Eagles release 2017 4th-round pick Donnel Pumphrey
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Running back Donnel Pumphrey was among the players released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.
Pumphrey was a fourth-round pick in 2017 after becoming the all-time NCAA rushing leader at San Diego State. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury and missed the first three preseason games this year because of injuries. Pumphrey could return on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
The Eagles also acquired safety Deiondre’ Hall from the Bears for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2019. Hall is suspended for the first game and won’t count against the 53-man roster.
Quarterbacks Christian Hackenberg and Joe Callahan, and veteran defensive end Steven Means also were released.
Safety Chris Maragos was placed on the physically unable to perform list, and defensive tackle Tim Jernigan on reserve/non-football injury list.
The list of players released also includes: receivers Kamar Aiken, Markus Wheaton, Rashard Davis, Darius Prince, Bryce Treggs, Greg Ward and Tim Wilson; running backs Matt Jones and Josh Adams; tight ends Anthony Denham, Billy Brown and Gannon Sinclair; cornerbacks DJ Killings, De’Vante Bausby and Chandon Sullivan; linebackers Jaboree Williams, Kyle Wilson and Asantay Brown; defensive linemen Elijah Qualls, Joe Ostman, Danny Ezechukwu, Aziz Shittu and Winston Craig; offensive linemen Toby Weathersby, Aaron Evans, Jon Toth, Darrell Greene and Taylor Hart; and safeties Ironhead Gallon and Jeremy Reaves.
