Eagles Cut Pinkston and Detmer, Sign Feeley
The Philadelphia Eagles today released wide receiver Todd Pinkston and signed one reserve quarterback, A.J. Feeley, to replace another, Koy Detmer.
Pinkston was released on the heels of the Eagles' acquisition of wideout Donte Stallworth in a trade with the New Orleans Saints. The former starter is trying to return from a ruptured Achilles' tendon that caused him to miss all of last season, and the progress of his rehabilitation sometimes has been slower than club officials anticipated.
His departure leaves Greg Lewis, Darnerien McCants, Jabar Gaffney and rookies Hank Baskett and Jason Avant vying for roster spots and playing time behind Reggie Brown and Stallworth.
The team signed Feeley, a former Eagle who just had been released by the San Diego Chargers. He replaces Detmer, the club's longtime backup to Donovan McNabb who was supplanted when the Eagles signed Jeff Garcia as a free agent in the offseason.
