Eagles Cut 10, Roster Now At 80


The Eagles had until August 27th to get the roster down to 75, and they started that process today by releasing 10 players.

Here are the players the Eagles released:

WR Elvis Akpla
WR Brian Hernandez (injured)
WR McKay Jacobson
WR Tiger Jones
DB Tom Nelson (injured)

No real surprises in the first cuts, unless you want to consider Kevin Thomas- the corner they acquired from Indianapolis earlier this month- a surprise. Now it is clear that move was just two teams swapping players that were not going to make the roster anyway.

The team must be down to 75 by 4 p.m. on Monday.

The Eagles have 1 more preseason game, and after that, the final cuts will be made.
