The Philadelphia Eagles have released former first-round offensive lineman Danny Watkins.

Watkins wasn't regarded as a strong fit under new coach Chip Kelly.

Watkins is a rare former first-round draft pick to be cut after only two seasons.

He has two years remaining on his original four-year rookie contract.

Watkins is a former Baylor standout.
