The Eagles have to get down to 75 players by the end of the weekend so they cut 10 players Saturday to get down to 79 and one was a surprising cut to me.
- WR Elvis Akpla
- S Wade Bonner
- DE Xavier Brown
- WR Brian Hernandez
- WR Mckay Jacobson
- WR Tiger Jones
- G Alfred McCullough
- S Tom Nelson
- OT Thomas Welch
- CB Kevin Thomas
- CB Cliff Harris
Cliff Harris was a big surprise to me, he was a stud on the field at Oregon and really impressed in Training Camp and even had a interception against the Browns. I can see why they cut him, they have a very deep roster at CB so a lot of good names will get cut. I see the final result being 1. Nnamdi Asomugha 2. DRC
So to me Lindley and Hanson do not make the team so that they can keep more D-lineman which is the deepest position.
A surprise move at the Linebacker depth chart was made today as LB Akeem Jordan beat out LB Brian Rolle. Wow I did not see that coming, I thought that it was down to Chaney and Rolle but since Rolle did not impress in the preseason and Chaney is hurt so that left Jordan to have a great preseason and swoop the job into his hands. Now I do not see him being the starter through out the hole season, I am a big fan of Rolle who played his way into the starting spot last year. If Jordan struggles than I think Reid will quickly move Rolle…or Chaney into that spot.
Andy Reid updated the injuries today saying that Babin has a good chance to play vs the Browns. The bad news of the day was that Reid said that Mike Patterson will miss a huge lump of time during the season if not the whole season because of his brain surgery. Riley Cooper will most likely not play vs the Browns and the same goes for Casey Matthews.
The Eagles annual Flight Night is tonight at 7:00 and Vick will practice which is fun for the fans and for Eagles fans.
