Patterson signed a one-year deal with the Eagles yesterday.
Schobel pulled his hamstring in practice yesterday, leaving the Eagles with only two healthy tight ends, Brent Celek, a rookie, and Lee Vickers, a former defensive end who spent almost the entire 2006 season on the Philadelphia practice squad. L.J. Smith (hernia) and Mike Bartrum (neck) are also injured tight ends.
So the Eagles decided they needed to bring in another tight end. As the fifth quarterback on the roster, Patterson is the one to go.Ouch. And this is right on the heels of his agent telling the Lancaster News that Perry is "certainly athletic enough to work as a wide receiver or a tight end. Since the draft, I talked with other teams about that, sort of putting him in that Kordell Stewart or Antwaan Randle-El mode."
Kordell Stewart isn't on a football team anymore either. Is that's what mode he meant?
