Les Bowen confirms that there are discussions ongoing between the Eagles and free agent LB Stephen Tulloch. However, Bowen’s sources have said that nothing appears to be imminent at this point in time.
According to Schefter, the two parties could have a deal in place at some point in the near future.
It’s worth mentioning that Dave Birkett reported that Tulloch underwent an offseason ankle surgery and was unable to pass a physical on Tuesday.
Eagles have long been speculated as a team to watch for Tulloch, considering that former Lions HC Jim Schwartz is now running the Eagles’ defense.
Tulloch, 31, is a former fourth-round pick of the Titans back in 2006. After five years in Tennessee, Tulloch signed on with the Lions spent another five years in Detroit before being released a few months ago.
In 2015, Tulloch appeared in all 16 games and recorded 108 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble, two recoveries and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 54 linebacker out of 97 qualifying players.
