Source: Eagles to try out safety Jeremy Deering

The Philadelphia Eagles are auditioning former Rutgers safety Jeremy Deering on Sunday, according to a league source. Deering has drawn interest from six NFL teams recently. With so many injuries at safety around the league, teams are looking for depth. Deering is a former New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders reserve. He went undrafted last year. At Rutgers, he played running back, wide receiver, kick returner and safety. He finished his collegiate career with 130 rushes for 578 yards and two touchdowns, 21 receptions for 415 yards and one touchdown, 41 kickoff returns for 1,100 yards and one touchdown and 45 tackles, one interception and one pass defensed. The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder moved to safety as a senior and had 39 tackles and one interception. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle
