Eagles make 13 of their moves today

Dennis Dixon AP

Teams have until tomorrow afternoon to take rosters from 75 to 53 players, and the Eagles are more than halfway there.

The team just announced 13 moves, taking them to 62.

They released the following players: Outside linebacker Everette Brown, defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, quarterback Dennis Dixon, defensive end David King, quarterback G.J. Kinne, guard Matt Kopa, wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah, wide receiver Will Murphy, center Dallas Reynolds, outside linebacker Adrian Robinson and guard Matt Tennant. They also waived cornerback Trevard Lindley with an injury settlement and placed defensive end Joe Kruger on injured reserve.

Those moves clear up the traffic at quarterback, though Dixon wasn’t expected to make it beyond this point. Robinson was just acquired this week in a trade with the Steelers for unwanted running back Felix Jones.

    As an Eagles fan there are 13 players no one will sign! Ha ha!

    I was looking forward to watching Chip Kelly’s offense this year, but he just doesn’t have enough team speed to do any real damage and Vick will end up being Vick– sometimes spectacular, most times average, plenty times horrible.

    All that adds up to 6-10.

    I want to see who gets cut out of Acho , Knott, and Matthews that should be a tough decision also hope Momah gets put on the practice squad to much promise to give up on

    I guess Chip does everything fast. To his credit, he gives these guys a head start on possibly signing elsewhere.

    The only move I disagree with is the cutting of Everette Brown. I think he was the 4th best OLB on the team behind Barwin, Cole, and Graham this offseason. Does this mean McCoy and Knott make the team?

    I’m an Eagles fan and the Eagles could very well be 6-10 but this team does not have issues with team speed–especially on offense (Vick, Jackson, B. Brown, McCoy and an athletic and mobile O-Line). In fact of all of the issues they do have team speed is the last problem on their list.

    Vick is a serviceable quarterback when he has even a modicum of protection. I don’t know any quarterback that can be good when they are running for their life every play.

    The Eagles were horrible last year mostly in part due to a horrible line and a porous defense. Their season was shot when Peters went down. Vick didn’t help with his turnovers, but too many Eagles fans want to lay all the Eagles problems at Vick’s feet and that’s just not accurate.

    “Their season was shot when Peters went down. Vick didn’t help with his turnovers, but too many Eagles fans want to lay all the Eagles problems at Vick’s feet and that’s just not accurate.”

    It’s very accurate. O-line aside, the guy cannot read a blitz & audible. Never could. What did he do in Atlanta? Did he even one season throw for over 3,000 yards in Atlanta, once again playing in the QB friendly WCO? What’s his playoff record? Didn’t he have a chance to win against GB in the 2010 playoffs & threw a game ending INT? Serviceable??I want a real NFL QB, not a serviceable journeyman player that has been a career failure.

    Stop fooling your selves fellow Eagle fans, this guy will NEVER BE A BIG GAME QB. And we are throwing 2013 away by starting a 32 yr old career disappointment that will once again disappoint. Start one of the young guys & let’s move FORWARD!

    Start one of the young guys… Why??? I wonder what happened to Shaggy last night, more t/o’s, couldn’t read the Yets D, no deep balls inconsistent… hmmmm I wonder if the Lack of Protection from the OL had some influence with how Shaggy played. As far as his Atlanta history Vick has acknowledged he didn’t start learning to play QB until Reid and MM.as far as what Vick can and can’t b… hang on in a few weeks he going to show all, ALL, the doubters what time it is,.

    It’s not at all. The comment was that speed was the issue. It is not. As for Vick, clearly you’re not a fan, and that’s fine. I have my doubts as well, but he’s definitely the best option we have available. And the line is much improved from last year. He may not be the best at reading the defense, but he can certainly audible. The problem last year was play calling coupled with a horrible line.
