NFL Roster Cuts: Eagles officially waive 17 players to get to 53-man limit


NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers The Post-Crescent-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles officially released a big group of players on Saturday afternoon in order to cut down to the 53-man limit. Here's the entire list.


DE Alex McCalister (waived/injured)

S Tre Sullivan (waived/injured)

LB Nate Gerry

TE Billy Brown

WR Bryce Treggs

WR Greg Ward

CB C.J. Smith

OL Dillon Gordon

OG Darrell Greene

DT Justin Hamilton

CB Jomal Wiltz

RB Byron Marshall

C Aaron Neary

OG Dallas Thomas

OT Taylor Hart

OL Josh Andrews

P Cameron Johnston

A few quick thoughts:

• Both Donnel Pumphrey AND Corey Clement made the roster. That’s five running backs. Kind of ridiculous.

• Eagles fifth-round pick Nate Gerry did not make the cut. They’ll probably want him on the practice squad. Eagles fifth-round pick Shelton Gibson DID make the roster.

• Gordon, Brown, Treggs, and Smith are among the most notable cuts here. They were on the roster bubble, so it’s not a total shock, but I thought at least one of those guys would have made it.

• Just because the Eagles trimmed down to 53 doesn't mean the cuts are over yet. Expect Howie Roseman to continue to churn the bottom of the roster. The Eagles could be looking for more help at several positions, including running back, linebacker, and cornerback.
