Eagles Release DT Lott
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - The Eagles made a minor roster move on Thursday, moving on from backup defensive tackle Derrick Lott.
Lott, a 6-foot-4, 315-pound prospect out of Tennessee-Chattanooga, signed with the Eagles in May but never made any waves during offseason work despite the absence of starting under tackle Fletcher Cox for most of the spring.
Philadelphia is very strong on the interior up front, at least in the starting lineup with the recently-extended Cox lining up next to talented nose tackle Bennie Logan but the depth is lacking with free-agent pickup Mike Martin easing ahead of Taylor Hart as Cox's understudy and Beau Allen handling caddie duties for Logan.
Others in the mix inside are undrafted rookie free agents Destiny Vaeao and Connor Wujciak.
Lott was originally signed an undrafted free agent by the Tennessee Titans in 2015 and spent some time on Tampa Bay's practice squad last season.
