Every year, in the early days of September, thousands of players around the NFL have their hopes dashed as they're sent packing from the team they've been a part of all summer long.
Some of these guys will never see an NFL field again. Some might catch on elsewhere. Some are guys nobody would recognize on the street, and some are superstars—even sure-fire Hall of Famers.
That's simply the harsh reality of the NFL.
Getting cut, however, does not mean that player is without talent. We've seen the same story play out of the guy who got cut over and over and over just to find the right situation and turn into a star.
Sometimes, it just comes down to numbers; the smallest variable can send a guy with a lot of talent and untapped potential walking out the door.
For the Philadelphia Eagles, they could wind up letting go of a lot of those guys.
Every team has those guys they hate to cut loose, but the Eagles seem to have an excess at nearly every position across the board and could really flood the free-agent market with a lot of discarded talent.
