Former Texas linebacker Emmnauel Acho is out of a job after being waived by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Acho recently injured his thumb, which might have contributed to his release.

In two seasons, Acho made 20 appearances with Philadelphia and logged two starts. At Texas, Acho made first-team All-Big 12 before being drafted by Cleveland in the sixth round of the 2012 draft.
