PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles have cut cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the team announced today.

Asomugha will be paid $4 million after being cut. He was set to earn $15 million from the Eagles if he was on the 2013 roster.

“Coach Kelly and I each had a chance to speak with Nnamdi earlier and he took the news with a lot of class,” said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman in a press release. “We expected nothing less than that from him. He has been a true pro on and off the field for this organization and our community and we wish him all the best as he continues his NFL career. We spoke to his representatives at the Combine about his future status with the team and wanted to take time to analyze and make a decision. In the end, Coach and I both felt we needed to move in a different direction at the cornerback position for 2013 and beyond.”

Asomugha signed a four-year, $60 million contract with the Eagles before the 2011 season.
