Former Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver stirred things up via his Twitter account on Monday morning.

Weaver suggested that some players on the Eagles may be "disgruntled" and expressed concern about "the unity of the team."

Weaver also went on to say that the Birds could have a tough time winning games if they don't believe in new head coach Chip Kelly's system or style.

The tweets caught the attention of a handful of Weaver's followers. Many believed Weaver was serving as a mouthpiece for quarterback Michael Vick.

Late last week, Vick told CSNPhilly.com Eagles Insider Geoff Mosher that he hoped Kelly would name a starting quarterback before training camp so all the speculation would go away (see story).

Weaver took to Twitter again on Tuesday morning, stating that he was not speaking for Vick, even though he considers the Eagles' QB a "great player and friend."

Weaver, who was selected to the 2010 Pro Bowl as a starting fullback, played for the Eagles from 2009-10 before suffering a season-ending torn ACL in his left knee on his first carry of the 2010 season.

On April 22, Weaver signed a one-day contract with the Eagles in order to officially retire with his former team.
