Last year, the Eagles took a fourth-round flyer on cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu, a first-round prospect who suffered a torn ACL in January while training for the draft.
After he avoided a possible jail term earlier this year via an acquittal on lingering burglary charges involving the alleged theft of a non-360 Xbox, Ikegwuonu was in position to launch his NFL career.
And it has now flown into a window.
Per a league source, the Eagles have cut Ikegwuonu.
If he makes it through waivers, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent. Cornerback-needy teams (like the Bears) might be interested in making a claim for his contract.
