Eagles Waive 12, Cut Roster To 75

The Eagles made their first of a series of cuts in order to get down to their 53 man roster. On Saturday they announced they had waived 10 players:

  • WR Elvis Akpla
  • CB Wade Bonner
  • DE Xavier Brown
  • WR McKay Jacobson
  • WR Tiger Jones
  • G Alfred McCullough
  • S Tom Nelson
  • CB Kevin Thomas
  • OT Thomas Welch

No surprises here. Philadelphia must get down to 75 players by Monday, and their final 53 man roster by Friday.

UPDATE: Philadelphia releases CB Cliff Harris, WR Jamel Hamler, and place OT Jason Peters and DT Mike Patterson on the Phyiscally Unable to Perform list. G Mike Gibson was also placed on the IR with a hip flexor.
