Bob Grotz of the DelcoTimes has an interesting post up tonight which says Clay Harbor will get some reps at OLB. The full story will be in Friday’s paper.
Here is the key quote from Harbor:
“I’m trying a little outside linebacker, actually, to be more versatile,” Harbor said. “We’ll see how it works out.”
Harbor was asked about this on Twitter and responded to a fan.
@phillyboyintn haha just learning some LB for emergency situations and versatility purposes

Harbor could fit as a LB, in theory. He has good size at 6-3, 255. He is athletic. He is tough and physical. Harbor hasn’t panned out so far at TE, but it isn’t due to lack of raw physical ability.
Let’s find out if this is just an odd experiment or a full time move before we make too much of it.
