KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs wide receiver Chad Hall knows the drill all too well. His cell phone rings and it's a team executive on the other end telling him they're sorry, but they have to let him go.

Eagles Finally Riding Themselves of Practice Squad Talent

As the Eagles 53 man roster starts to take shape, I’m glad to see they cut Chad Hall. I have nothing against Hall, and he’s a very likeable guy, but one of the major problems the Eagles have had under this regime at times is a severe lack of talent evaluation. Chad Hall is simply not an NFL caliber player, and the Eagles have carried guys like him on their roster for far too...
