The Associated Press reports Philadelphia Eagles TE Matt Schobel could end up in two tight-end sets with Philadelphia Eagles TE L.J. Smith. "They remind me of a couple of situations, (former Packer Mark) Chmura and Keith Jackson in Green Bay and Brent Jones and Greg Clark in San Francisco," Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. "L.J. and Matt kind of remind me of that type of situation, where you can put some heat of the defense, putting them on the same side, splitting them out wide, or one tight and one in the slot.
