The Eagles work out Jon Runyan

There has been a Jon Runyan sighting in Philadelphia! Runyan, who anchored the Eagles offensive line for 9 years, was back in Philly today working out in the NovaCare Complex. While still recovering from offseason knee surgery, Runyan has been working out for a few teams around the league with the hopes of getting back on the field.

Many thought it was only a matter of time before Runyan returned to the Eagles. While this workout could be just to get Big Jon some time on the field, you have to think the Eagles are seriously considering bringing him back. Not only would Runyan supply some much-needed leadership to the team but he would also be great insurance should Todd Herremans be out for several weeks and should Shawn Andrews not be ready.

With all the uncertainty surrounding the Eagles offensive line this preseason, bringing Runyan back would really help to solidify things. At this point, no one knows if he is even ready to play football again, but if he is, you can bet the Eagles will try to bring him back.
