Report: Eagles to Cut DB Tevard Lindley; Add Tackle
Third-year corner back Trevard Lindley will be among the players looking for work when the Eagles trim their roster to 53, Adam Caplan of The Sideline View reports.
Lindley, a fourth-round pick out of Kentucky, gets axed for the second straight season after surviving "final cuts" only to be waived before Week 1. Lindley is not practice squad eligible.
The Eagles drafted Lindley, who some thought was a first or second round talent, with the hopes that he would taker over as the slot corner. Lindley was drafted to be the successor to Joselio Hanson in the slot instead he has been released for the second straight season.
While it is not a total shock that Lindley has been released, it was more of a surprise he made the team at first, but then Eagles GM Howie Roseman hinted that he could play some safety and it made more sense.
