The Eagles Have Cut Down To 56, Three More To Go

The Eagles just released a list of 19 players who have been released from the football team.  Here’s the list.

S Oshiomogho Atogwe, TE Brett Brackett, LB Keenan Clayton, DT Landon Cohen, TE Chase Ford, WR Mardy Gilyard, WR Chad Hall, CB Joselio Hanson, FB Emil Igwenagu, T D.J. Jones, WR Marvin McNutt, LB Adrian Moten, DT Ollie Ogbu, LB Ryan Rau, DE Monte Taylor, S Phillip Thomas, DT Frank Trotter, G/C Steve Vallos, G Brandon Washington

The following players have practice squad eligibility:  Brackett, Ford, Hall, Igwenagu, Jones, McNutt, Ogbu, Rau, Taylor, Thomas, Trotter and Washington.

They’re probably working on trades involving quarterbacks Trent Edwards or Mike Kafka, punter Mat McBriar, running back Chris Polk, and defensive linemen Darryl Tapp and/or Antonio Dixon.

The Eagles roster currently stands at 56 players. All NFL clubs must reduce their rosters to 53 players tonight by 9 pm ET.

In addition, the Eagles and G Mike Gibson reached an injury settlement and he has been released from their Injured Reserve list.

Next 5 Players out/released..
QB Kafka, RB Polk, CB T Lindley, P McBRiar, and LB Rolle
(There is noTrade value on RB Polk,,3rd/4th String RB’s are littered around the NFL and the Waiver wires… He’s a good player and can help the Eagles or another Team, but a Team trading a Draft Selection for him is very unlikely as it is for a Punter..

Then Eagles go out and sign a Safety and a LB to get back to 53 Players

is everyone blind on this site? The only player Brandon Graham looked good playing against was Mitchell Schwartz from Cleveland and he is a jewish rookie 2nd round draft pick. Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham are far worse than Dixon and Tapp.

I forgot about Darryl Tapp who I stated all off-season adn summer long as long as the Eagles DE remainde healthy thru Camp that he was the odd-man out.. They will trade him for a 5th Round Pick or perhaps a Safety

Patriots release 6 Year Veteran Safety James Ihedigbo who is pretty decent Back-up and Special Teamer.. Pats also released WR’s Deon Branch, Donte Stallworth & Jabar Gaffney

TB Bucs release Safety Larry Assante who was Drafted out of Nebraska 2-3 Years ago and was pretty highly rated coming into the Draft that year and was pretty decent player from what I recall .. Not Starter material but a good back-up and SPecial Teamer

Here’s my Safety.. Mark LeGree from Appalachian State who was just Released from the Chicago Bears.. SIgn him up Howie/AR…
LeGree is 6-0 215lbs, a real hitter and a ball hawk.. Excellent on SPecial teams

ST Rams also Release FB Ovie Mughelli who is a beast of a blocker..

Reports are that the Eagles are trying to trade Mike Kafka. They probably wont be able to seing anything, but it shows you what they think of Edwards. Kafka will be the qb that get the boot.

Kafka has been released. I don’t think the eagles will be able to trade ANY QB for the forseable future. Especially after Skelton has been named the starter in Arizona.

Why do some keep hoping to thinking trade value for unproven players like
Kafka,Polk, Jarrettt.. Has anyone looked at the Waiver WIres
The only player(s) who are on the bubble and has Trade Value would be D Tapp and A Dixon (probably 5yj/6th Round Selections at Best

If I need a back-up Senaca Wallace, B Hoyers are out there and much more experience than Kafka who has very limited

agree Pman…. i think they will trade Tapp.. thats it. There has to be somone out there that will want him. Outside of that, there isnt much to see here. I forgot that Kafka was a 4th rounder. Thats crazy.

@ Eagles0Superbowls. I agree with you on Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry being far worse than Tapp and Dixon.

Paulman.. The only mention of trading kafka came today.. Reported by profootball talk. I don’t think any fans were legitimately thinking Kafka had trade value.

I know that Paulman has been saying this for a long while, but I really wish they had tried Clayton at Strong Safety. He runs a 4.53 and can hit….but I guess it is too late now. Something they should have tried in the OTA’s.

Polk might be the best running back on the team behind mccoy .. hes faster than mccoy an dlewis and runs harder and smarter than brown… Gilyard should have made the team .. riley cooper sucks

I like him as an in hhe box safety but hed be a liability against a wide out.

Jax,Mac ,jvant,damar,celek,clay ships in the harbor,and shady.how does he not huck for 4k this year?miss one game ok,make it the 17th week when everyone is benched .

Thomas will outplay any safety on wire.safetys are healthy and playing with chips.

This is the deepest backfield since westy buck.

Polk brown will fight it out for goalline carries.

The safety position is suspect! They need to find a safety whose not afraid of knocking the hell out of people. Allen and Coleman are not ” the ones”. And Jarrett, he could cover my mother. He might hit something, but recognizing who to hit and cover might be a little challenging! What has Riley Cooper done to endear himself ? Gilyard was the correct choice. Oh I’m sorry, this represents our red zone size!

Picked up David Sims from the Browns for a conditional 2013

Re-watched the Eagles-Browns preseason came away impressed with Sims. Solid open-field tackler, wraps up, looks for contact, decent in coverage, good in run support, impressive on ST.

…descending into off-topic content for a quick sec.

eagles0superbowls: Jews are (or are supposed to be) the genetic descendants of the tribe of Judah and alienate themselves from the surrounding Arab groups in that region making them, more or less, a unique ethnic group. Neither ethnicity, nor religious belief has any bearing on athletic ability or intellect.

Back to football..Sims isn’t the answer. Phillip Thomas should have made the team. With him having already been through the training camp he would still have an edge over Sims. Certainly there might be some character issues, but the guy knows how to defend over the top in cover-2…which the Eagles haven’t had in their arsenal for YEARS. This guy is so much better than Quinton Demps. (I’m sure they equate the character of the two and that’s why Thomas got cut.)

As far as I’m concerned, Rolle and Matthews should probably be getting released and the Eagles should pick up two big athletic, but raw LBs Kourtnei Brown (49ers) and Chavis Williams (Ravens.)
