Philadelphia Eagles waived/injured former CFL cornerback

So much for that.

NFL: Preseason-Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles waived/injured cornerback Elie Bouka on Monday afternoon, according to an official announcement from the team.

Bouka, 25, signed with the Eagles earlier this offseason. He originally played in the Canadian Football League before signing with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016.

Speaking of undrafted free agent signings, Bouka’s departure is likely a case of the Eagles freeing up roster spots for their incoming UDFAs. The Eagles’ roster currently stands at 73 players, which is 17 shy of the 90-man offseason limit.

We don’t officially know all of the Eagles’ undrafted free agent additions but we have a pretty good idea thanks to our UDFA tracker.

With Bouka gone, the Eagles have the following players under contract at cornerback: Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox (draft rights), D.J. Killings, De’Vante Bausby, Randall Goforth. Bausby is the oldest player of that group at 25 years old.
