Philadelphia Eagles: With kicker David Akers close to returning from a hamstring injury, the Eagles have shuffled their kicking game.It's always a good idea to waive a guy that has hit 6-7 for your team and grab a guy that hasn't kicked 6 in his entire 30 years of life. Hope you enjoy Jose Cortez, Andy Reid.
The Eagles on Tuesday claimed kicker Jose Cortez off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys and released kicker Todd France.
The release of France is surprising since he has kicked well in three games since replacing Akers, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury. France has made 6-of-7 field goals, with his only miss being a block.
