Observations

  • I don’t think Corey Clement is going to get cut but it’d sure be nice to see him back out on the field.
  • The Eagles continue to prioritize having Mailata and Pryor soak up all the snaps they can get. Pryor played at both guard and tackle in last night’s game.
  • The Eagles seem to be hoping that Nate Herbig can push Stefen Wisniewski off the roster. They replaced Wis, who was struggling with snapping the ball, with Herbig at center. It’s worth noting that Herbig and T.J. Edwards tied for receiving the most guaranteed money ($87,500) of any Eagles undrafted rookie free agent signing.
  • Mack Hollins’ offensive workload was limited but he did handle a decent chunk of the special teams snaps. His value on Dave Fipp’s unit could earn him his roster spot.
  • Miles Sanders saw his snap count slightly increase after only taking six snaps last week. The Eagles don’t need to be playing him too much given the ability he’s already flashed.
  • Donnel Pumphrey saw the least playing time of any offensive player who actually played.
  • The Eagles are giving Johnathan Cyprien a chance to take a lot of snaps. He seems like the favorite for the fourth safety spot.
