Philadelphia Eagles release Dorial Green-Beckham

Eagles waive WR Dorial Green-Beckham, sign QB Dane Evans

The franchise also let him go after one season after he reeled in 32 catches for 549 yards and 4 TDs as a rookie.

In his lone season with the Eagles, Green-Beckham appeared in 15 games with seven starts, catching 36 passes for 392 receiving yards and 2 TDs. With 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor reportedly shining this offseason, Green-Beckham would've faced competition from Gibson and a few other players for the possibility of one roster spot, needing the Eagles to keep six wide receivers just to have a chance. After sitting out the 2014 season, he entered the 2015 National Football League draft.

And then the Eagles overhauled the wide receiver position.

Green-Beckham, 24, joined the Eagles last August in a training-camp trade with the Tennessee Titans for offensive tackle Dennis Kelly. Working with rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, sophomore Green-Beckham was an incredible headache making only two touchdown catches.

The athletic freak without the heart, Green-Beckham continued to plague his career with drops and incorrect route running.

Dorial Green-Beckham is having a hard time getting his footing in the NFL.

Philadelphia bolstered their receiving core during the offseason with the additions of Alshon Jeffrey and Torrey Smith, making Green-Beckham's departure nearly guaranteed.

Considering Green-Beckham's size, athleticism, and youth, it wouldn't be a shocker to see him sign with another team this off-season.
