LMFAO, PHILLY JUST GOT PWNED HARD SON!!

PWNAGE!!

Seriously I would be shocked to see him get much playing time, he's just there for mentoring, and they needed a new chef/cooking tips, Reid needs to eat, he's a growing man.

Kimo is a cancer to NFL Defenses... And after one year of starting for the Eagles, the whole Eagles D-Line will need Kimo-Treatment.

The Eagles Defense will need to go through Kimo-Treatment for a year with him starting on that D-Line...

Kimo is a Cancer to Defenses and the best player on the opposing team

Kimo may be many things(or..not many things, whichever)--but he is not a cancer. He's old, washed up, and not capable of a full-time starting job but if a team needs a backend DE he may actually be decent coming in sparingly.

He's known as being a good locker-room presence, and while theres no place for him here in NY, there are plenty of teams that would take a 1-yr flier for a vet, always are.

You have GOT to be kidding me. Please say you are.

Nope. Saw that when someone posted the pre-season poll in the college sports forum. As of that moment, I will never again acknowledge the coaches poll as an actual poll. Its like Dolphins fans...people say they exist, but they're not really there.

Eagles signed Kimo.

Eagles add bulk, sign von Oelhoffen to one-year deal

Moving to add much-needed size and flexibility to a defensive front that struggled against the run at times in the preseason, the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday signed veteran lineman Kimo von Oelhoffen to a one-year contract.

The deal came just one day after von Oelhoffen was released by the New York Jets as part of their mandatory reduction to the 53-player roster limit. Although von Oelhoffen started in all 16 games for the Jets in 2006, his first and only season with the team, the New York coaches wanted to go with younger players on their depth chart.

To create a roster spot for von Oelhoffen, 36, the Eagles placed four-year veteran defensive tackle Ian Scott on injured reserve. The intent is to release Scott, signed as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason after playing the first four years of his career with the Chicago Bears, when he recovers from a minor knee injury.

At first glance, the addition of von Oelhoffen might appear to be an awkward fit for the Philadelphia defense. The 13-year veteran has played mostly at end in 3-4 fronts over the last several years and the Eagles deploy a 4-3 base defense.

But the 299-pound von Oelhoffen will provide the Eagles some size at end, a commodity they currently lack at the position, on running downs. And he can move inside at times and log some snaps at tackle as well. The Eagles were 15th in the league versus the run in preseason, but seemed to lack toughness upfront. Philadelphia views von Oelhoffen as a rotational player, and coordinator Jim Johnson will try to maximize his productivity by closely monitoring his playing time.

In addition, von Oelhoffen should give the Eagles another veteran locker room leader; one who might help replace middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, released last week, in that role.

Originally a sixth-round pick of Cincinnati in 1994, von Oelhoffen played six seasons (1994-99) for the Bengals, before signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a free agent in 2000. He became a fixture in the Steelers' 3-4 front, was a part of the team's Super Bowl XL title in 2005, but then signed with the Jets in 2006.

In 189 games, the former Boise State star has 354 tackles, 26
