Thu, 13 Jul 2006 20:03:35 -0700

Zach Berman, of PhiladelphiaEagles.com, reports the Philadelphia Eagles will have open competitions for both of their outside linebacker positions heading into training camp this season.

Barber is a former Eagles player and is familiar with their defensive scheme. The competition for the strong-side linebacker position includes incumbent starter LB Dhani Jones. Third-round draft pick LB Chris Gocong will try and unseat Jones for the SAM linebacker spot but must make the transition from being a college defensive end to a NFL outside linebacker. Defensive coordinator Jim Johnson, also, has not ruled out moving ILB Mark Simoneau or sixth-round draft pick ILB Omar Gaithers to the outside linebacker spot.
