It's past the trading deadline, the Eagles have tanked the season, he was going to be a salary cap casualty in the offseason, and he was currently blocking a former 1st round draft pick and a former 2nd round pick and taking their reps. Doesn't mean he can't play or that he can't be a valuable player on another franchise.
I would have reduced his snaps and tried to flip him for a draft pick in the offseason, but I'm guessing there's not a lot of calm rational thought and foreward longterm vision going on at Eagles Headquarters at the moment.
