The free-agent quarterback market has dominated the headlines, but that doesn’t mean non-signal callers are not in high demand.

Free-agent defensive tackle Nick Fairley has drawn some interest from the Eagles with the Jets and Saints possibly in the mix too, according to NJ.com.

Fairley spent last season with the Rams as the third defensive tackle behind Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers after signing a one-year deal last offseason. Fairley spent his first four seasons with the Detroit Lions, who took the 6-5, 291-pound tackle with the 13th pick in 2011.

Fairley had a breakout season in 2013, finishing with six sacks in 15 games.
