Eagles will be cutting A.J. Feeley

It was believed that the Pats recently cut quarterback Andrew Walter in order to clear a spot for veteran backup A.J. Feeley, who would have been traded to New England from Philly.

But the odd man out in the wake of the Mike Vick acquisition wasn’t dealt to the team that, for now, is backing up Tom Brady with Brian Hoyer.

Apparently, the Pats thought that the Eagles were bluffing in their apparent intent to use a roster exemption on Vick, which prevents him from practicing during his two-week suspension.

Bluffing the Eagles were. 

According to Jay Glazer of FOX and Adam Schefter of ESPN (we don’t know who had it first and we don’t have time to figure it out), the Eagles will be releasing Feeley today.

Look for the Eagles to subsequently move Vick to the active roster, which will allow him to participate in practice during the term of his suspension.

Because Feeley is a vested veteran, he won’t be required to pass through waivers (sorry, Lions), and he’ll be able to sign with any team he chooses.

Such as the Patriots.

The over/under for the first reports of Feeley’s arrival in Foxborough is 11:00 a.m. Monday.

    he’s cut and his spot on the roster is being filled by a player off waivers, not Vick

    And yea, fix the log on thing. It’s a pain in the ass.
    Retards from the south can do all that other crap

    I’ll take the over, since it’s Labor Day.

    there was no chance of them gettin anything for him cause the entire league knew he was gettin cut.
    it was a good try though, i guess. chances are at this point that jeff garcia gets signed by someone before aj feeley does, i would imagine.

    I think they like Garcia more. He is a smarter, more accurate quarterback and a winner and is from the Pats’s farm team.

    If the Cowboys won’t pick up Garcia, please pick up Feeley. And CUT KITNA.

    @ penguininbondage
    The “log on” thing takes less than one minute. It’s very simple.
    If “Retards from the south” can do it, you should be able to, unless you’re a nimrod from the North Pole.

    @SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK – It’s still broken. It allows you to type in a comment but then it fails to take. I’m typing this right now, I see the “Logout” option at the bottom, but let’s see if I’m really logged in.

    It’s sad when a team cuts it’s best back up and saves a spot for a piece of shit that doesn’t deserve to be in the league.

    Heather Mitts plays soccer in New England. AJ Feely will take minimum to be where his wife is.

    @ Anrkist
    I should have said in step #2 that the second window you open must be the same web browser you were using to view PFT. If it was Firefox, the next one needs to be Firefox also. I used to have problems logging back in again a couple months ago, but that problem for me has gone away, don’t know why. Hope it works out.
