Eagles to Release Kearse

Saturday, February 23, 2008 ·

Jevon Kearse's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed that the Eagles will be releasing the defensive end. Rosenhaus said that they wanted to restructure his contract with the Eagles, but they were unsuccessful.

“Yeah, we expect Jevon to be released,” Rosenhaus said outside the media room at the NFL scouting combine. “I expect Jevon to be a free agent. We tried to work out a [contract] restructure with the Eagles. We thought he had a wonderful career there, they’re a great organization. We weren’t able to do it.”

We all knew that Jevon Kearse would most likely be released after his injury-plagued career with the Eagles. I don't mind the move at all with Kearse owed a lot of money and also getting up in age. I'd also love to see Darren Howard released as well, along with McDougle. They certainly need to address the position in the offseason. Trent Cole is a stud, but there is not any emerging stars currently on the roster to play opposite of him. Juqua Thomas has some spurts, but he's not a full-time starter. I'd expect them to look at a mid-level free-agent or possibly Justin Smith who had a down year last season with the Bengals.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.
