Middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter was released by the Eagles on Tuesday, a surprising end to the Pro Bowl playerâ€™s second stint with Philadelphia.
Coach Andy Reid informed Trotter of his decision Monday night during an emotional meeting. Trotter was a fan favourite because of his intensity, big hits and candor
â€œJeremiah and I have been together for many years and heâ€™s played a vital role in helping this team win a lot of football games,â€ Reid said in a statement. â€œHe developed himself into a Pro Bowl middle linebacker through a lot of hard work and desire. In my mind, he will always be a Philadelphia Eagle and Iâ€™m sure he feels the same way.
