The Eagles Have Let Another Player Get Away From Them

One thing is for certain when the Eagles take the field next year, the Eagles will be hardly recognizable. Yes, that's right, the Eagles have lost yet another player. Tra Thomas has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguears. From CSN Philly

The Tra Thomas-Jon Runyan era has officially ended for the Eagles.

The Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday agreeed to terms with Thomas, who is expected to sign later in the day.

Runyan, an unrestricted free agent who is recovering from major knee surgery, and Thomas have started a franchise record 134 regular season games together.

Now the Eagles either will move Shawn Andrews or Todd Herremans from guard to tackle or add another tackle – most likely through the draft. Andrews’ brother Stacy most likely will become the starting right tackle.
And while this story is not exactly heartbreaking like the Brian Dawkins was, Thomas will be missed. While not necessarily a great player, Thomas was solid. The thing that kept him from being great was that it always seemed like that he got called for holding at the worst possible times. Good luck in Jacksonville Tra William Tra Thomas!
