Brian Rolle got a call from an unknown “215″ number this morning, and immediately took it as a bad sign.
“I thought, I guess I’m getting released. If its a ’215′ number and I don’t have, that can’t be good,” Rolle said.
The call was from head coach Andy Reid, telling Rolle that he had in fact been cut.
The Eagles had not been in contact with Jamaal Jackson as of Monday morning. Here’s a look at some possible candidates to add depth to the center position:
The Eagles have waived cornerback Trevard Lindley and added offensive lineman Nathan Menkin. Also, updates on Julian Vandervelde, Brett Brackett and Mike Kafka.
Teams have until Friday night at 9 p.m. to trim their rosters down to 53.
For now, coaches and general managers are focused on making sure they keep the right guys. They’re exploring potential trades (as Andy Reid explained yesterday) and probably making practice-squad projections.
But they’re also looking at what’s going on around the league. With 31 other teams forced to let go of 22 guys each, Reid and Howie Roseman will need to have opinions formed on a new pool of about 682 players.
The Eagles have until 9 p.m. Friday to cut their roster down to 53.
That means 22 players currently on the squad will be told not to show up next week.
Keeping that in mind, here are 10 players who are sitting squarely on the roster bubble.
From Demetress Bell to Dennis Kelly to Damaris Johnson, here’s a player-by-player look at the Eagles’ offensive performance after having re-watched Friday night’s game against the Browns.

The battle continues.
Yesterday, T-Mac provided us with a good laugh with his latest 53-man roster projection.
Now it’s my turn. I’ve got some changes from last week. Here goes nothing.
From Demetress Bell to Bryce Brown, here’s a player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles’ offense against the Steelers, after having re-watched the game.
Pretty much every discussion about the 2012 Eagles involves a mention about Michael Vick’s ability to stay healthy and Mike Kafka’s ability to back him up.
Some will also throw in LeSean McCoy’s heavy 2011 workload and the competition between Dion Lewis, Bryce Brown and Chris Polk to back him up.
But what about the offensive line?
