Eagles have revamped their offensive line
Thursday, September 8, 2011
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Protecting Michael Vick is such a concern for the Philadelphia Eagles, they've overhauled their offensive line.
First, Todd Herremans was moved from left guard to right tackle after the third preseason game. Then, rookie Jason Kelce was named the starting center. Lastly, four days before the season opener, first-round pick Danny Watkins lost his starting job at right guard to recently signed Kyle DeVan.
The defending NFC East champions open at St. Louis on Sunday with three new starters on the line and only one of the five -- left tackle Jason Peters -- playing the same position as last year.
