Eagles Release Rau, 3 Others

In an effort to trim the roster down to 75 players, the Eagles released CB Chris Hawkins, WR Ronald Johnson, and LBs Ryan Rau and Marcus Dowtin. None had a realistic chance of making the 53-man roster, but Ryan Rau did have his moments at training camp last year.

Chris Hawkins has also seen snaps in NFL regular season action, but never had a chance to prove himself in Philadelphia. Johnson suffered a gruesome leg injury prior to last season, and Dowtin was a mid-season practice squad addition.
