Eagles finally make a roster move, cut Jason Phillips

Zach Miller, Jason Phillips AP

The Eagles cut a guy Tuesday, which wouldn’t necessarily be news, except it is.

The team announced they released veteran linebacker Jason Phillips.

Phillips was expected to be a solid backup and special teams player, but suffered a torn ACL in training camp last year and hasn’t been the same player this offseason.

As Adam Caplan of ESPN points out, that’s the Eagles’ first transaction other than signing a rookie since May 19.

That’s a remarkable run of stability, at a time when many teams use the 85th through 90th roster spots as a revolving door, looking at guys for a few days at a time before shipping them out for new versions.

    I saw that coming. He is awful. Bad tackler, can’t cover and lack the instincts to be a good linebacker.

    Before Curtis Marsh or Roc Carmichael?

    When the Eagles get their roster setteled at 53, the team will b busting at the seams with talent n depth. I’m sure the giants will b scouring the wire on who the Eagles release as they can only dream of matching the Eagles roster of talent. Giant fans, now is a good time to start working on excuses for the giants failure. Remember, the EAGLES rule the East n will take no prisoners.

    sadly the eagles are the team to beat in the east.. My Cowboys have no defense, the redskins arent any better… The giants have a qb that likes to throw more Interceptions than TD’s.. BUT……. They still suck

    something has to give with this defense

    It’s not a “remarkable run of stability”. It’s a remarkable run of praying that an NFL caliber WR would be cut elsewhere and it not happening.

    Best WRs in the NFC East:
    Bryant
    D. Jackson
    Garcon
    Cruz
    NYG WR2-4
    Wash WR2-4
    Dal WR2-4
    Phillys’ sorry set of WRs

    Please let Casey Matthews be next.

    He hasn’t been the same since college. He screwed up his knee at the combine and never really recovered.

    To giant fans. Keep living in the past. Living in the present can only depress u. LOL
