Eagles roster cuts 2015: Raheem Mostert waived

New, comments

This won't be a popular move.

The Philadelphia Eagles have waived Raheem Mostert, according to a tweet from his agent, Brett Tessler.

This move will be disappointing to some fans, but it was not completely unexpected. The undrafted rookie free agent running back had a good summer, but he got caught up in a numbers game on the Eagles' depth chart. Mostert was behind DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, and possibly Kenjon Barner as well.

Speaking of Barner, this seems to bode well for his chances of making the final roster. Earlier today it was reported that Barner was made available for trade. That still might be true if the Eagles only want to keep three running backs, but one could argue Barner has earned his roster spot on the Eagles.

Mostert is still practice squad eligible and could very well clear waivers and make it to the practice squad. Only time will tell in that regard.

UPDATE: This seems like a positive sign:
