PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have released starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks after six seasons with the team.

The cost-cutting move announced on Tuesday came after linebacker Paul Worrilow went down with a knee injury on the first day of organized team activities. Kendricks was due to earn $5.85 million in base salary this year with a $7.6 million cap hit. He started 13 games in the regular season and three more in the playoffs last season as the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

Kendricks, a second-round pick in 2012, averaged 56 tackles per season. He had three interceptions, six forced fumbles and 14 sacks.
