Eagles invite 27 tryout players to 2019 rookie minicamp

The Philadelphia Eagles have invited a total of 27 tryout players to the team’s 2019 rookie minicamp beginning today on Friday, May 10.

These players don’t count against the 90-man offseason roster limit; they’ve only been invited to rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Eagles are mostly just looking for extra bodies to fill practice reps this weekend. As you can see below, some of the guys are local players.

The Eagles actually ended up signing four of their tryout players from last year: Tim Wilson, Jaboree Williams, Adam Reth, and Kyle Wilson. None of those guys even made the practice squad but they did at least get to spend time with the team in training camp.

One especially interesting tryout in this year’s group is Weston Steelhammer (outstanding name). The Eagles brought the Air Force safety in for a tryout back in 2017 but he couldn’t sign an NFL contract until after spending at least two years in the service. Doug Pederson previously noted Steelhammer is “a guy that I knew when I coached high school ball – he grew up with my son.”

The Eagles’ roster is currently full at 90 players so the team will have to cut someone if they want to sign a tryout player.
