Free agent LB Jamar Chaney worked out for the Bucs this week.

Chaney, 27, was released by the Eagles ahead of final cuts this summer, and then had a cup of coffee with the Falcons earlier this season. Fellow free-agent linebackers Alex Albright, Gerald McRath, and Justin Cole also worked out for Tampa.

Falcons signed LB Jamar Chaney.

The injury-ravaged Falcons need help all over their defense, and are counting on Chaney and Omar Gaither to shore up their linebacker corps. Chaney was not an effective player last season, but is a fit for the Falcons' 4-3 defense, and has 23 games of starting experience.

Eagles released LB Jamar Chaney.

26-year-old Chaney made 23 starts over the past three seasons, but was not deemed roster-worthy by the Eagles' new coaching staff, which is implementing a 4-3. Perhaps old pal Andy Reid will give Chaney another shot in Kansas City.

Jamar Chaney will start at weak-side linebacker in place of Akeem Jordan (hamstring) versus the Giants in Week 4.

Chaney had been a healthy scratch the past two weeks, leaving Brian Rolle to fill in when Jordan went down with the injury last week. Chaney will give way to nickelback Brandon Boykin in three-wide sets, which the Giants have used on 59 percent of their plays this season.

Eagles LB Jamar Chaney (neck surgery) was cleared to return to practice on Tuesday.

Chaney wasn't limited in practice, so he should be fine going forward. With rookie Mychal Kendricks on the strong side, Chaney is working at weak-side linebacker. He expects to compete with Brian Rolle for the starting job.

Eagles LB Jamar Chaney (neck surgery) won't participate in mandatory June minicamp.

Chaney jumped the gun when he declared himself 100 percent in late April. Chaney's absence means No. 46 pick Mychal Kendricks will operate as the Eagles' first-string SAM linebacker in next month's minicamp. Kendricks is the favorite to win the job in training camp.

Eagles SLB Jamar Chaney says he's fully recovered from offseason neck surgery.

Chaney admitted he doesn't know whether he's still Philly's starting strong-side linebacker, a position that could be affected by Friday's draft picks. Chaney was penciled in at "Sam" after the Eagles traded for DeMeco Ryans.

Jamar Chaney (neck surgery) is expected to shift to strong-side linebacker following the acquisition of MLB DeMeco Ryans.

Brian Rolle will stay on the weak side, leaving Akeem Jordan as the odd man out. Chaney will likely give way to Casey Matthews or Keenan Clayton on passing downs, limiting his production in IDP formats. Chaney expects to be recovered from neck surgery by training camp.

Eagles LB Jamar Chaney expects to be recovered by mid-March from January surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck.

Chaney insists the neck fusion procedure was elective, and he's already working out in the weight room. "It's coming along pretty good now," said Chaney. "By the end of this month, maybe next month, I should be back to myself 100 percent."

Eagles MLB Jamar Chaney underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a herniated disk in his neck.

Chaney suffered the injury in the season finale, when he was checked for a concussion and initially believed to have sustained a stinger. There's not yet a recovery timetable, though a herniated disk is no small injury for a sideline-to-sideline linebacker involved in up to a dozen collisions per game. Although Chaney led the Eagles in tackles, he graded out below average in Pro Football Focus' 2011 ratings.

Eagles MLB Jamar Chaney was forced from Sunday's game with a head injury.

Chaney was injured on an attempted tackle of Evan Royster and immediately went to the locker room for further evaluation. It is believed he may have suffered a ''stinger.'' His return is questionable.
Sun, Jan 1, 2012 01:30:00 PM

Eagles MLB Jamar Chaney has been replaced by Casey Matthews in the nickel package.

"When you're 4-8 and not playing defense the way you're supposed to, they're going to make changes," explained Chaney. Matthews hadn't played on defense since his early-season benching. The Matthews-Keenan Clayton pair is the fourth different nickel combo for Philly this season.

The Eagles have moved Jamar Chaney to middle linebacker, a source tells beat writer Jeff McLane.

Struggling rookie Casey Matthews will stay in the starting lineup at the "WILL" position, with Moise Fokou opposite him at "SAM." It's a move that should have been made a long time ago as Chaney is more talented and more prepared to lead the Eagles' defense. IDP owners should note that Chaney had 40 tackles over the final four games of last season, including the playoffs. He's a player.
Wed, Sep 21, 2011 12:24:00 PM

Beat writer Jeff McLane calls Jamar Chaney a "viable option" to replace Casey Matthews at middle linebacker.

Matthews' lackluster showing on Thursday night has Eagles nation in panic mode. And since free agent Lofa Tatupu doesn't appear to be on the radar, moving Chaney back inside is the easiest move. In that scenario, Keenan Clayton would be installed at WILL and and Moise Fokou would shift to SAM. Chaney would get a nice boost in IDP formats.
