TUESDAY, AUGUST 30
[4:20 PM ET] - The Eagles officially trimmed down to 53! CLICK HERE FOR THE ORIGINAL ROSTER.
[4:18 PM ET] - FORMER EAGLES NEWS: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside got cut by the Seahawks.
[4:09 PM ET] - We’re past the 4:00 PM deadline! Hurry up, Eagles. In the meantime, Jalen Reagor is reportedly sticking around ... for now, at least. Just because he wasn’t traded today doesn’t mean he won’t be gone soon. (Source: Mike Garafolo)
[3:54 PM ET] - JaCoby Stevens waived. The transition from safety to linebacker hasn’t really been working out for him. Roster unofficially down to 59 players. (Source: Dave Zangaro)
[3:42 PM ET] - Noah Togiai waived. Guessing he’ll be back on the practice squad for more TE depth. Roster unofficially down to 60 players. (Source: Mike Kaye)
[2:24 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Andre Chachere. I had him on my 53 due to his flashes in coverage during practice, his special teams chops, and his positional versatility. But apparently that much wasn’t enough. It will be annoying if K’Von Wallace gets kept over him. It is good to see that Reed Blankenship has a real chance to stick around. Roster unofficially down to 61 players. (Source: Mike Kaye)
[2:22 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Deon Cain. He did some nice things as a pass-catcher in practices and preseason games but it clearly wasn’t enough. He’s a safe bet to be back on the practice squad if he doesn't get claimed. With Cain and Devon Allen out, that could leave Britain Covey as WR5 if Jalen Reagor gets traded. Roster unofficially down to 62 players. (Source: Jeremy Fowler)
[2:15 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Jack Anderson. That’s a bit of a surprise considering he had a good summer and was regularly working with the second team OL. Then again, he did play a lot in the final preseason game. Does this mean Kayode Awosika is in over him? Or are they only going with nine offensive linemen? Roster unofficially down to 63 players. (Source: Jeff McLane)
[1:49 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Marvin Wilson and Kobe Smith. Both practice squad worthy if they don’t get claimed. I think Big Marv might get picked up. Roster unofficially down to 64 players. (Sources: Tom Pelissero and Matt Lombardo)
[12:02 PM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Devon Allen, Mac McCain, and Tay Gowan. It seemed like the Eagles might actually keep Allen after he flashed in the last two preseason games ... but he didn’t really do much in practices all summer. They’ll obviously hope to bring him back on the practice squad. The corners being cut isn’t surprising; they could both be back on the PS as well. Roster unofficially down to 66 players. (Sources: Matt Lombardo, Dave Zangaro, Tim McManus)
[11:15 AM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly releasing Le’Raven Clark. No surprise. There’s some speculation that the Cowboys could add him. Roster unofficially down to 69 players. (Source: Adam Schefter)
[11:10 AM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly cutting Anthony Harris. There’s a surprise. He was pretty invisible this summer but he was the one leading the pregame huddles and he has a relationship with Jonathan Gannon and such. As a vested vet, maybe they plan to bring him back after opening up some roster spots by putting players on IR? OR MAYBE NOT BECAUSE THE EAGLES JUST TRADED FOR CHAUNCEY GARDNER-JOHNSON WHILE I WAS WRITING THIS?! Roster still at 70 players with Harris out and CGJ in.
[10:58 AM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Mario Goodrich. The UDFA cornerback will likely return on the practice squad. Roster unofficially down to 70 players. (Source: Ian Rapoport)
[10:27 AM ET] - The Eagles are reportedly waiving Reid Sinnett. He played his way out of the QB3 job. Crashed and burned after a good start to training camp. They might bring him back on the practice squad. Roster unofficially down to 71 players. (Source: Tom Pelissero)
[9:42 AM ET] - The trade market for Jalen Reagor is said to be “heating up.” There’s belief that the Eagles will ship out their 2020 first-round pick before 4:00 PM today. Please be true. (Source: Geoff Mosher)
MONDAY, AUGUST 29
[5:17 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly released Greg Ward with an injury settlement. Ward missed a lot of practice time and the entire preseason schedule due to a toe issue. Ward had a nice little run in Philly for a long shot player who converted from college QB to NFL WR. Eagles fans will be wishing him the best. Roster unofficially down to 72 players. (Source: Chris Franklin)
[4:46 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly released Richard Rodgers. But we all know Dick Rod will be back at some point. He always is. Roster unofficially down to 73 players. (Source: Chris Franklin)
[12:50 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly waived Renell Wren. Roster unofficially down to 74 players. (Source: Adam Caplan)
[12:42 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly waived Josh Blackwell. Second time within the last week he got cut. Roster unofficially down to 75 players. (Source: Aaron Wilson)
[12:18 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly waived Jason Huntley. Guessing he’ll be back on the practice squad. Roster unofficially down to 76 players. (Source: Mike Kaye)
[12:12 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly waived Carson Strong. They seemingly had hopes for the rookie QB after giving him a lot of guaranteed money (by UDFA standards) but he really disappointed this summer. To the point where the team didn’t trust him to take practice reps or preseason snaps. Roster unofficially down to 77 players. (Source: Jonathan Jones)
[12:09 PM ET] - FORMER EAGLES NEWS: The Jaguars cut Rudy Ford and the Vikings cut T.Y. McGill.]
[12:09 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly waived Jaquiski Tartt. The veteran safety was thought to be on the roster bubble. Perhaps a good sign for Reed Blankenship making the team? Roster unofficially down to 78 players. (Source: Adam Caplan)
[12:07 PM ET] - The Eagles reportedly waived Cameron Tom. Roster unofficially down to 79 players . (Source: Aaron Wilson)
