Former Mountaineer Fullback Owen Schmitt Signs With Eagles

Former Mountaineer great Owen Schmitt has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.  Schmitt was cut earlier this month by the Seattle Seahawks whose new coach Pete Carroll's  offense had no need for a fullback.  Schmitt replaces All-Pro Leonard Weaver whose season was ended by a torn ACL.  Schmitt is one of the most memorable characters ever to be produced by the West Virginia football program.  He should fit right in in Philadelphia.
