Make that twelve.
Not long after the Eagles announced that they had released 10 players, the team cut safety Kenny Phillips, per an NFL source. ProFootballTalk.com first reported the transaction.
Linebacker Jamar Chaney was also informed of his release on Sunday. Chaney struggled playing inside as the Eagles moved to a 3-4 defense. The fourth-year linebacker was drafted in the seventh round of the 2010 draft and played in 44 games for the Eagles, starting in 23.
Phillips, despite his pedigree, was not expected to make the club. The veteran safety, who was signed as a free agent this offseason, missed the last two preseason games with a quadriceps injury. Phillips has a long history of knee injuries.
