The Philadelphia Eagles have released veteran cornerback Ron Brooks. The Eagles announced Brooks’ exit along with several others Wednesday morning.

Brooks signed with the team last year as a free agent after previously playing for the Buffalo Bills. He was a fourth-round pick from LSU in 2012.

Along with Brooks being released, the team also waived former CFL cornerback Mitchell White.

While the team continues to tighten up their roster, in advance of the regular season, there are a couple of new additions. To fill the roster spots left by Brooks and the White, the Eagles signed linebackers Carlos Fields and Christian Tago.

These recent moves come as the Eagles gear up to face-off in their final preseason game against the New York Jets on Thursday night.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said all of his healthy players could be available to play against the Eagles on Thursday night — and that includes quarterbacks Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

Bowles wouldn't reveal his plans yesterday for the game, but also didn't rule out playing all three QBs. On Monday, Bowles announced that McCown will be the Jets' starter in Week 1 at Buffalo on September 10th.
