Eagles To Talk To Free Agent Tackle Demetrius Bell

By Spike Eskin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles will bring in free agent left tackle Demetrius Bell this weekend, as a prospect to replace the injured Jason Peters, according to 94WIP’s Howard Eskin.

The Eagles will have some big shoes to fill in the wake of Jason Peters’ ruptured Achilles. Peters, considered the best left tackle in football, could miss significant time during the 2012 season. The injury typically requires a six month recovery period, and often times more for a person the size of Peters.

Even if the Eagles were to move Todd Herremans to left tackle, it still leaves a big hole at right tackle, Michael Vick’s blindside.

Bell has played his entire career for the Buffalo Bills. He is the best free agent left tackle available, according to Eskin.

    Georgia’s Cordy Glenn is a mountain of a man with a truly rare blend of size (6-5½, 345), strength and athleticism who has drawn comparisons to guys like Shawn Andrews and Andre Smith. Glenn played guard for most of his college career before moving to left tackle as a senior and most assumed he would kick back inside at the next level. However a strong showing at tackle during the Senior Bowl week Cordy Glenn | Georgia Bulldogs altered that thought process and there are now many who feel he could survive on the edge.
