The Philadelphia Eagles waived two players from their roster on the day before everyone is set to report to the NovaCare Complex for training camp. Wide receiver Marquess Wilson and cornerback Randall Goforth are no longer part of the team, according to an official announcement.
The Eagles’ roster now stands at 87 players, which is three shy of the 90-man offseason limit.
Wilson (wearing No. 81 in the picture above this article) was signed to a futures contract back in January. I thought he had a chance to make the team as a fifth or sixth receiver but clearly that isn’t the case. Wilson didn’t do a ton to stand out in spring drills. He also missed some practice time with a nagging injury.
Goforth originally signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free rookie agent last year. He suffered a torn ACL in training camp and spent the entire year on injured reserve. Now he’s going forth off the Eagles’ roster. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)
We’ll soon see if the Eagles make any new additions to the roster in time for camp. There’s been a ton of speculation that that’ll re-sign veteran safety Corey Graham, who is still a free agent.
