Eagles cut Jarrad Page


Jarrad Page is out in Philadelphia.

Page, a safety who had played in six games this year and started five, was released by the Eagles today.

The timing of the announcement that Page is out is curious: It comes shortly after reports surfaced that he was one of several NFL players at a Manhattan night club where a man was shot and killed in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. None of the players has been accused of any wrongdoing in the shooting, but NFL teams often don’t take kindly to players who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, the Eagles say that’s not the reason Page was cut. Then again, if that were the reason Page was cut, it’s probably safe to say the Eagles wouldn’t admit it publicly.

With the roster spot vacated by Page, the Eagles have signed wide receiver Chad Hall from their practice squad. Putting Hall on the active roster is an indication that the Eagles are concerned about wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who is dealing with hamstring and shoulder injuries.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if the Pats took at least a peek at Page.

    Vikings better get on the phone. The scrubs in the secondary need an upgrade.

  3. knucklebucket says: Nov 16, 2011 12:51 PM

    If he wasn’t involved I would think the Pats will be on the phone to him shortly.

  4. kingmj4891 says: Nov 16, 2011 12:52 PM

    Detroit will claim him Asap and say goodbye to Chris Harris or Don Carey!

    Addition by subtraction? I’m just wondering when the powers that be come to their senses and fire big red.

  6. edmazeing1 says: Nov 16, 2011 12:53 PM

    He is from Cal & Huff is still hurt do the math!!!

  7. nflofficeadmin says: Nov 16, 2011 12:55 PM

    Jeremy Maclin, he’s still alive? I thought that thing in the preseason was his doom.

  8. myspaceyourface says: Nov 16, 2011 12:55 PM

    WAIT A MINUTE – Philly players were there with Giants players. . . Now I’m sick.

  9. nj22 says: Nov 16, 2011 12:56 PM

    Page is just NOT a very good player. I was surprised in the midst of Philly signing every big name this year that that had any interest in him.

  10. garyman1 says: Nov 16, 2011 12:58 PM

    The Eagles aren’t going anywhere….may as well clean house now.

  11. thankheavenfornumberseven says: Nov 16, 2011 12:59 PM

    I don’t know anything about this guy, but he would be an upgrade for the Vikings.

  12. pjcostello says: Nov 16, 2011 1:01 PM

    The Pats had Page last year, and let him go… the Vikings would be better off with Granny and her walker in the secondary than Page. The man can tackle, that’s for sure.

    However, unless the opponent is standing in front of him, asking to be tackled, Page is stuck. He can’t run well, takes poor angles, and is horrid in coverage. Heck, he was benched by the Eagles who, let’s face it, are not exactly the 1985 Bears on defense.

    Sorry, Jarrad. “The Dream” is over.

  14. b7p19 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:02 PM

    Two Eagles conspiracy theories in one day? Nice. Can we make it three?

    Maybe: “The Eagles are saying they are from Philadelphia and wear green helmets, but I’m not buying it. Something stinks about this situation. Andy Reid was wearing a green hat at the last press conference and he is not required to wear a hat at all!”

  15. allisab says: Nov 16, 2011 1:04 PM

    Would really like the Pats to resign him.

  16. trigzter says: Nov 16, 2011 1:05 PM

    can’t blame them for releasing him. he’s played horrible this year

  17. mrgroovesd says: Nov 16, 2011 1:07 PM

    I know some may say he’s not that good but bring him to the Bolts where he would replace Gregory. Bolts need a bigger safety especially since we know Weddle isn’t going anywhere soon with that contract his signed. They need size in the safety position.

  18. vikesfan67 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:09 PM

    Vikings need any upgrade at all defensive backs positions, but won’t do anything again ! In last 3 weeks pats, bears and now eagles have cut starters and they do nothing to up grade our terrible players! The front office and coaching staff need to go now as well!!! The wilffs got a real mess up here!!!!

  19. tjg25 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:09 PM

    Dumbass. Didn’t someone tell him if he’d kill some dogs he’d get a contract extension?

  20. alexnexus says: Nov 16, 2011 1:10 PM

    it’s tragic the dead of that man in the night club. rip!

    I don’t want to be superfluous but is also sad the dead of the eagles’ 2011 season -some reports say reid and castillo are the smoking guns-

    rip: eagles 2010-2012.

    … brains?…

  21. b3nz0z says: Nov 16, 2011 1:11 PM

    when are they gonna cut that coward steve smith?

  22. fthrvic says: Nov 16, 2011 1:12 PM


  23. homelanddefense says: Nov 16, 2011 1:19 PM

    I thought he played well for the Pats, they should def give him a loot considering the absolute garbage they have at safety (aside from Chung)

  24. drbob117 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:19 PM

    To the Pats , Chargers, Vikings etc. fans that are saying sign him… have you seen him play? This year, I mean. I’m an Eagles fan, so unfortunately I’ve had the pleasure and I promise, you don’t want him.

