    The Texans took DeMeco Ryans off the field on third downs last season, but the Eagles see their new middle linebacker as a three down player. In fact, coach Andy Reid tells me Ryans has a “pretty good feelâ€￾ for nickel play, as well as the smarts, intangibles and leadership for the position. And the Eagles are covered in case Ryans struggles. If need be, the team can use Casey Matthews, Brian Rolle or Keenan Clayton in that role. The Eagles believe Ryans will be more comfortable returning to a 4-3 defense, which he played for most of his life before Wade Phillips’ arrival in Houston.

    That signing is exactly what the eagles needed. If addresses their most glaring weakness.

    Eager to see how they plan on using Chaney. I really think the kid is going to be a big time player.
