You’ll recall that Hester was the Eagles’ playoff hero from their 2019 Wild Card round win over the Chicago Bears. Hester JUST managed to get a finger on Cody Parkey’s game-winning field goal attempt and deflect it enough to have it double doink off both the upright and crossbar.
It’s not a total shock the Eagles cut Hester because he was on the depth chart behind Fletcher Cox, Malik Jackson, Timmy Jernigan, and Hassan Ridgeway. It was just a question of the Eagles keeping five defensive tackles or not. It looks like the team might be keeping six defensive ends — with Shareef Miller making the roster — instead.
Hester is still practice squad eligible so the Eagles could sign him to that but he could easily get claimed on waivers.
Thanks for the great memory, Treyvon.
