Eagles Release Three More
The Eagles continue to make cuts as they make room for a group of undrafted free agents.
On Monday, they released safety Jerome Couplin and wide receiver Freddie Martino. Today, they parted ways with linebacker Brandon Hepburn, running back Ross Scheuerman and fullback Ryan Mueller.
Mueller’s signing was celebrated by many, as it signaled a return to a style of football that includes a fullback. While it seems very likely Doug Pederson will still carry one into the season, Mueller for the moment is on the outside looking in.
Hepburn was signed to the practice squad in 2014. He was placed on injured reserve in November. Scheuerman is a Lafayette product. He also had brief stints with the Packers and Steelers.
Couplin was placed on Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury in November. He was one of two undrafted rookies to make the Lions opening-day roster in 2014, before spending time in Buffalo that same year. Couplin was eventually signed to the Eagles’ 53-man roster off the Lions’ practice squad.
Martino was signed by the Eagles last summer before being waived and added to the practice squad.
