Default TKO Released from eagles

Takeo Spikes was released from eagle today

Quote:
EAGLES CUT SPIKES

When we mentioned on Saturday that Eagles linebacker Takeo Spikes wasn't on the depth chart any longer and inferred that this could be a sign that the Eagles might be dumping him at some point in the future, Eagles web guy Dave Spadaro called us "absurd" and "stupid" and "incontinent." (Okay, we're exaggerating. He didn't call us stupid.)

Regardless, Spikes is now no longer an Eagle.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network and our friends at WIP radio in Philly, Spikes has been cut.

The move creates an immediate $5 million in cap space.

Spikes was traded with quarterback Kelly Holcomb and a late-round pick from the Bills to the Eagles in 2007 for defensive tackle Darwin Walker, who eventually was traded to the Bears. None of the three players currently is under contract with any NFL team.

Here the discussion that's going on over at philly's board.

seems like a move to free up some cap to get a stud WR.

He's 31, declining numbers, has not played a full season since 2004, and he is not any better than what we have and has zero upside.

I like Spikes as a player and wht he represents. He is a good guy and always has been fun on his yearly visit on Rome....BUT...he has been an injury waiting to happen for a few years now and gets cut after one year at places. I don't think we need to put money towards a guy who is on the decline but has a name.

Doesnt mean you cant bring him in for a cap friendly contract and let him earn a spot in TC. I'll give you Meco and Greenwood, but who else is sure fire better than? Diles has potential but he isnt a day 1 starter. TC depth is all Im saying.
