The Eagles have extended the contracts of a couple of linemen in the past two days.  And they’ve traded a lineman.

Now they’ve cut a lineman.

Jamaal Jackson has been released.  The team announced the move Wednesday afternoon.

Due to receive a base salary of $1.775 million in 2012, Jackson was signed through 2013.

A full-time starter since 2006, Jackson missed 15 games in 2010 with a torn ACL.  He appeared in every game last season, but started none of them.

    A class act and a serviceable lineman – he’ll be a very cost effective center or guard for whichever team offers him a deal.

    He’ll be a solid pick-up for someone. He just never meshed with Mudd’s scheme. I’m surprised the Eagles couldn’t get anything for him.

    Solid guy, just didn’t fit Mudd’s scheme. Wish the best to him.

    With Jackson gone, Eagles don’t have a single player left from their 2004 Super Bowl team.

    All that’s left is 8 Coaches/Front Office Staff.
    Andy Reid
    Joe Banner
    Jeffrey Lurie
    Marty Mornhinweg
    Ted Williams – RB Coach
    David Culley – WR Coach
    Tom Melvin – TE Coach
    & Juan – no introduction needed

    Jackson missed those 15 games in 2010 with a torn triceps and the last game in 2009 with a torn ACL to be correct…
