Projecting The Eagles Next 4 Cuts

The Eagles have until 4pm tomorrow to trim their roster to 75 from 90. So far, they've axed 11.

WR Elvis Akpla, S Wade Bonner, DE Xavier Brown, WR Brian Hernandez, WR McKay Jacobson, WR Tiger Jones, G Alfred McCullough, DB Tom Nelson, CB Kevin Thomas, OT Thomas Welch, CB Cliff Harris.

That means there four more cuts to make, which a quick look over the roster says won't be terribly hard to guess. Getting from 75 to 53 should be significantly more difficult. My guess is that the next four out come from this list.

TE Chase Ford, WR Jamel Hamler, OT D.J. Jones, DT Ollie Obgu, G/C Dallas Reynolds, LB Monte Simmons, CB Trevard Lindley.

Guys like Lindley or Hamler could survive just out of need for bodies for that final preseason game. Then again, the team could always give the likes of Damaris Johnson, Marvin McNutt and Brandon Boykin extended time against the Jets. Of course, when rookies have never even played a 16 game season there's some logic in giving them a break if they're going to be expected to be contributors this season.

After the jump, is notice of termination that players are supposed to get under the CBA when they are cut. Kind of harsh!
