The NFL roster cut window is upon us. The Philadelphia Eagles need to bring their 80-man roster down to 53 by Tuesday at 4PM EST. A lot can change in the space of 24 hours including the formation of a practice squad and some wild and whacky moves that carry plenty of shockwaves throughout the league. With the whirlwind already in full motion, here’s a handy tracker to help you stay up to date with the latest news and rumors.

Roster cuts

S Jaquiski Tartt (Per Adam Caplan) – Full analysis here

RB Jason Huntley (per Mike Kaye) – The Eagles could still be in the market for a downhill running back

QB Carson Strong (Jonathan Jones) – More like Carson Weak

C Cameron Tom (per Aaron Wilson) – The Eagles have a great backup safety in Cam Jurgens

Rennel Wren (Per Adam Caplan) – The Eagles have a lot of excess depth at DT. There won’t be much room behind the quarter of Cox, Hargrave, Williams, and Davis.

CB Josh Blackwell (Per Aaron Wilson) – The sizable DB room continues to be cut into. Expect several more names from the CB spot.

WR John Hightower – Don’t even think about tweeting me *UPDATE* He’s not cut after all…yet? Apparently? I don’t know, Twitter is a weird space. He was at practice today so he at least made it through Monday.

WR Greg Ward Jr. – Ward is being waived with an injury designation. When he eventually recovers from the lower body injury (4-5 week return time per Chris Franklin, who broke the story), Ward will search for a new NFL home. It sucks to see the Greg Ward era come to an end, but that’s the nature of this team growing so fast.

CB Mario Goodrich per Ian Rapoport. The expectations are that Goodrich will pass through waivers and end up on the Eagles practice squad.

QB Reid Sinnett per Tom Pelissero. He’s expected to be a candidate for the practice squad.


It’s worth noting that the Jaguars just released special teams ace, Rudy Ford, who was once a key cog in the Philadelphia ST unit. The timing of the two moves were nearly identical and Ian Rapoport noted that a potential trade for Ford was on the cards at one stage, but the Jags opted to release him instead. It would not be surprising to see Howie chase after the devil he knows as opposed to the devil he doesn’t.
