CUTS, TRADE RUMORS, AND UPDATES
[7:29 PM ET] - Howie Roseman finally makes a trade! The Eagles send a conditional draft pick to the Bears in exchange for defensive back Deiondre’ Hall. (Read more)
[4:13 PM ET] - Hey, cuts were due in before 4:00 PM ET. What’s the hold up, Eagles?!
[4:12 PM ET] - Sorry, Josh Adams fans. The Bucks County native has reportedly been waived. I’d imagine the Eagles would like to get him on their practice squad. (Source: NFL Network)
[4:00 PM ET] - Non-cuts news: It’ll reportedly be Nick Foles starting Week 1, not Carson Wentz. (Source: NFL Network)
[3:44 PM ET] - Former Eagles wide receiver Marcus Johnson, who got traded to the Seahawks in the Michael Bennett deal, has been traded to the Indianapolis Colts. Frank Reich gets some WR help. The Eagles and Colts play in Week 3. (Source: @BradyHenderson)
[3:39 PM ET] - Now Schrager is saying Mailata WILL make the team for sure. Great to see. (Source: @PSchrags)
[3:19 PM ET] - Sounds like Jordan Mailata is going to make the Eagles’ 53-man roster. NFL reporter Peter Schrager says he’s “hearing very good things” in regards to the Australian native. Not a surprise but good to see nonetheless. (Source: @PSchrags)
[1:08 PM ET] - Here’s a noteworthy one: De’Vante Bausby is getting cut. The 25-year-old had a strong spring and even split first team nickel cornerback reps with Sidney Jones in training camp. But he fell out of that battle with the emergence of Avonte Maddox. Bausby was the 54th man on my 53-man roster projection. He gave it a good shot but it just wasn’t enough. Roster is down to 78 players. (Source: NBCSP)
[12:06 PM ET] - Donnel Pumphrey tweeted “Thank you philly for everything.” Sounds like the 2017 fourth-round pick has been cut. The Eagles might try to put him on the practice squad if he passes through waivers. Roster is down to 79 players. (Read more)
[10:51 AM ET] - Former Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis beat out Robert Aguayo for the Chargers’ kicking job. This is good for Philadelphia’s compensatory pick formula. The Eagles will potentially be able to retain the 2019 seventh-round comp pick they’re projected to receive.
[10:33 AM ET] - The Eagles released undrafted rookie offensive tackle Toby Weathersby. Might be a practice squad guy. Roster is down to 80 players. (Source: NJ.com)
[8:52 AM ET] - Not directly Eagles related but it’s pretty big NFL news: The Raiders are reportedly trading Khalil Mack to the Bears. Lol Gruden. The Eagles connection here is that the NFC just got even tougher.
[8:44 AM ET] - Welcome to Saturday’s tracker. The Eagles’ roster unofficially stands at 81 players. As seen in Friday’s tracker, the following nine players have reportedly been cut so far: Darius Prince, Danny Ezechukwu, Aaron Evans, Rashard Davis, Joe Callahan, Billy Brown, Jon Toth, Gannon Sinclair, and Christian Hackenberg.
