Eagles Worked Out Centers J.D. Walton & Lemuel Jeanpierre

The Philadelphia Eagles recently worked out free agents centers J.D. Walton and Lemuel Jeanpierre, according to Howard Balzer.

Walton, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos back in 2010. He spent three years with the team before be was waived and later claimed by the Redskins.

The Giants wound up signing him to a two-year, $5 million contract that included $3 million guaranteed back in March of last year, but he was released one year into the agreement.

Walton most recently played for the Dolphins, but was among their final roster cuts.

In 2014, Walton appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and was rated by Pro Football Focus rated as the No. 38 center out of 41 qualifying players last year.

Jeanpierre, 26, originally signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina back in 2010. However, he was unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason was placed on waivers.

The Seahawks later signed him to their practice squad before adding him to their active roster in January of 2011. Last year, the Seahawks gave Jeanpierre a one-year extension only to release a few weeks back.

In 2014, Jeanpierre appeared in six games for the Seahawks and played a total of 227 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. Although, he had a poor rating overall, due to his struggles as a run-blocker.
