The Philadelphia Eagles announced Sunday they have released 10 players, then reportedly parted ways with two additional players later in the day.
According to multiple media outlets, the Eagles released safety Kenny Phillips and linebacker Jamar Chaney.
Phillips, 26, played with the New York Giants from 2008-12. He started a combined 31 games in 2010-11, but missed nine games last year due to a knee injury.
Chaney, a seventh-round pick by Philadelphia in 2010, started all 16 games for the Eagles in 2011. Last season, he appeared in 14 games, making five starts.
The players confirmed as cut were tight end Derek Carrier, defensive end Eddie McClam, wide receiver Nick Miller, tackle Nic Purcell, defensive end Isaac Remington, tight end Will Shaw, defensive tackle Daryell Walker, cornerback Eddie Whitley, long snapper James Winchester and punter Brad Wing.
Philadelphia's roster now stands at 76 players, which means the Eagles must make one more cut by Tuesday.
