Eagles Release Three Players

According to the Philadelphia Eagles website, the final roster cuts have begun and three players received the axe this afternoon:

The Eagles cut three players Friday afternoon, releasing tight end Eugene Bright, defensive tackle Willie Williams and linebacker Curtis Gatewood. The team's roster now stands at 72. The Eagles must cut 19 players between now and Saturday's 6 p.m. deadline to reach the league-mandated 53-man roster limit.

No surprises with these initial cuts. None of the three players made much of an impression during the four preseason games. This move leaves the Eagles with five defensive tackles, four tight ends, and eight linebackers on the current roster. Who will be next on the chopping block? Stay tuned as the roster cuts continue.
