Are the Philadelphia Eagles Linebackers Too Young?

The Eagles currently have 8 linebackers on their roster. Combined, the 8 players have 8 years of NFL experience!

Rocky Boiman, a journeyman back-up, leads the group with 6 years of NFL experience. Unfortunately his career high in tackles is 54. The Eagles better hope that none of the starters go down with an injury.

The projected starters at linebacker are Stewart Bradley, Omar Gaither, and Chris Gocong. Combined the starters have 4 years of NFL experience. Bradley the starting middle linebacker has 1 career start. That is not a typo, 1 career start.

An important reserve will be Akeem Jordan. Jordan too is short on experience, having only 1 year of NFL experience and 1 career start. The other reserves include Joe Mays, Justin Roland, and Andy Studebaker. Each player is a rookie, making their combined NFL experience 0 years!

Is it too late to bring back Takeo Spikes?
