Eagles free agency rumors: Philadelphia interested in premier pass rushers

The legal tampering window has opened up as we approach the official start of free agency next week, and it appears that the Philadelphia Eagles will be in the market for a premier pass rusher.

According to Tim McManus of Eagles 24/7, the Eagles could be showing interest in Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson.

Of course, bringing in one of the top pass rushers on the open market will not come cheap for the team and there will be plenty of competition when it comes to signing Johnson, who is expected to be pursued by the Minnesota Vikings.

Be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com leading up to and throughout the free agency period for the latest news and rumors.
