Eagles give up on piece of Sheldon Brown trade

The Eagles cut linebacker Alex Hall on Wednesday morning, a surprising move this early in training camp considering he was part of the Sheldon Brown trade to Cleveland.

The Eagles gave up Brown and linebacker Chris Gocong for Hall plus picks in the fourth and fifth round.  Hall got folks excited in Cleveland with his pass rushing ability as a rookie, but quickly fell out of favor with Eric Mangini.

It took even less time for the Eagles to decide they had no use for him.
