Battle Wings ink former Eagles lineman
Skinner stands 6-foot-6 and weighs in at a robust 335 pounds. The former West Texas standout made it to the final cut with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006 and has been waiting on another NFL contract since then.
The af2 rookie should provide ample protection for whichever Battle Wings quarterback wins the starting nod between local favorite Gary Cooper, af2 veteran Steve Panella and recent signee Dane King.
If nothing else, he'll keep the team's center from getting sunburned during preseason drills at Independence Stadium.
