Eagles cut 8, roster now at 67

The Eagles have until tomorrow at 6 pm to finalize their 53 man roster. Today, they cut 8 players to get their roster down to 67, meaning there are still 14 more cuts to go.

The following players were cut:
RB Ryan Moats
WR Bam Childress
WR Jamal Jones
G Stefan Rodgers
LB Pago Togafau
CB Therrian Fontenot
CB Nick Graham
S Marcus Paschal

None of those players are a surprise. Moats is the biggest name listed there, but his days have been numbered for a while considering he was the 5th best running back in camp. He showed some promise as a rookie a few years ago but hasn't shown much improvement since. Childress and Jones both showed some flashes of potential but the Eagles already have too many receivers. Paschal also looks like he might have a future in the NFL but the Eagles are too deep at safety and there is no way they would keep more than 5 on the roster.

There are still 14 more cuts to go. Click here to see how I predicted the Eagles 53 man roster would look.
