We’ve already written this offseason about the Philadelphia Eagles perhaps looking to shake things up at the quarterback position, when reports surfaced indicating that head coach Chip Kelly--who was recently given absolute power to make personnel decisions in Philly--would try to trade up to land Marcus Mariota, who was recruited to and coached at Oregon by Kelly.

Now, they’re reportedly showing interest in Jake Locker. A longtime player agent told that the team would consider Locker when the free agency period begins next month.

Locker, who was at Washington when Kelly was at Oregon, appeared in 30 games in four seasons with the Tennessee Titans after being drafted eighth overall in 2011. He threw 27 touchdown passes and 22 interceptions in that span, and has suffered season-ending injuries in each of the past two seasons.

If the Eagles do bring Locker in, it would almost certainly be as a backup.
