Eagles snap to it, woo center Everitt

March 05, 1997|By Gary Lambrecht

The Philadelphia Eagles made a late run at free-agent center Steve Everitt yesterday, when coach Ray Rhodes and senior vice president Joe Banner flew to West Palm Beach, Fla., where they met throughout the day with Everitt, his agent, John Macik, and Everitt's father, Michael.

The Eagles were thought to have fallen out of contention for the four-year veteran, who has listened to offers from the Ravens, Eagles and New York Jets. Everitt visited the Eagles two weeks ago, when they offered him a six-year, $11.5 million contract.

As of last night, Everitt remained unsigned.
