                      === Eagles cut Dixon, 11 others ===
 
 Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Being familiar with Chip Kelly didn't help
 Dennis Dixon make the Philadelphia Eagles.
 
 The  former Oregon  quarterback was one of  12 players cut by Kelly -- Dixon's
 offensive coordinator in Eugene -- and the Eagles on Friday.
 
 Philadelphia  also released  the  following 11  players: linebackers  Everette
 Brown  and Adrian  Robinson, veteran  defensive tackle  Antonio Dixon,  rookie
 defensive  end  David King, a  2013 seventh-round  draft pick out of Oklahoma,
 quarterback  G.J. Kinne, offensive linemen Matt Kopa, Dallas Reynolds and Matt
 Tennant,  cornerback Trevard Lindley and wide receivers Ifeanyi Momah and Will
 Murphy.
 
 The  team  also placed rookie defensive  end Joe Kruger on the injured reserve
 list  with a  shoulder injury suffered in Philadelphia's preseason loss to the
 New York Jets on Thursday.
 
 The  Eagles roster now stands at 62 players. All NFL teams are required to cut
 down to 53 players by 6 pm ET on Saturday, August 31.
