The Philadelphia Eagles have released former All-Pro right guard Shawn Andrews.

Andrews, the 16th overall pick in the 2004 draft, missed training camp last year due to depression and went on injured reserve in September with a back injury.

He's mostly known for his strange antics around the team.

Throughout his career he's been known for singing in the locker rooms and skipping practices to work on his off-the-field cinematography.

He was once reported to be uploading videos onto YouTube during a practice he was suppose to be attending.

In 2006 and 2007, Andrews made the Pro-Bowl, but didn't attend in 2006 due to an injury suffered in a Divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

Today his twitter read, "Bye Bye Birds"

Andrews said he still plans to play football with another team.
