Eagles release Shawn Andrews

I guess they have finally had enough of his shenanigans: the Eagles have released offensive lineman Shawn Andrews. The former Pro Bowler has had a tumultuous last few seasons, to say the least, as he has battled injuries and depression that have caused him to play in only two games over the last two seasons. Over that time, there has been a lot of speculation as to whether Andrews had really been hurt or that he has simply lost his desire to play football.

If Andrews ever gets his head on straight, he could be a great offensive lineman again. I would bet that another team in the league will give him a shot but they shouldn't expect much from Andrews since he hasn't played a full season since 2007.

So ends another long-running Eagles career. Andrews had a ton of potential heading into the 2006 season and signed a 7 year contract with the Eagles but only managed to reach his potential for the first two seasons of the deal. I'm sure Andy Reid is happy to rid himself of the headache.
