The Philadelphia Eagles made two interesting cuts on Wednesday by releasing veteran quarterback Koy Detmar and wide receiver Todd Pinkston. Although Pinkston has never really had a solid season with the Eagles, and he missed all of last season due to a torn Achilles' tendon. He has also had soreness in his ankles throughout the preseason. Despite the Eagles' lack of depth at the position, Pinkston became expendable after the team acquired receiver Donte' Stallworth from the New Orleans Saints.

Detmer has been with the Eagles since 1998 and has served as the team's backup quarterback and holder for the Eagles ever since. After the Eagles signed veteran quarterback Jeff Garcia in the offseason as the primary backup quarterback, it was believed that Detmar's job could be in jeopardy. After releasing Detmar though, the Eagles signed quarterback A.J. Feeley to a deal. Feeley was the team's backup quarterback in 2002, when he started five games. He was then traded to the Miami Dolphins after the 2003 season.

"It's a place where I had success," said Feeley. "It's hard to not want to come back to that. Plus, it's Philadelphia. It's a place I loved being at."

The Eagles' primary receivers will be Reggie Brown, Stallworth, and Hank Baskett.
