Cornerback Cliff Harris has gotten his NFL opportunity. And so far it hasn’t worked out.

The former All-American at Oregon who ended up kicked off the team and ultimately undrafted didn’t survive the first phase of roster reductions from 90 to 75 in Philly.

The Eagles waived Harris on Sunday, a day after dropping from 90 to 80.

Harris will now be exposed to waivers, where cornerback-needy teams (cough . . . Colts . . . cough) will have a crack at him. (Actually, the Colts have first dibs on every player waived, through the first three weeks of the regular season.)

The Eagles must make four more roster moves by Monday at 4:00 p.m. ET, and another 22 by Friday at 9:00 p.m. ET.
