Quarterback G.J. Kinne had a good preseason for the Eagles, but there simply wasn’t a place to put him on the 53-man roster.

Kinne was among the first players cut in Philadelphia, according to Reuben Frank of

With Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley entrenched in front of him, Kinne needed someone to get injured or falter, and no one did.

Kinne posed a 130.7 passer rating in the preseason, although that was compiled against of other guys who are about to become unemployed. They might still sign him to the practice squad, as he has eligibility there.

Offensive lineman Josh Andrews has also been cut, per a tweet from his agent.

    Barkley is pretty horrible. How’d he get entrenched on an NFL roster?

    Eagles only chose Barkley over him because they drafted him.

    Barkley is awful and he was a #1 pick contender back in 2012.

    Gotta love when people emerge from under the rocks to rip your 3rd string QB.

    This is the second time Kinne’s been the 4th QB at Eagles camp. Not really a shock he was cut.

    Ya gotta know what you are talking about. Matt was injured (shoulder) and wasn’t ready to compete. He is actually still a rookie. He will improve if given a chance. He wasn’t touted so high for no reason. I stand by this, the more development time he gets the better he will get. Comcast Ray and Ike agreed that his are strength has improved.

    He could start for 20 other teams. Maybe 30.

    To bad kinne didn’t try out for skins he would have had a decent shot of beating out griffin

    Honestly, whatever. Personally, I find it more upsetting that they cut Henry Josey- kid is going to get a shot somewhere, and just like he’s done his entire football career (in spite of his terrible knee injury in college), he’s going to shine.

    Not a wise decision by the birds to cross their fingers and hope he clears waivers- great player to have in the locker room for team chemistry, as well.
