Eagles Cut Three Players Including DE Taylor Hart


The Philadelphia Eagles announced Sunday that they’ve waived three players including DT Taylor Hart, CB C.J. Smith and WR Paul Turner.

Last week, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that the Eagles were shopping Hart for trade offers, but apparently they didn’t have an offers worth pursuing.

Hart, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2014. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,435,512 rookie contract, which included a $215,512 signing bonus.

Hart was set to make base salaries of $600,000 and $690,000 over the next two years.

In 2015, Hart appeared in 14 games for the Eagles and recorded 27 tackles and no sacks. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 122 interior defensive lineman out of 123 qualifying players last year.

McCray, 25, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Catawba back in May of 2014. He’s in the final year of his contract and stands to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season before becoming a restricted free agent.

In 2015, McCray recorded five tackles over the course of eight games.
