The Eagles have made their choice at punter.

Mat McBriar has been released by the Eagles, according to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, leaving Chas Henry as the only punter on the roster in Philadelphia.

McBriar, a former Australian rules football player, had played his entire eight-year NFL career with the Cowboys before signing with Philadelphia this offseason. He’ll now become an unrestricted free agent and may still have time to make a punter-needy team.

Henry signed with the Eagles last year as an undrafted free agent out of Florida and averaged 42.9 yards a punt.
