Philadelphia announced on Monday that it has released veterans, cornerback Orlando Scandrick and defensive tackle Akeem Spence.
Despite the slow start, the moves still come as a surprise for a team one year removed from being the reigning Super Bowl champions.
Spence has seen action on over 40 percent of Philadelphia’s defensive snaps this season. He’s recorded just seven tackles without a quarterback hit.

Signed earlier in the season, Scandrick appeared in three games (one start) with Philadelphia. He recorded two forced fumbles and a touchdown during that span.
It was just two weeks ago that Scandrick graded out by Pro Football Focus as the highest-rated player on the team.
As the Eagles noted, they have signed defensive tackle Anthony Rush off the Raiders’ practice squad to take up one of the roster spots.
