The Eagles will not re-sign their own free agents, including MLB Stewart Bradley, the Philadelphia Enquirer reported.

They will not re-sign Bradley, S Quintin Mikell, CB Dimitri Patterson, RB Jerome Harrison, OG Max Jean-Gilles, P Sav Rocca and OG-C Nick Cole.

Bradley finished the 2010 season on injured reserve after coming off ACL surgery that cost him the 2009 season. In 12 starts last season, Bradley recorded 60 tackles.

Mikell started 15 games last season and recorded 15 passes defensed. He has spent eight seasons in Philly. Patterson started nine games last season and picked off four passes.

Rocca had been the team's punter for four seasons. Harrison played in just eight games in 2010, rushing for one touchdown. Jean-Gilles started 10 games last season.

The way we see it

Cutting Bradley is a bit of a surprise, but he struggled after ACL surgery. Second-round draft pick Jaiquawn Jarrett appears to have the inside track on being Mikell's replacement.
