Tuesday’s cuts

We kick off our coverage with a slew of moves that happened overnight and in the early hours of the morning. DT Raequan Williams is the most recent player to have been cut by the Birds, according to NJ.com’s Mike Kaye, but should be a firm practice squad candidate.

Around an hour earlier, Tom Pelissero noted that the Eagles waived RB Jason Huntley. Had he not suffered a rib injury, he would’ve likely displaced Jordan Howard on the 53-man roster. The best the Eagles can hope for now is a practice squad placement.

Pelissero was also the reporter to drop the news that the Eagles were waiving CB Craig James. He joins Michael Jacquet on the waiver wire. This means that it’s likely going to come down to Kevon Seymour and Josiah Scott for the final spot on the roster.

Monday’s cuts

Matt Lombardo noted that the Eagles are parting ways with WR Andre Patton. He’ll be a key name to hit the practice squad as someone that has previously worked under Nick Sirianni and has special teams upside.

Ross Pierschbacher was another name cut in the dead of the night, according to Dave Zangaro. The former Alabama center has previously snapped for Jalen Hurts and could be a fun name to watch develop under Stoutland if he hits the 16-man practice squad.

Matt Leo will revert to the practice squad but he didn’t count against the roster*
