PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Only Reggie White has more sacks in Eagles green than Trent Cole. On Wednesday, the Eagles officially released Cole, 32, and his 85.5 career sacks, saving themselves $8.425 in 2015 cap space.

On Thursday, after Vince Wilfork released a statement to New England upon realizing the Patriots would not retain him, Cole offered his appreciation to Eagles fans.

 

Cole visited with the Tampa Bay Bucs on Thursday.
