Younger Matthews Gets Starting Nod In Philadelphia
Casey Matthews, a fourth-round draft pick and Clay’s younger brother, is in a good position to start at middle linebacker for the [intlink id=”374″ type=”category”]Philadelphia Eagles[/intlink].
Matthews was listed as the starter on the Eagles first depth chart, which was released today. He’s been with the first-team defense since camp opened.
Although nothing is written in stone, Matthews’ chances of remaining the starter look solid. Greg Lloyd and Brandon Peguese are the second- and third-team middle linebackers.
Lloyd is a seventh-round draft pick and Peguese was signed as an undrafted free agent.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
