Eagles release four-time Pro Bowler Trotter in surprise move


Aw, Here It Goes!
PHILADELPHIA -- Jeremiah Trotter, one of the fiery leaders of the Philadelphia Eagles defense for much of the last decade, was released Tuesday in a surprise move that may lead to his retirement.
Trotter, a four-time Pro Bowl selection at middle linebacker in two stints with the team, learned of the decision in a meeting with Eagles coach Andy Reid on Monday night that both men described as emotional.
"It's a tough pill to swallow, but everyone gets to this point in their career at some point or another, and now is my time," the 30-year-old Trotter said at a news conference. "I'm just thankful that I spent this many years in Philadelphia. I truly believe that if you were to cut me, I'd bleed green."


why did they cut him? he is only 30 and is still a great mlb. he won't be a fa for long.
