The dominos are beginning to fall in Philadelphia. With a dire need at wide receiver, the Eagles have waived Safety Andrew Sendejo.
The 29-year old Safety was signed as a free agent during the offseason but has endured a bumpy ride so far. He played in 52.9% of defensive snaps through the opening four weeks, but that number has dipped significantly in recent weeks.
Sendejo’s erratic style of play has quite literally been ‘hit-or-miss’ for the Eagles this year and although he’s made some impressive plays, his reckless tackling has cost the defense at times.
He ends his campaign in Philly with 1, sack, 1 INT, and 28 tackles.
The wildcard in all of this is that the Eagles will be able to reclaim a 4th-round compensatory pick in next year’s NFL Draft.
Does this mean another move is on the horizon? More than likely. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews worked out for the team today and there’s a strong chance the Eagles sign their old flame in wake of an emergency.
As for the Safety position, the Eagles have been getting a lot of value out of Rudy Ford and with Avonte Maddox coming back, they may well have felt comfortable moving their young defensive back into a Safety role once again.
