Davis Reportedly to Meet Today With Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly are scheduled to meet today with free agent running back Stephen Davis.
Davis, 32, has rushed for more than 7,800 yards in 10 seasons with the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers.
A Philadelphia television station first reported that Davis could work out for the Eagles as soon as today, and the Philadelphia Daily News reported that Davis arrived in town Sunday night. The Daily News reported that the Redskins also have expressed interest in Davis.
He has had knee problems and averaged only 3.1 yards per carry last season for the Panthers, but the Eagles need part-time help at running back. Starter Brian Westbrook is sidelined, likely for the remainder of the preseason, by a sprained foot. And even when Westbrook is healthy, the Eagles lack the sort of punishing runner who can grind out the tough yards between the tackles, as Davis once did for the Redskins and Panthers.
