Eagles Release Another Cornerback
The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that they have released another cornerback to make room for running back Jason Huntley from New Mexico State.

After Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas got released, Cre’Von LeBlanc happens to be the next cut. Leblanc signed a contract extension last year to keep him through this season. This is a bit of surprise after the Eagles released Jones and Douglas yesterday. Now, you have to wonder what corners they even have left besides Darius Slay. The Eagles have a ton of safeties on the roster who might be able to play corner but it could be a risk. They could just be hoping LeBlanc clears waivers to re-sign him.
As of right now, the Eagles corners are Darius Slay, Craig James, Nickell Robey-Coleman, and Avonte Maddox. I would have to imagine some sort of a move will be made soon, as the Eagles play their first game literally one week from today.
