[9:45 PM EST] Howard Eskin reports a few things: 1) Kenjon Barner is not being shopped, 2) Najee Goode is being shopped, and 3) Jaylen Watkins has been cut.
Despite multiple reports #Eagles r not trying to trade RB Kenjon Barner but are shopping LB Najee Goode. Im told DB J. Watkins has been cut— Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) September 5, 2015
[9:40 PM EST] Safety Ed Reynolds has reportedly been cut which seems like a good sign for Jerome Couplin.
[8:00 PM EST] It sounds like the Eagles are trying to trade Jaylen Watkins. If Philadelphia can't find a trade partner, he might be released.
[7:00 PM EST] Eagles release rookie undrafted free agent tight end Eric Tomlinson. Definitely a practice squad candidate.
#Eagles have informed UDFA TE Eric Tomlinson that they're planning on releasing him, source said.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) September 4, 2015
[5:20 PM EST] Raheem Mostert's agent says the Eagles waived him. Seems like a potential good sign for Kenjon Barner.
[5:00 PM EST] I'm reporting that ESPN's report about the Eagles turning down a trade offer from the Dolphins earlier this offseason isn't true.
[4:00 PM EST] Matt Barkley has reportedly been traded to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a conditional seventh round pick. This seems to bode well for Tim Tebow's chances of making the final roster.
[1:45 PM EST] Another pick from the 2015 NFL Draft class has been cut: Randall Evans. This means the Eagles will only have three of their six picks from this year's draft on the active roster (Nelson Agholor, Eric Rowe, Jordan Hicks). Evans could be a PS candidate.

[1:25 PM EST] Here's a surprise: Chris Prosinski cut. The Eagles signed the veteran halfway through last season and he played well on special teams. This seems to bode well for Ed Reynolds and/or Jerome Couplin.

[1:10 PM EST] Eagles cut Malcolm Bunche, who is a practice squad candidate if he clears waivers. With Moffitt, Vandervelde, and Bunche gone ... maybe Josh Andrews will make the roster.
[12:50 PM EST] - Undrafted rookie Travis Raciti has been cut. No surprise.
[12:30 PM EST] Undrafted rookie free agent Brett Boyko has reportedly been waived. The Eagles gave Boyko a decent signing bonus so he could be practice squad material.
[12:15 PM EST] Running back Kenjon Barner is reportedly available for trade, via NJ.com. Maybe a good sign for Raheem Mostert?
[11:41 AM EST] The Eagles are reportedly trying to trade Najee Goode. If they can't move him, it would seem the team plans to cut him.
[11:40 AM EST] No surprises here: depth linebacker Deontae Skinner and rookie tight end Andrew Gleichert have been waived.

[11:22 AM EST] Backup offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde and wide receiver Quron Pratt have been released. Pratt spent last year on the team's practice squad.
[11:20 AM EST] Eagles waive rookie wide receiver Rasheed Bailey. The Division III home-town product had a good summer but got caught up in a numbers game. Expect to see him back on the practice squad if no one else claims him.
