Report says Eagles release WR Chris Givens - [Full Article]

The cuts have started -- and this one is fairly surprising.

According to Rand Getlin of NFL Network, the Eagles have released receiver Chris Givens, the veteran they signed this past offseason.

Givens had just one catch in three preseason games for 19 yards.

The Eagles have yet to confirm or announce the release. The team signed Givens to a one-year deal for $840,000 with $180,000 guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact: 

What the Eagles do at receiver when it comes to final cuts will be interesting. Likely locks are Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Dorial Green-Beckham, with Randle and Turner's chances now increased. In fact, it may have been Turner's play to this point that cost Givens.
