The Philadelphia Eagles released the following three players on Tuesday morning: running back Ross Scheuerman, linebacker Brandon Hepburn, and FULLBACK Ryan Mueller. These three roster cuts come one day after the Eagles released two players on Monday. It's clear the Birds are making room for their undrafted free agent rookie signings following the 2016 NFL Draft.

Scheuerman signed with the Eagles earlier this offseason. The Allentown, New Jersey native attended Lafayette College. Hepburn has spent time on the Eagles' practice squad and offseason roster in the past years.

The most notable cut is Mueller. Not because he actually ever did anything with the Eagles ... but because the team signed him earlier this offseason to give him a look at fullback. Mueller previously played defensive tackle for the Chargers. Now the Eagles don't have a fullback anymore so it's clear they won't be winning the Super Bowl this year. Or at least that's what Heath Evans would say.

Stay tuned for more on the Eagles' UDFA signings.
