Jevon Kearse Gets the Ax, Reed Signed, Hanson Tendered

Thursday, February 28, 2008 ·

In a series of moves today, the Eagles cut former pro-bowl defensive end, Jevon Kearse, signed safety, J.R. Reed to a one-year contract, and gave cornerback, Joselio Hanson, a one-year tender offer. If another club signs Hanson to an offer sheet, the Eagles have seven days to match it. If the Eagles fail to do so, they will receive a second-round pick as compensation.

Jevon Kearse played 4 seasons with the Eagles, but missed 19 games during that span and never had more than 7 1/2 sacks in a season.

This was move we all knew was going to happen. Kearse in-efficient play during much of his Eagles career has been criticized with the rest of the Eagles' lack of defensive pressure. Kearse would have been due around 8 million if he played and his cap hit for his release will be somewhat around 4 million.

With regard to Reed, he played well enough last year to earn a tryout in training camp to make the team full time as a back-up safety. Hanson is slotted to be the teams nickel cornerback next season.


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.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
