Eagles Annouce 53-Man Roster
The Eagles on Tuesday waived several players as all NFL teams were required to have their rosters down to 53.
Earlier in the day, they acquired safety/hybrid defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson in a trade with the Saints and released veteran safety Anthony Harris.
Also waived or waived/injured were wide receivers Deon Cain, John Hightower, Britain Covey, Devon Allen and Gred Ward (injured reserve), running back Kennedy Brooks, safety Andre Chachere, offensive guard Jack Anderson, defensive tackles Marvin Wilson, Renell Wren, and Kobe Smith (waived injured), offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark, offensive guard Kayode Awosika, cornerbacks Mac McCain, Tay Gowan, Kary Vincent, Josh Blackwell and Mario Goodrich, running back Jason Huntley, defensive end Matt Leo, linebackers Christian Elliss and Jacoby Stevens, tight end Richard Rodgers, quarterbacks Carson Strong and Reid Sinnett, tight end Noah Togiai, and center Cameron Tom.
But the initial 53 might not be the same 53 the Eagles have Wednesday, when they start practice, or by the Sept. 11 season opener in Detroit against the Lions.
Any trades or waiver claims will change the roster going forward.
