Stacy Andrews, Macho Harris, Quintin Demps and Cornelius Ingram were the most notable casualties as the Eagles trimmed their roster down to 53 today by cutting 12 players. Andrews was traded to Seattle for a late round draft pick in 2011.
The Eagles also released Chad Hall, Jordan Norwood, A.Q. Shipley, Dallas Reynolds, Fenuki Tupou, Eric Moncur, Jeff Owens, Kelley Washington and Tracy White.
King Dunlap, Jorrick Calvin, Hank Baskett and Jamar Chaney were among those survivors who were considered to be potential cut victims heading into the weekend.
Philadelphia general manager Howie Roseman will speak with the media shortly to discuss the Eagles roster changes. It was a busy weekend for the Eagles, as they made three trades.
The last minute dealing of Andrews to the Seahawks was preceded by yesterday’s acquisition of offensive lineman Reggie Wells from Arizona for a sixth round pick in next year’s draft. The lineman had started 90 games for Arizona since 2003, including 78 at left guard.
Today the Eagles acquired Antwan Barnes from the Ravens for an undisclosed pick in next year’s draft. Barnes played outside linebacker in the Ravens’ 3-4 defense last year, but played defensive end during his college days at FIU.
