The Eagles have only so many roster spots for aging veterans from their 2006 division championship team.
With Jeremiah Trotter added Tuesday, the team announced Tuesday that it has let go of quarterback Jeff Garcia.
Garcia’s acquisition made a splash in the news, but he was no longer useful with Donovan McNabb returning to health and Kevin Kolb playing so well. (Michael Vick will also be active on gamedays.)
Now 39, it’s possible we have seen the last of Garcia in the NFL. He may have received a chance to play in Oakland this year, but asked for his release before the season, according to coach Tom Cable.
