Eagles waive four

The Eagles started paring down their roster today, waiving running back Derrick Locke, defensive tackle Marlon Favorite, linebacker Brandon Peguese, and wide receiver Terrence Turner.

Rosters must be cut back from 90 to 80 players by 4:00 p.m. on Aug. 30 and then slashed to 53 on Sept. 3.

No surprises today.

Locke, a Kentucky product, has NFL talent but is a medical risk after suffering a spine injury against Auburn last season. In fact, Locke originally signed as a rookie free agent with Minnesota but failed his physical before landing with the Eagles.

Turner has NFL size and could be a practice squad candidate somewhere.
