The Eagles announced they have released CB Cre’Von LeBlanc.

LeBlanc is a veteran the Eagles reportedly like a lot, so this move is a bit of a surprise. It’s also possible this is just a procedural move while Philadelphia sorts out its roster.
It does leave the Eagles with just four cornerbacks currently on the active roster.
LeBlanc, 26, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic back in 2016. He was among New England’s final roster cuts and was quickly claimed off waivers by the Bears.
Chicago elected to cut LeBlanc loose coming out of the preseason in 2018 and the Lions later signed him to their practice squad. Detroit waived him in November and he was later claimed off waivers by the Eagles.
Philadelphia signed LeBlanc to a one-year extension in 2019.
In 2019, LeBlanc appeared in four games for the Eagles and recorded eight tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
