The Eagles opted to part ways with the LSU product and held onto former Oregon standout Jeff Maehl.
Clay Harbor was let go in favor of Emil Igwenagu. The tight end now works for Gus Bradley.

The Eagles only have three outside linebackers on the roster: Brandon Graham, Trent Cole and Connor Barwin.
Another outside linebacker who was let go, Adrian Robinson, has been claimed off waivers by the Broncos, per Adam Caplan.
According to multiple outlets, the Eagles have been in contact with 24-year-old cornerback Roc Carmichael, who was recently waived by the Texans. The 5-10, 197-pound Virginia Tech product appeared in six games for Houston last season.
