As most of you know (and if you didnt you do now) Will Witherspoon was released last week by the Eagles and is currently a free agent. We've already made a splash by signing Dunta Robinson. Do you think it would be reasonable to take a look at Will Witherspoon prior to the draft? He looked great in Philly when he filled in there when they had injuries. I believe he would be an instant upgrade over Nicholas, and potentially even Peterson. I think we all believe linebacker is a position of need and Witherspoon is only 29. I'd say he has 3 maybe even 4 good years left in him. He would be excellent depth none the less.

I think he is better than Nicholas, but Nicholas is cheap and still developing. Peterson is better than Witherspoon IMO, but Peterson will probably not be starting for us after this season. If it was back up money I think it would be a no brainer to bring in Witherspoon- and he should be allowed to compete for both starting OLB spots. OR, if the staff really likes him, he could be brought in to back up Peterson for a year and then take over. Unlike some, I just don't see him unseating Peterson this year though.
