In a stunning move, the Eagles released MLB Jeremiah Trotter, a 4 time Pro Bowler. No one saw this coming as Trotter had been a leader of the Eagles defense along with Brian Dawkins for the past few years.
"Jeremiah is one of my favorite guys," said Andy Reid. "There's no question that this is the toughest part of this job. He and I met about this last night and it was very emotional for the both of us. Jeremiah and I have been together for many years and he's played a vital role in helping this team win a lot of football games."
The Eagles will be holding a press conference at 1:00 PM today. The word is that Reid feels Trotter has lost a step from his former Pro Bowl self. The Eagles will make Takeo Spikes to the middle linebacker. I'll have more on this later.
