New approaches to old problems

Now here's an interesting approach to brining in a fullback, something we discussed briefly yesterday.

The Eagles, those wacky Eagles, have signed free agent DT Dan Klecko to compete for the fullback job. That's not a typo, which is something of a minor miracle in and of itself for a hunt and peck typist such as myself. Klecko is 5'11" 275 lbs, which would make him a beast of fullback.

Klecko sat out last season after being cut by the Colts. He made his presence known and probably gave someone in Philly the idea when he caught a TD pass in the AFC Championship that put the Colts in the Super Bowl a year ago.


Could this be the WR we've been looking for? The Redskins waived 25-year-old Ole Miss product Mike Espy. Espy was well considered by the Gibbs regime in Washington, but ruptured his patellar tendon in his right knee in training camp last summer, ending his season before it even began. According to reports at Rotoworld, Al Saunders might be interested in giving him a look, if he's healthy, in camp this season. Low risk, potential upside, sounds like a good move to me.
