Cole’s exit will be confirmed later today despite just completing his tenth season with the franchise and it gives him a leg up on the competition for free agency which begins in six days time.
The Outside Linebacker’s versatility is likely to make him a hot property in the NFL market after using a 4-3 scheme for his first eight season in Philly before switching to a 3-4 in the last two terms.
As will his sack record at 88.5 for his career, second for the Eagles behind only Reggie White.
Cole did only sign a four-year $53 million contract extension in March of 2012.
He follows another Eagles veteran out the door, Todd Herremans also released by the side last week.