  25. paul197343 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:25 PM

    There falls the first domino of many on it’s way to the top.

  26. viperden says: Nov 16, 2011 1:28 PM

    What do the Vikings and Billy Graham have in common?
    They both can make 70,000 people stand up and yell “Jesus Christ”.

  27. cleverbob says: Nov 16, 2011 1:28 PM

    Can’t a guy get some supper at 2:30AM?

  28. 2ndaryinsanity says: Nov 16, 2011 1:33 PM

    NFL teams only cut players who were at the wrong place at the wrong time if said player is not a “star” or making big contributions. Like Big Ben and Cedric Benson, for instance. It’s much easier to cut a player who isn’t that good.

  29. chiefspirate20 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:37 PM

    All I have to say is welcome back to Kansas City Mr. Page.

  30. sprest83 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:38 PM

    That team is definitely the Longest Yard of the NFL.

  31. terripet says: Nov 16, 2011 1:40 PM

    he will end up with the colts or jets

  32. radrntn says: Nov 16, 2011 1:42 PM

    come back home to the east bay……as a kid you grew up a raider fan, now play for them

  33. jakek2 says: Nov 16, 2011 1:54 PM

    Was he cut for fraternizing with the enemy days before the Eagles’ biggest game of the year?

  34. kmooresd85 says: Nov 16, 2011 2:04 PM

    the chargers need defensive help majorly. im not familiar with him, but i dont think it would be terrible to at least take a look at the guy.

  35. riverhorsey says: Nov 16, 2011 2:06 PM

    Pats had him and released him last year.

  36. usmarine75 says: Nov 16, 2011 2:19 PM

    He’s too well known to be a Pats DB.

    Pats players don’t even get intros on Sun night football…

  37. Patskrieg dot com says: Nov 16, 2011 2:20 PM

    New England got decent production out of him last year. Hopefully Belichick didn’t file his number with Leigh Bodden’s and Adalius Thomas’

  38. angrycorgi says: Nov 16, 2011 2:34 PM

    This guy’s a spare…unless somebody is on their 3rd string safeties, he’s not worth a glance…especially if he may be going to court/jail soon.

  39. mikebyrne1502 says: Nov 16, 2011 2:37 PM

    Chargers areshould be all over this guy when Sanders went down they got really thin @ ss

  40. patriots2120 says: Nov 16, 2011 2:40 PM

    He played well for the Patriots last season. I would like to see them give him a closer look to see if he can help our defensive backfield. At the very least he knows the plays.

  41. thechosenone6 says: Nov 16, 2011 2:44 PM

    The Jets can use him, Eric Smith’s coverage is getting staler week after week.

  42. bobbyhoying says: Nov 16, 2011 3:03 PM

    Signing Hall suggests he will return punts instead of one of the fumble twins, Jackson and Smith.

  43. bluvayner says: Nov 16, 2011 3:14 PM

    The Pats didn’t release Page, he signed with the Eagles as a free agent after the lockout ended.

  44. jbaxt says: Nov 16, 2011 3:19 PM

    Should’ve kept your mouth shut while you were in KC while trying to get a new contract. Had you done that you wouldn’t find yourself being unemployed. Now after getting cut midseason you see you just really aren’t that good. Maybe you should go back to baseball.

  45. enrgy2burn says: Nov 16, 2011 3:58 PM

    The eagles are sending a strong message here that mediocrity is unacceptable!

  46. laeaglefan says: Nov 16, 2011 4:01 PM

    Oh yeah….Chad Hall is a great replacement for Jeremy Maclin (sarc)

    As far as Page is concerned, the Eagles aren’t lying when they say the nightclub incident isn’t why he was cut. It was just a good excuse to dump him now, but the real reason was that he just stunk up the joint, and they were going to cut him anyway. The nightclub thing just expedited the inevitable.

  47. rexadelphia8 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:23 PM

    The eagles need to clean house like the flyers did. They’re pathetic. I like to watch them flop in the 4th quarter. I’m still a fan but god damn

  48. dyoboiz88 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:32 PM

    The raiders will pick him up if he can run fast!!!… Raiders could use him

  49. nevin999 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:56 PM

    The timing isn’t curious, Mr. Smith. If you’ve been paying attention to the Eagles safety position, Page has been bad. Really bad. With Maclin possibly out, Page was the next weakest link to go since they needed to bring a WR up from the PS. I’m supremely confident your speculation is way, way off base.

    juan castillo is spanish for trainwreck
