The Eagles have released DeMeco Ryans , NJ.com reports.
Releasing Ryans saves the Eagles $3.5 million in salary cap space, a cost-cutting move made more palatable by the 31-year-old's on-field performance decline last season, as well as the emergence of rookie Jordan Hicks. Per the report, San Francisco could be a potential landing spot for Ryans, with former Eagles coach Chip Kelly now helming the 49ers.
DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.
Ryans will suit up for the first time since Week 6, but with a healthy linebacking corps in Philadelphia, his exact role will be a bit unclear. The 31-year-old has 23 combined tackles so far this year, but has made his presence known with both an interception and fumble recovery.
DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles .
Ryans should have some kind of role, but with the Eagles having their full stable of inside linebackers, the 31-year-old is unlikely to play more than half of the defensive snaps. Kiko Alonso, Mychal Kendricks and Jordan Hicks will also get playing time.
DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game in Dallas.
With Kiko Alonso (knee) playing for the first time since Week 2, the Philadelphia Eagles shouldn't be too affected by Ryans' absence. The 31-year-old has just 23 tackles in six games this season, as he's largely been confined to an early-down role.
DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Ryans hasn't played since Week 6 due to a lingering hamstring injury he suffered against the Giants. He did not participate in practice until Friday, and even then he was limited. If Ryans is not able to go Sunday, expect Mychal Kendricks and Jordan Hicks to divvy up the workload.
