Philadelphia Eagles release running back Wendell Smallwood

When the Philadelphia Eagles chose to load up in the trenches and keep 20 linemen on their initial 53 man roster, including preseason star Daeshon Hall and surprise UDFA addition Nate Herbig (more on him here), it created a cascading effect across the board. Now, they are parting ways with fellow running back Wendell Smallwood, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Both players were expendable because the Eagles acquired Jordan Howard from Chicago and drafted Miles Sanders in the second round. Smallwood, a fifth-round pick in 2016, had 364 yards rushing three TDs along with 230 yards receiving and two TD receptions. He ended the season on the injured reserve list.

Smallwood's best season came previous year, when he participated in all 16 games and registered 364 yards and three touchdowns while averaging 4.2 yards per carry.

The Philadelphia Eagles made some surprising cuts and one undrafted rookie appears to be the teams future at middle linebacker after Wisconsin star, T.J. Edwards made the 53 man roster.
