Eagles cut 10, reduce roster to 65

The Eagles roster needs to be set at 53 by tomorrow but the Eagles made their first round of cuts today:

RB J.J Arrington
WR Dobson Collins
DE Pannell Egboh
TE Nate Lawrie
RB Martell Mallett
OT Jeraill McCuller
CB David Pender
CB Geoff Pope
DT Boo Robinson
S Anthony Scirrotto

The Eagles also placed DE Victor Abiamiri on the PUP list, meaning he will miss at least the first 6 weeks of the season.

There are no surprises amongst these cuts as none were considered serious contenders for a roster spot. The most recognizable name in the group is Arrington but he never got healthy enough to challenge for the third running back spot. The best of the bunch is likely Mallett, who, along with Egboh, figures to be a contender for a practice squad spot. The cutting of both Arrington and Mallett is good news for Eldra Buckley, who appears to have wrapped up a roster spot.

These moves leave the Eagles with 65 players on the roster. There will be 12 more cuts/moves by tomorrow to get them to 53.
