Klecko is a FB. Klecko is a DT. Klecko is a FB. But is Klecko still a FB? Not really sure anymore after the Eagles announced today the signing of free agent FB Kyle Eckel. Never heard of Eckel, you aren't alone (played 12 games for the Patriots in 2007).
So going into Week 8 of the 2008 season have the Eagles finally resolved the FB question? We shall see, but at least this guy actually has a FB background. If nothing else this shows that the Eagles are headed in the right direction.
I am sure that there are a bunch of people bitching about how this is yet another example of the Eagles going cheap, scouring the trash heap for a bargain. But not so quick guys. Weren't we saying the same things about the late season acquisitions of the Phillies and we all saw how that turned out.
And maybe there is such thing a karma. To sign Eckel the Eagles waived J.R. Reed. J.R. was last seen showing his love for the Tampa Bay Rays by sporting his Upton jersey. Bad things happen when you go rooting against our Phillies!
