The Philadelphia Eagles announced Friday they have waived wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham after one season with the team.

In his lone campaign as an Eagle, Green-Beckham registered 36 receptions for 392 yards and two touchdowns.

The Tennessee Titans selected Green-Beckham in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft, and he made 32 catches for 549 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie.

The Titans traded him to the wideout-needy Eagles prior to the 2016 season, but he failed to build on a solid debut.

Philadelphia went to great lengths to address its wide receiver deficiencies this offseason by signing Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to team with Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor.

While there was no longer room for Green-Beckham with the Eagles, he is a physical specimen who figures to get another chance elsewhere.

At 6'5" and 225 pounds with superior leaping ability and solid speed, the potential is present for Green-Beckham to be a quality starter in the NFL provided he is able to further develop his raw skills.
