Eagles cut 10 players

The Eagles are down to 78 players after parting ways with 10 players on Sunday.

There aren’t any surprising names on the list as the Eagles mostly trimmed roster fat ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to get to 75 players. Among the possibly recognizable names on the list is wide receiver and punt returner Nick Miller, who returned a punt for a touchdown with the Rams in 2011 and re-signed with the team this offseason after Jeremy Maclin injured his knee.

The Eagles also cut punter Brad Wing, who was competing with Donnie Jones for the punting job this summer. Wing played at LSU in college before declaring himself eligible for the 2013 draft. The Eagles signed him after he went unselected, but a team named after a bird will not have a player named Wing on the roster.

Tight end Derek Carrier, defensive end Eddie McClam, tackle Nic Purcell, defensive end/outside linebacker Isaac Remington, tight end Will Shaw, defensive tackle Daryell Walker, cornerback Eddie Whitley and long snapper James Winchester were also let go on Sunday.

    “but a team named after a bird will not have a player named Wing on the roster.” – this made me throw up in my mouth.

    They give you a cheesesteak on the way out the door?

    Wing definitely deserves a shot if a team is looking for a punter. And TE-needing teams should take a look at Carrier.

    Add Jamar Chaney to that list too

    All 10 could probably start for the R-words.

    Wing’s attitude probably caught up to him.

    Should have included Vick in the cuts, and gave a young guy the chance . We all know Vick will stink up the place as the season progresses. Chipper had the chance in his site, to steer the once proud eagles straight again! He blew it!
