Eagles release LB Will Witherspoon
The Philadelphia Eagles have released linebacker Will
The 29-year-old Witherspoon was acquired from St. Louis in a
trade last October. He was scheduled to earn $5 million this
season. The move was announced Friday.
Witherspoon played 12 games for the Eagles, recording 56
tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble.
Injuries forced Philadelphia to try numerous linebacker
combinations last season, and Witherspoon started in the middle and
at the weakside spot.
