After the Eagles released their longest tenured player due to a non-guaranteed $4 million salary for this season, Todd Herremans found his way to Indianapolis. Now just 3 weeks before the season is over, it’s back to square one.
ROSTER UPDATE: We have signed free agent OLB Andy Studebaker and waived G Todd Herremans and ILB Amarlo Herrera. https://t.co/NXqrcPKKEB

The Eagles were able to free up $2.8 million in cap space by releasing Herremans but with news of his release, it wouldn’t be the worst idea to considering re-signing him as a backup if he passes through the waivers.
The 33 year old only started two games for the struggling Colts this year who ended up benching him mid way through. Since then he’s been made a healthy scratch and eventually released.
After starting 124 games for Philly and evidently knowing the Offense, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring someone back as a short term fix for when the line struggles. But would Chip be willing to bring back a player after releasing him for financial reasons? Probably not.
