Report: Eagles to Release Nate Herbig
The Eagles will release guard Nate Herbig, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network.
That report came Monday afternoon, after the team listened to trade offers, but couldn't find a deal for the former undrafted free agent from Stanford.
The Eagles' decision to release Herbig is a little surprising, after he made 17 starts the past two seasons, but it shows the depth the team has along the offensive line.
The team is expected to start Landon Dickerson at left guard, with Isaac Seumalo, Jack Driscoll, Sua Opeta and Cam Jurgens battling for the right guard spot, making Herbig expendable.
Herbig, 23, was a young player who gained plenty of experience on the Eagles offensive line with various injuries the past two seasons.
His release could be good news for offensive line needy teams. Herbig can play guard and center and should fine a job rather quickly on the free-agent market.
