The Philadelphia Eagles have released veteran safety Chris Prosinski, according to a report from Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com.
This is one of the most surprising cuts the Eagles have reportedly made so far. Prosinski wasn't necessarily a lock to make the team, but I figured he was close to being one. Here's what I wrote about him recently:
"I'd argue Chris Prosinski should be a lock because he can also contribute on special teams. Prosinski also has starting experience with the Jaguars (although he didn't look great there), and he's had a quietly good training camp. He had at least three interceptions in practice, which might not mean a whole lot but it's something."
Prosinski originally joined the Eagles halfway through the 2014 season. Despite only being with the team for eight games, he finished fourth overall in special teams tackles.
With Prosinski out, look for the Eagles to possibly keep at least one of Ed Reynolds and/or Jerome Couplin.
