The good news is that some of the big preseason and Training camp standouts return. Josh Adams, De’Vante Bausby and Winston Craig join the likes of Billy Brown and prized UDFA Joe Ostman on this year’s squad. This was always going to be a concern for the Eagles, given that their waiver position meant that 31 other teams had a chance to claim the players released before the building of the practice squad.
The Eagles were able to put together a strong core of players who have experience with this team and have all flashed at some point during their time with the team. There for development purposes, the practice squad is a perfect breeding ground for talent and it’s nice to see some names like Greg Ward Jr. returning for another season to learn under the Eagles coaches.
The team also announced that they’d waived Joe Walker, corresponding to this move reported earlier today.
