Wisniewski was drafted in the second round by the Raiders back in 2011. After missing just three regular season games during his four year stint at Oakland, the Guard signed with the Jaguars where he continued to be a factor in protecting the Quarterback.
Pro Football Focus ranked him 19th out of 39 in his position, but the Eagles need some reinforcements up front, and an experienced player like 27 year old Wisniewski is certainly a good way to go about it.
The Pittsburgh native also visited the Steelers, but later signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal..giving the impression that the Steelers injury concerns could be coming to an end.
Matt Tobin is now off the Free-Agent market having signed his one year tender. Having been with the Eagles since 2013, Tobin played in every game for the Eagles last year amidst their O-Line struggles and will continue to compete for a spot going into 2016.
