The Philadelphia Eagles are currently among the teams “expected to have some interest” in free agent linebacker Shaquille Leonard, according to a report from NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Shefty also named the Dallas Cowboys as a potential landing spot for the former Indianapolis Colts star.

Leonard was unexpectedly released by the Colts on Tuesday, and BGN wrote about the possibility of the Eagles reuniting with Nick Sirianni.

He cleared waivers and is now free to sign with any team.

Should the Eagles pursue Leonard? If he’s willing to step into a rotation role, why not?

He’s clearly not the same player he was before.

But the Eagles’ current top backup to Zach Cunningham and Nicholas Morrow is Christian Ellis, and they clearly don’t trust the defense.

Of course, Leonard’s departure from Indy likely had something to do with dissatisfaction with his limited playing time.

So the Eagles may not be a good fit for what he’s looking for.

I don’t think the Birds want to suddenly bench Cunningham or Morrow, who have played reasonably well relative to very low expectations.

If Leonard wants to chase a ring, the Eagles would be a great place to start. Certainly smarter than the Dallas team. and he seems to realize that.
