Eagles excise LB Phillips

The Philadelphia Eagles have finally made a transaction, announcing on Tuesday afternoon that linebacker Jason Phillips has been released.

Phillips, out of TCU, was originally signed as a free agent in 2013, but suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during last year's camp and missed the remainder of the season. He was back healthy this year and competing for a spot at inside linebacker.

The 28-year-old Oklahoma native arrived in Philly after parts of two seasons suiting up for the Carolina Panthers. In 2012, he recorded 22 tackles while participating in all 16 games.

A fifth-round pick of Baltimore back in 2009, Phillips had been credited with two tackles during the Eagles' first two preseason games. He claims 31 tackles in 30 games over three NFL seasons with the Ravens and Panthers.
