Dorial Green-Beckham is having a hard time getting his footing in the NFL.
The Philadelphia Eagles, who acquired the former Missouri standout receiver in a trade last season, have decided to part ways with Green-Beckham after just one season. The team announced the move on its official Twitter account on Friday morning.

In his lone season with the Eagles, Green-Beckham appeared in 15 games with seven starts, catching 36 passes for 392 receiving yards and 2 TDs. He was targeted 74 times, third on the team behind only WR Jordan Matthews and TE Zach Ertz.
Green-Beckham was a second-round pick by the Tennessee Titans in the 2015 NFL Draft. The franchise also let him go after one season after he reeled in 32 catches for 549 yards and 4 TDs as a rookie.
However, the 6-foot-5, 237-pound Green-Beckham struggled to stand out among a less-than-impressive Titans receiving corps.
In two seasons at Mizzou, the St. Louis native caught 87 passes for 1,278 yards and 17 TDs — tying for an SEC-best 12 TDs in 2013 — before being dismissed for a litany of off-the-field issues.
He transferred to Oklahoma for a year, but he was never able to take the field for the Sooners due to transfer restrictions and entered the NFL draft.
According to the 247Sports composite ranking, Green-Beckham came to Missouri rated as the nation’s No. 1 overall player.
