Jacory Harris Released: Philadelphia Eagles Release Rookie Free Agent Quarterback

The Philadelphia Eagles have released rookie free agent quarterback Jacory Harris.

Harris was signed by the Eagles on May 11. Harris played quarterback for the University of Miami as a three-year starter and had 75 touchdowns (70 passing) and 8,826 passing yards, marks which were both second all-time in Miami history. Despite completing 60% of his passes in college, Harris also had accuracy issues and threw 48 interceptions.

By releasing Harris, the Birds are left with four quarterbacks for the start of OTAs: Michael Vick, Mike Kafka, Trent Edwards and third-round NFL Draft pick Nick Foles. The Eagles also have one open roster spot.
