Eagles sign former Jaguars lineman Stefen Wisniewski

New, comments

Stefen Wisniewski has found a new home in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed former Jacksonville Jaguars center Stefen Wisniewski to a one-year contract. The Pittsburgh Steelers were also reportedly in play for the offensive lineman.

With the Eagles already having a sure thing at center with Jason Kelce, where does Wisniewski come into play?

According to Bleeding Green Nation, it seems like he's going to compete for playing time at left guard.

"If he's not starting, Wisniewski potentially could be the team's top backup at both center and guard. The Eagles needed a new backup center after David Molk retired earlier this offseason. This signing is a nice low-risk move for the Eagles. At best, it gives them a competent starter as a position of weakness. At worst, it gives the team some more offensive line depth."

Here's what Philadelphia's starting offensive line potentially looks like for the 2016 season:

Left tackle: Jason Peters
Left guard: Stefen Wisniewski
Center: Jason Kelce
Right guard: Brandon Brooks
Right tackle: Lane Johnson

Wisniewski played in all 16 games for the Jaguars last season.
