots of depth.

    Great guy and asset to any team. I loved him in Cardinal red and he’s been a major stablizing force in this lockeroom. Unfortunately, as a veteran he not only is a victim of organizational politics but also a casualty of the Cap. Hopefully, he will go to a franchise who isn’t playing catchup for the misspending of past GMs but that is the way of the NFL and the CBA didn’t do anything for these guys who have contributed so much. This is a player fans will miss in Cardinal land, but we only pay the salaries for the guys making the decisions,lol! Good luck Daryn!

    would be a solid depth signing, he is a born Alaskan tough guy.

    Great move assuming small financial commitment

    Love the move, assuming they do not commit too much financially

    Would be great to have him, considering we didn’t draft or signed a linemen yet this off season, besides our own.

    You can never have too much depth at the OL positions

    Really getting some good vibes about the way the Eagles are handling business

    Thought Colledge was a great asset for the Packers out of college. Too bad the Packers couldn’t keep him, but he will be good for his next team.

    hope this doesn’t mean mathis is going to be moved; but lot of teams need line help and the eagles could use help everywhere on the defense

    The guy has had 2 contracts in the NFL and started every game for years.

    There has to be a place for a durable 7 year veteran starter in the league.

    He just will never make as much as he did on his 2nd contract.

    Another Ted Thompson draft bust.
