Eagles Cuts 2015: Philadelphia releases Ed Reynolds

The Philadelphia Eagles are going to release safety Ed Reynolds, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Reynolds flashed early in the preseason by making two interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts, but struggled with some missed tackles in the last two games. He did show up nicely on special teams, however.

The Eagles originally drafted Reynolds in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He spent last year on the practice squad. He might be bound to the practice squad yet again this year.

With Reynolds out, and Chris Prosinski reportedly getting cut earlier, the Eagles only have four safeties left: Malcolm Jenkins, Walter Thurmond, Chris Maragos, and Jerome Couplin. It would appear that Couplin has made the final roster, though that has not been officially confirmed yet.
