The Philadelphia Eagles have officially trimmed their roster down to 53, ahead of the 4:00 PM EST on Saturday, August 30th deadline. Here's a full explanation if you have any questions about cut deadline day. We've got more on the 53-man roster here. Thanks for joining us today.
Cuts and updates
[1:32 PM EST] The Eagles announced their 22 cuts to get to a 53 man roster. Additonal cuts from those previous reported are Damaris Johnson, Keelan Johnson, Damion Square, Kevin Graf, Kenjon Barner, Josh Kaddu, Wade Keliipki, Will Murphy, Ed Reynolds and Matthew Tucker. In case you were wondering, the waiver period for the weekend ends at noon on Sunday. Keep in mind that they still may make a move to claim a player off waivers, as they did last year when they claimed Najee Goode. And we know that like last year, the Eagles are looking at ILBs, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see another move made tomorrow. You can track those moves here.
Or in other words, this is the 53-man roster as it stands now:
