Eagles Cut Five Players

     

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Sunday that they’ve waived five players as they work to get down to the 80-player limit ahead of training camp.

The full list of cuts for the Eagles includes:

  1. WR Shelton Gibson
  2. WR Marcus Green
  3. DE Daeshon Hall
  4. DT Albert Huggins
  5. CB Tremon Smith

A number of teams have already begun the process of trimming their roster down to 80 players ahead of training camp. Teams have the option to either carry 90 players as part of split squads or cut their roster down to 80 players.

Gibson, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2017. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2.65 million contract and set to make a base salary of $645,000 for the 2019 season when the Eagles waived him from injured reserve with a settlement during the preseason.

Gibson later returned to the Eagles in January. 

In 2018, Gibson appeared in 15 games for the Eagles and caught one pass for 48 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Hall, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Panthers back in 2017. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.261 million contract and set to make a base salary of $555,000 for the 2018 season when the Panthers waived him coming out of the preseason.

Hall spent time on both the 49ers and Texans’ practice squad in 2018 before being signed to the Eagles’ active roster late in the season. Philadelphia waived Hall coming out of the preseason last year before bringing him back later on. 

In 2019, Hall appeared in nine games for the Eagles and recorded five total tackles and one sack.
