The Philadelphia Eagles released four players on Sunday afternoon, according to an official announcement from the team. The Eagles cut running back Cedric O'Neal, center Bruce Johnson, and wide receivers T.J. Graham and Xavier Rush. Philadelphia's roster now stands at 84 players, which is six shy of the 90-man offseason limit.

None of these cuts comes as a surprise. O'Neal, Johnson, and Rush are all undrafted rookie free agents. Graham has the most NFL experience of the bunch but he's struggled to impress this summer.

The Eagles must cut their roster down to 75 players by 4:00 PM ET on Tuesday, August 30. That means at least nine more roster moves are coming. Philadelphia can free up one space by placing rookie linebacker Joe Walker, who suffered an ACL injury, on the season-ending injured reserve list assuming he clears waivers.

Another thing to consider is that the Eagles might not be done adding players yet. Doug Pederson suggested the team is looking to add a veteran linebacker due to the absence of Walker.

Stay tuned for more Eagles roster news.
