After being a surprise survivor of the roster cuts yesterday, Trevard Lindley's stay with the Eagles lasted just a few extra hours. He was waived today to make room for former Texans OL Nathan Menkin.

Howie Roseman said last night that the Eagles would be looking to their offensive line depth, so the move should come as no surprise. Given that they had been carrying 6 corners, the fact that Lindley was the odd man out probably isn't a huge shock either.

Lindley really did have a good preseason though and certainly deserves to catch on somewhere.

Menkin, who is 6-4, 296 was an undrafted free agent out of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, which you may be surprised to learn... exists. He's listed as both a guard and tackle, but played tackle in college where he earned AFCA All-American honors as a senior and was named American Southwest Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year last season.

The Sideline View, Adam Caplan's site, called Menken a good project tackle.

Quickness and athleticism, both trademarks of a Howard Mudd OT.
