Eagles jump into the Chester Pitts chase
The Seahawks and the Vikings reportedly are interested in free-agent offensive lineman Chester Pitts, who is recovering from microfracture surgery after 113 starts in Houston from 2002 through 2009.
Now, there’s another team at the table.
According to Jordan Raanan of CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles are interested in Pitts.
“I have spoken to a ton of teams about Chester. The Eagles are one of them,” agent Andrew Kessler told Raanan via e-mail. “But I wouldn’t say he is any more likely to wind up there than anywhere else.”
Eventually, Pitts will work out for any and all interested teams, and then he’ll pick his next one.
“In July, when he is 100 percent and ready to go, we’ll see who is the most interested then,” Kessler said. “Until then, no way of really knowing.”
Per Raanan, the Lions and 49ers also are interested in Pitts, who has started every game in Texans history.
