Eagles release four players

AP

Chip Kelly hasn’t even put his team on a field yet, but he’s already found a few guys he didn’t need.

The Eagles released four players Thursday, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The biggest name of the lot was linebacker Ryan Rau, who spent last year on injured reserve after breaking his ankle in training camp.

That you’ve probably never heard of Ryan Rau should tell you about the rest of the list, as they also parted ways with wide receiver Ron Johnson, linebacker Marcus Dowtin and cornerback Chris Hawkins.

  1. There’s about 3 Lions I would really like to see released before the draft too, just to clean out the bait for other teams that might want to use them for a roster spot. The Eagles are getting a head start on house cleaning. Chip Kelly has his moves lined up and with confidence methinks!

  2. Nope, WR Ronald Johnson spent the season on IR after breaking his ankle. Ryan Rau spent most of the year on the PS before being promoted to the 53-man roster late in the year. Don’t you do research?

  3. Ryan Rau is a really good special teams player and a good up and coming linebacker.I hope Andy Reid and the Chiefs picks him up.

    go troll somewhere else.
    oh. enjoy the winless season the ravens will have in 2013…

    Why is it that PFT has taken on a new tone as of late? These 4 guys just got cut which sucks for them but is part of the business. To kick them when they are down is unnecessary and not any type of journalism.

  6. Guys…. seriously stop playing the dream team card. It’s not clever, witty, original, or even funny anymore. It just makes you look like a dolt with no creativity.

    And to the ravens fan, you are not allowed to speak about the nfc east. Worry about the greatest gm on earth Oz and your mid-card team he put together. All that for jump ball Joe… wow you must be proud.

  7. Well,, since you all think this way.

    Ant team in the NFC East ,
    below the Birds in the standings ..
    should be considered the

    ” LAUGHING-STOCK of the NFL ” .

    Can’t wait until the season is over !

    who’s it gonna be ? ?
