Eagles releasing veteran LB Mychal Kendricks, per source. Kendricks spent six years with Eagles; he’s not expected to be unemployed long.

Interesting timing.

Especially with Worillow just going down. Back to being super thin at LB. 

Better hope that Hicks stays healthy.

Smfh.

You could have at least got a decent draft pick for him. I don't like this move. I'll trust in Howie, but I do NOT like this one bit.

My assumption is they've been trying to trade him for a LONG time and couldn't get anything.

Which makes no sense. He was a good to very good linebacker last year. I don't get it.

Don't understand unless we're signing someone soon. If we're not adding to the roster might as well have kept him. I'm sure a shoe is about to drop.

Yeah the timing says something is coming. Why cut a dude as soon as OTAs start.

Let's not got crazy. He's still a limited LB. For a team that runs two LBs primarily, you can't be a liability in any aspect of the game. And even though he excels in some areas, he gets exposed in coverage. His best talents were wasted here. And his money is best spent elsewhere on the roster.

Maybe Mychal made demands to Howie and Howie dropped the hammer lol

It's no assumption. It's the truth. It's been highly publicized. Wouldn't have Howie traded him even for a 7th? That kind of says something about other team's interests in him. Unless there's something in his contract that allows us more cap room by releasing him than trading him.

Obviously to cut cash but questionable move considering we just lost a LB for the season.

Calling it now he goes to Minny with his brother.

I mean if you look at the LB position it's not exactly as if we're in bad straights right now. We only field 2 LBers at a time typically regardless.

But lets say we go with 3.

OLB: Nigel Bradham//Nathan Gerry
ILB: Jordan Hicks//Joe Walker
OLB: Corey Nelsen//Kamu Grugier-Hill

I'm honestly ok with this. Don't even have to deal with Najee Goode.
