Eagles Cut Ties With Todd Herremans
Herremans, 32, has been with the Eagles since the club selected him in the fourth round of the 2005 draft and has played up and down the offensive line. He has started at every single position except for center for Philadelphia.
Cutting Herremans, the Eagles avoid paying his $4 million base salary for the 2015 season and saves the Eagles $2.8 million in 2015 cap space.
It would appear that the names on the current roster that would get a crack at the starting right guard spot would be Allen Barbre, Matt Tobin or Andrew Gardner. Barbre ended the season on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain, after filling in for Lane Johnson at right tackle. Barbre is signed on the cheap through 2017. Meanwhile Tobin appeared in 13 games, making seven starts last season but his struggles got him benched, leading to a chance for the journeyman veteran Gardner who is signed through next season.
