The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their 10-man practice squad on Sunday afternoon. For a more detailed explanation on how the practice squad works, (click here).

QB Nate Sudfeld

C/G Josh Andrews

TE Billy Brown

LB Nathan Gerry

OT Dillon Gordon

DT Justin Hamilton

RB Byron Marshall

CB C.J. Smith

WR Bryce Treggs

WR Greg Ward

Here are some quick thoughts on the moves.

  • Nine of the practice squad members consist of players who were with the Eagles this offseason. So the Eagles were able to keep all their bubble guys on the practice squad. That’s nice.
  • The one new player is Sudfeld. The 23-year-old quarterback was a sixth round pick by the Redskins last year. Sudfeld was Washington’s third string quarterback this offseason. The Eagles needed a young QB to have on the practice squad as their third stringer behind Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. It’s an added bonus that the Eagles play Washington next week. Maybe they can gain some inside intel from Sudfeld.
  • The presence of Andrews and Gordon gives the Eagles 10 total offensive lineman for practice.
  • With Treggs and Ward sticking around, the Eagles didn’t have to choose between them and Shelton Gibson really after all. It also gives them eight receivers for practice.
  • 2017 fifth-round pick Nate Gerry cleared waivers and made the practice squad. Good.
