Teams eyeballing Reggie Brown

The Eagles scratched Reggie Brown for the Panthers game but not necessarily because they are about to trade him.

Yes, Brown has drawn interest from teams seeking to upgrade the wide receiver position according to a source.

The scratch basically is because the roster is loaded with seven wide receivers, and Brown isn't as proficient at playing special teams as the guys active, although rookie Jeremy Maclin hasn't lit the world on fire. The Birds also scratched rookie wide receiver Brandon Gibson.

Sooner or later the Eagles are going to need Brown this season, assuming of course he's not dealt. The wide receiver position has an extremely high attrition rate,

The Eagles also deactivated safety Sean Jones, middle linebacker Joe Mays (shoulder), offensive linemen Shawn Andrews (back), Mike McGlynn and Todd Herremans (foot), and defensive end Jason Babin.
