Roster Cuts Begin With LB Corey Nelson

The Eagles were excited to have the opportunity to pry LB Corey Nelson away from the Denver Broncos this offseason but have decided to cut him after a poor showing in the preseason.

Nelson came in on a one-year deal worth $1.6 million in hopes of staying healthy and proving he belonged in the NFL. Through 3 preseason games, Nelson recorded just 3 tackles on a total of 92 plays and 54 defensive snaps.

The veteran slid down the depth chart after an unimpressive camp and will now be looking for a new home. 

As reported earlier, the Eagles will save $1 million in cap space and likely gain a 2019 6th-round compensation draft pick. The team has one game remaining before they need to slim the roster down to 53 before taking on the Falcons on September 6th.
