Murphy also played for Kelly at Oregon, and spent last season the practice squad.

Pratt, 23, impressed the Eagles on special teams this summer. The Palmyra native finished with seven catches for 96 yards during the preseason

Reynolds is a fifth-round pick who was caught in a numbers game. He was the first fifth-round rookie the Eagles cut since 2007, although he now remains in Philadelphia. 

Tucker spent time with the Eagles last season and scored four touchdowns this preseason.

**Wide receiver Damaris Johnson was claimed off waivers by the Houston Texans and defensive lineman Damion Square was claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs. Both players were waived by the Eagles on Saturday.
