The Eagles released 10 players yesterday, getting their roster down to 73 players, two below the league-mandated 75.

Veteran receivers Rueben Randle (above) and Chris Givens were among those 10.

In an NFL cap that is just over $155 million, the money lost to Givens and Randle doesn’t even make a dent.

Randle came to the Eagles as an established player, one that was perhaps the most consistent and accomplished receiver on the team the second he stepped onto it. Givens, while not boasting the resume Randle did, was also a veteran the Eagles were counting on to be a reliable option on a unit filled with young players. His history with quarterback Sam Bradford didn’t hurt either.

Instead, both Randle and Givens were disappointments in their brief time with the team and are now gone.

Part of the blame certainly belongs on the players, as Randle didn’t exactly seem like a player that was giving his all during his time with the Eagles. Givens also didn’t seem very engaged him the idea of being with the team.

Instead, both players were exactly what they were in their previous stops in the NFL. Randle’s issues with working hard, and effort during games, was no secret. The fact Givens wasn’t exactly a difference maker also wasn’t breaking news.
