Well there goes the hope of having him. Philly has a good D Line, I guess they want him as backup for when Kearse goes down, he always gets injured so they gotta be prepared

Eagles sign veteran DT

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Eagles signed veteran defensive tackle Kimo von Oelhoffen to a one-year contract Sunday and placed defensive tackle Ian Scott on the minor injured reserve list.

The 36-year-old von Oelhoffen was released by the New York Jets as part of their final roster cutdown.

A sixth-round selection in the 1994 draft by Cincinnati, von Oelhoffen has recorded 395 tackles, 26 1/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries in 192 career games with the Bengals (1994-99), the Pittsburgh Steelers (2000-05) and the Jets (2006). He has played in 105 consecutive regular and postseason contests.

von Oelhoffen's most productive season came in 2003 with the Steelers, when he tallied 40 tackles and eight sacks.

Meanwhile, Scott will be released by the Eagles when he is deemed healthy.

He will not be a backup in that line. He will be a pure starter for the year. If they do not start him then they still suffer against the run. There run defense sucks.. Von can help them there.

I think Kearse is already out.

I wouldn't have minded seeing him back in orange and black, but Chris Henry probably would've shot him.

Why would he do that? He's already suspended.

Why would he do all the stuff that caused him to be suspended in the first place? Nobody knows.

Anyway, good to see Kimo playing DT again...was he playing DT or DE in New York?
