Eagles | Simoneau Motivated to Earn Starting Role

Shannon Ryan, of the Philadelphia Enquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles LB Mark Simoneau is currently battling LB Keith Adams for the starting weakside linebacker position this year, but all indications point to Adams as the favorite to land the No. 1 role. However, Simoneau is determined to make it a difficult decision for the coaching staff despite his unfamiliarity with the position. "I would like to be the guy playing every day on defense," Simoneau said. "The situation [at linebacker now] didn't work like that. I'm going to be a professional about it. I'm just looking to help out on the field any way that I can." Simoneau will likely begin the season on special teams.
