Whoever said "there's safety in numbers" obviously-
wasn't referring to former Michigan linebacker Andy Can-
Cannavino, who was cut by the Detroit Lions last summer
in his bid to make their roster as a rookie, is one of 51 free
agents who have been signed by the Philadelphia Eagles.
THESE 51 players will join this year's Eagle draft choices
and 50 returning veterans in a quest for 45 spots on the
"Maybe we don't normally bring in that many free agen-
ts," said Philadelphia Public Relations Director Jim
Gallagher. "Fifty-one might be a little high. But this year's
draft wasn't that deep and so more teams have been signing
more free agents."
As for why Cannavino was signed, Gallagher said, "I
wouldn't be surprised if one of our scouts saw him last year
when he was trying out with the Lions, and put a check by his
name as if to say 'get him if he becomes available.' "
WHEN ASKED to assess the linebacking corps that Can-
navino will be trying to break into, Gallagher said, "It's one
of the stronger areas on our team."
Cannavino has been with the team "a week or two," accor-
ding to Gallagher, during which time he has been running
and lifting weights. The Eagles' draft choices have not repor-
ted as yet.
Cannavino was selected by Detroit in the 10th round of the
1981 draft, but was released in the team's second to last cut
during the pre-season, which reduced the squad's roster to 50
players. During his senior year at Michigan (1980), Can-
navino earned All-Big Ten honors from both the Associated
Press and United Press International. He is currently second
on the all-time Michigan tackling list with 385, placing him
behind only Ron Simpkins. Cannavino played at Michigan
