Eagles tight end Clay Harbor reportedly moving to outside linebacker
Eagles tight end Clay Harbor is making a temporary move to rush outside linebacker, according to a report from Bob Grotz of the Delaware County Daily Times.
The move comes as a result of the Eagles putting a new priority on the tight end position, which explains the additions of James Casey via free agency and Zach Ertz via last month's draft.
Those acquisitions are joining a tight end corps that already featured Brent Celek and Harbor.
Harbor is seemingly the odd man out of the equation with only 46 career receptions for 421 yards and four touchdowns.
The Eagles seem to need some extra help at outside linebackers as they are in the process of converting two conventional defensive ends — Trent Cole and Brandon Graham — to that position.
The learning curve for both Cole and Graham has reportedly been somewhat steep so far.
