The Philadelphia Eagles officially trimmed their roster to the 53-man limit on Saturday but that doesn’t mean the team is done making changes. The Eagles may release players and sign others before their Week 1 game against Washington.
Sunday’s action involves the NFL waiver wire and the formation of a 10-man practice squad. The Eagles rank 25th in the NFL waiver wire order so Howie Roseman will have to hope the 24 teams ahead of them don’t want a player so that the Eagles’ claim can be successful. The waiver period ends at 12:00 PM ET today.
As far as the practice squad is concerned, read this FAQ for more information on salary, eligibility, rules, etc. Teams can officially begin forming practice squads starting after 1:00 PM ET.

[4:30 PM ET] - *** OFFICIAL: EAGLES SIGN NINE PLAYERS TO THEIR PRACTICE SQUAD ***
[2:56 PM ET] - The Jets are reportedly signing Eagles 2018 leading rusher Josh Adams to their practice squad. Joe Douglas connection. (Source: ESPN)

[2:23 PM ET] - The Cowboys are reportedly signing Clayton Thorson to their practice squad. Huh. Lots of NFC East incest today with Smallwood to Washington, Lauletta to Philly, and now Thorson to Dallas. (Source: Dallas Morning News)
[2:21 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly signing Alex Singleton to their practice squad! Good to see him stick around after he talked about possibly going back to the CFL. Maybe the Eagles are paying him roster money. (Source: NJ.com)
[2:12 PM ET] - Former Vikings cornerback Craig James is reportedly set to work out for the Eagles. Philly could’ve claimed James on waivers if they wanted him on the roster ... so maybe he’s in consideration for the practice squad? Or the Eagles just wanted to do more homework on him before adding him to the roster? (Source: St. Paul Pioneer Press)
[2:11 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly signing Sua Opeta to their practice squad. More OL depth. (Source: Adam Caplan)
[1:42 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly signing Falcons 2019 sixth-round pick Marcus Green to their practice squad. The 5-8, 191 pound Green is a wide receiver/kick returner type who also logged 51 college rushing attempts. Gadget guy. (Source: NJ.com)

[12:58 PM ET] - Josh Adams, Treyvon Hester, and Greg Ward are notably among former Eagles players who did not get picked up on waivers. Surprised that Hester didn’t get claimed. Maybe they’ll be back on the practice squad? (Source: NFL Network and Adam Caplan)
