Roster trimming begins: Who missed the cut for the Philadelphia Eagles?


If you listened to the Sunday Night Football broadcast on NBC you probably heard Chris Collinsworth say that this is the hardest time of the year for NFL coaches. He wasn’t referring to injuries or the preseason schedule; he was talking about roster cuts.

By 4:00 PM eastern time yesterday each NFL had to cut their rosters from 90 players down to 75. Over the weekend the Philadelphia Eagles got a head start by announcing 14 players were released. Here is a complete list of the guys who have been cut, per Bleeding Green Nation:

Tight end Blake Annen

Offensive lineman Michael Bamiro

Offensive guard Karim Barton (claimed by Cleveland Browns)

Offensive guard Donald Hawkins (also claimed by Cleveland Browns)

Wide receiver Kadron Boone

Wide receiver B.J. Cunningham

Offensive lineman Donald Hawkins

Tight end Emil Igwenagu (claimed by Detroit Lions)

Inside linebacker Jake Knott

Defensive end Joe Kruger (claimed by San Diego Chargers)

Defensive end Alejandro Villanueva

Defensive end Frank Mays

Defensive back Davon Morgan

Safety Daytawion Lowe

Kicker Carey Spear

Yesterday the Eagles also waived offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde with an injury settlement.

I’m surprised that nobody has picked up B.J. Cunningham as of yet, but there’s still time before the regular season kicks off. The Eagles now have until Saturday afternoon to trim the roster to 53 players.
