The Philadelphia Eagles decided to cut quarterback Mike Kafka after attempts to trade him fell through, Eagles Insider reported Friday.
Kafka was the odd man out to back up Michael Vick after rookie Nick Foles and veteran Trent Edwards played well in the preseason.
"There was great competition at the QB position," coach Andy Reid said. "That's what football and training camp is all about. In the end, we had to make the difficult decision to let Mike Kafka go."
Last year, the Eagles traded quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round pick.
