Eagles roster down to 75, 22 more cuts to go!

The Eagles made a pair of moves to bring their team roster down to 75, and neither one was a surprise. As expected, Jack Ikegwuonu, a fourth round pick in the 2008 draft, was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. Ikegwuonu tore his ACL this winter and he is expected to spend the year re-habbing and getting prepared for 2009.

The Eagles also cut kicker/punter Richmond McGee. McGee was never really an option to make the team, he was simply camp fodder. While David Akers hasn't exactly lit the world on fire with his kicking lately, the Eagles would need to find someone much better than McGee to replace Akers.

The Eagles will make their final cuts sometime before Saturday at 4 pm, the deadline for teams to have their rosters set at 53. To see my predictions for who will make the team, click here.
