Eagles Sign Fullback to a Two-Year Deal

Written By Bob Cunningham On Friday, January 29, 2010

The Eagles have signed a fullback. Fingers crossed...

The Eagles went out and signed a fullback today, just like everyone hoped they would do.

Unfortunately, that fullback was not Leonard Weaver and Philly is still on pins and needles waiting to find out what will happen with the Eagles' Pro Bowl fullback.

Instead, the Eagles signed former Buffalo Bills' fourth round pick, fullback Dwayne Wright, to a two-year deal. At 5'11 and 228 pounds, Wright seems to fit more as a power running back rather than a fullback, so his signing doesn't mean that the Eagles will now let Weaver walk.

With Howie Roseman now on board, I expect that Leonard Weaver will be a top priority, if not the No. 1 priority, of the Eagles for this offseason.

After an offseason last year in which it looked like Weaver would definitely sign with the Eagles, then talks broke down and it took a little while, then the Eagles ramped things up and brought him in, nothing would surprise me this offseason.

The big difference this year, however, is that the Eagles have seen what Weaver can do, and Weaver has seen how good this team can be. It's a match that only seems to make sense, so I have to believe that Weaver will be back.

However, I also believed that Brian Dawkins would be back. I know, I know, it's a situation no one wants to talk about, but if the Eagles believe there is a better option out there, or if the price isn't right, don't be surprised to see Weaver playing elsewhere next season.
