The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to officially announce some cuts today and/or tomorrow. The Eagles have until 4:00 PM EST on Tuesday, Sept 1. to trim their roster down to 75 players. The Eagles' roster is currently full at 90 so that means 15 spots need to be cleared.
These cuts are easy for most teams because the players who are being cut are camp bodies who never really had much of a chance to make the final roster. Keep in mind the Eagles will have to cut down to the regular season 53-man limit by 4:00 PM EST on Saturday, Aug. 5.
With that said, here are projections for the cut down to 75.
1) JaCorey Shepherd
Don't worry; the Eagles aren't cutting him. They'll just be officially moving him to injured reserve, which will clear up a roster spot. Shepherd wasn't placed on injured reserve earlier because he would have had to pass through waivers first.
2) Emmanuel Acho
The Eagles reportedly waived/injured Acho, who suffered a thumb injury.
3) Mike Coccia
Depth OL. Local kid. Already reportedly released.
4) Mike Johnson
Depth WR. Local kid. Already reportedly released.
5) Jeremy Towns
Eagles claimed him off waivers last week. Already reportedly released.
6) Alfy Hill
Depth DL. Already reportedly released.
7) Marc Anthony
Depth cornerback with a funny name. Signed during training camp.
8) Dasman McCullum
Depth OLB signed during training camp.
9) Jared Wheeler
Depth OL the Eagles signed after releasing Evan Mathis in June. Already reportedly released.
10) Kip Smith
No more need for the backup punter/kicker.
11) Kevin Monangai
The Villanova running back has had a decent preseason for himself. Maybe some team will give him a shot on the practice squad.
12) Brandan Bishop
Depth safety the Eagles signed last week.
13) Justin Tukes
Depth TE. He's played less than Eric Tomlinson and Andrew Gleichert this preseason.
14) Josh Reece
15) Kevin Graf
Depth OL was reportedly released. A little surprising since he spent last year on the practice squad.
