Eagles cut Trent Cole

The Philadelphia Eagles cut veteran pass rusher Trent Cole, according to a source. Contract talks broke down between the two sides. "We spoke with Trent and his agent and expressed a desire to have him back,” coach Chip Kelly said. "We have been talking for a couple of weeks. However, at this point, we think it’s best to let him explore other options.” The Eagles have now cut tight end James Casey, offensive guard Todd Herremans and cornerback Cary Williams. Cole is a two-time Pro Bowl selection who has 85.5 sacks and 19 forced fumbles in 10 seasons. The Eagles are trying to hold onto Brandon Graham and Jeremy Maclin.
