The Eagles worked out former Saints linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, according to a source who spoke with ESPN.com’s Field Yates (on Twitter). Ellerbe could help fill in for linebacker Jordan Hicks after he went down with an Achilles injury.

Ellerbe, who turns 32 at the end of November, is in search of his fourth NFL team since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2009. Ellerbe has shown his talent on the field, but injuries have slowed him over the years. The veteran has played in just 77 games out of 128 possible regular season contests with the Ravens, Dolphins, and Saints.
