Eagles Release Ten To Get Down To 80BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, General News, News Sunday, August 26th, 2012
The Eagles made their cuts yesterday to get down to 80 players on the roster and there were no major surprises. The list included safety Tom Nelson, cornerback Kevin Thomas and tackle Thomas Welch, wide receiver Elvis Akpla, safety Wade Bonner, defensive end Xavier Brown, wide receiver Brian Hernandez, wide receiver McKay Jacobson, wide receiver Tiger Jones, and guard Alfred McCullough,
I guess the biggest surprise if you want to call it that was the release of safety Nelson. He had played in the last four games in the season a year ago, but didn’t stand out at the team’s safety position where the Birds have been looking for help.
The Birds will have to let go of another five players to get down to 75 by 4:00pm on Monday. They have to get down to 53 by 9pm on Friday.
