- Adam Caplan adds that the Eagles also worked out G Willie Beavers, WR Daniel Braverman, and G Dallas Thomas.
The Eagles just lost LB Jordan Hicks for the season last week due to an Achilles injury, so it makes sense that they would be kicking the tires on some available options.
This is actually the first reported interest in Ellerbe since he became available a month ago.
Ellerbe, 31, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2009. After four years in Baltimore, Ellerbe departed for a five-year contract with the Dolphins. However, Miami later traded him to the Saints in return for WR Kenny Stills just a few years into the contract.
The Saints got Ellerbe to a take a pay cut last year to return to the team but they ultimately cut him loose from injured reserve a few weeks into the season.
In 2016, Ellerbe appeared in nine games for the Saints and recorded 44 tackles, four sacks, and two pass defenses.
