The Best Show Ever?: Weekdays 2pm – 6pm

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - JANUARY 08: Tyree Jackson #80 of the Philadelphia Eagles reacts after catching a touchdown pass in the first quarter of the game against the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field on January 08, 2022 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

NFL Cut down day is here. For many, it is the day their dream to make an NFL roster is made. But for many others, it is the day their dream ends, or at least hits a temporary roadblock. So many players, including young guys trying to get their first shot, or veterans trying to extend their career, are getting called into the office today to have the bad news broken to them.

Some will even get extra heartbreak by making it at the deadline, only to be cut later when the Eagles claim another player off of waivers. And others may get early heartbreak, and still wind up on the 53-man roster come week 1 when the Eagles play the Patriots. Cut-down day is by no means final, but it does give us a general idea of what the roster will look like.

Teams have to go from 90, all the way down to 53. Around 37 players per team, assuming every team kept the full 90-player roster in camp. Teams are no longer required to make any cuts earlier in camp. So most of the cuts all happen on this day. But who will make it, or not make it, for the Eagles? Will there be any surprise names released?

Cut downs have already started for the Eagles, with a few surprising names among the bunch. But far more are still to come.

Keep track of all the names being released by the Eagles right here.

  • TE- Tyree Jackson

    There was a chance Tyree Jackson made it. He had a pretty nice camp again. But it was not to be. The Eagles cut Tyree, meaning it will likely be Grant Calcaterra and Jack Stoll as the backup TEs. Jackson could still land on the practice squad provided no other team claims him. But his upside could be tempting enough that some team out there may want to roll the dice with him.

  • WR Deon Cain

    Deon Cain has been around Eagles camp before and has impressed. But there was never any room for him. The Eagles are too deep at WR, and he was mostly here as a camp body, and for his sake to hopefully convince some other team to claim him.

  • QB Ian Book

    Ian Book quickly fell behind on the QB depth chart. Tanner Mckee looked very good in the preseason games, and Ian Book looked awful. Bad enough that there will likely be no team claiming him. His best hope now is to either land on the Eagles practice squad, or a practice squad somewhere else.

  • OT Dennis Kelly

    When they signed him, he seemed a lock to make the team as a swing tackle. But it became clear he was available for a reason. Kelly had been a solid backup in the past, but he looked bad in camp and in games and played his way out of a job. As a vet, he is released outright and can sign with whatever team he wants. The question is will any team want him?

  • C- Brett Toth

    Instead of keeping Toth as a backup center, it seems the Eagles’ backup center will be starting RG Cam Jurgens. Jurgens is billed as Kelce’s future replacement. And while you usually prefer to not make multiple changes on the line to fill one spot, Jurgens is better enough than any of the backup Center options, Toth included, it would be worth sliding him to center, and putting Tyler Steen at RG.

  • C- Cameron Tom

    Cameron Tom is another guy who never had much of a shot to make the roster. If they were going to keep a true backup center, it would have been Brett Toth. But the Eagles will instead just roll with Jurgens as the backup center.

  • WR Greg Ward

    Greg Ward has been around the Eagles for a long time. he gets cut, but don’t be surprised if he lands on the practice squad, and even back on the team later in the year if they need to add some depth.

  • TE Dan Arnold

    Dan Arnold was always a campbody. The only Tight end with a chance to steal one of the spots was Tyree Jackson. So it comes to no one’s surprise that Dan Arnold was released before the cut-down deadline.

  • OL- Josh Andrews

    Andrews is a 10-year vet, who started his career with Philly. But his second stint here was never to be. From the start of camp, he seemed buried on the depth chart and did not do enough to convince the Eagles to keep him as a 10th O-Lineman.

  • WR- Devon Allen

    Some thought Devon Allen may have made a case to be the return specialist in that final game. But at least for now, that is not the case. But he will likely land on the practice squad and will be there as an option should they want to give him a chance there. His speed is intriguing enough that the Eagles will hold onto him for as long as they can.

  • WR- Britain Covey

    Covey getting cut is surprising, until you remember he was cut last year too, and still ended up on the 53-man roster in week 1. In fact, they moved him down to the practice squad a lot last year, just to bring him back up before the game. it is their way of gaming the system. So even though he was cut, do not be surprised if he is back here as the punt returner in week 1. It could also be a sign they go with Trey Sermon as the return man though, We will know better at 4 pm.

  • RB- Kennedy Brooks

    There were way too many RBs on the roster for Brooks to have any shot at making the team. he will either be claimed by another team or end up on the practice squad.

  • LB Quinton Bell

    With all the names getting a shot to play at LB, the fact you never heard anything from Bell, was sign enough that he was a sure fire cut candidate.

  • DT Robert Cooper

    The Eagles are far too deep at Defensive Tackle for a guy like Robert Cooper to have even had a shot at cracking the roster.

  • WR Jadon Haselwood

    Jalen Hurts’ former teammate never had much of a chance to make it, especially in a crowded WR room.

  • LB Tyreek Maddox-Williams

    He flashed a ton in the final pre-season game. But that was never going to be enough. The Eagles probably made up most of their decisions before that game vs. the Colts was played.

  • DT Olive Sagapolu

    Olive Sagapolu is an interesting prospect. Were the eagles less deep at DT, he is a guy who could have cracked the roster. But there was never really a spot for him. So expect to see him on the practice squad, and maybe have a chance to make it next season.

  • DT Caleb Sanders

    See Robert Cooper. Too much competition at DT.

  • WR Freddie Swain

    A late addition to the Eagles camp roster, he was mostly just a camp body for the final week. He has played in the NFL before, most recently with the Seahawks, so he could be a guy who lands elsewhere on a team with less depth at WR.

  • DT Marvin Wilson

    Wilson could be a practice squad candidate if he is not claimed by another team. He spent some time on the active roster the last two seasons.

  • WR Johnny King

    When you a WR, and get the number 43, it is never a good sign of your chances to make the roster.

  • OL Tyrese Robinson

    The Eagles have too much depth at Guard for Robinson to have any chance to make it. Were he a LT, there may have been a shot for him.

  • P- Arryn Siposs

    Long time coming. Siposs has been one of the worst punters in the league the last few seasons. It is not clear who the Eagles punter will be, but cutting Siposs was the right choice.

  • DT- Noah Ellis

    Noah Ellis has been waived with an injury settlement. Ellis stuck around with the Eagles last year but saw no game action.

  • WR- Joseph Ngata

    Ngata may have had some hope that he would make it when he was among the final 5 WRs left on the roster. Turns out it wasn’t to be. He has been waived by the Eagles. If he clears waivers, he will certainly be back on the practice squad.

  • OL- Julian Good-Jones

    There just was no room for Julian Good-Jones on the inside, despite a solid camp. But he is an ideal practice squad candidate. His ability to play both guard and center will be valuable to the Eagles in the future once Kelce retires, and Cam Jurgens moves over to Center.

  • Josiah Scott

    No surprise here. Scott had a chance to prove himself last year when he filled in for Avonte Maddox and did not play well. With so much young talent in the Eagles CB room, it would be hard to justify giving Scott a 2nd chance.

  • TE Brady Russell

    Brady Russel had a good camp, there just was no room for another blocking specialist on the team with Jack Stoll already here. Expect him back on the practice squad.

  • DE- Tarron Jackson

    There was way too much depth at edge rusher for Tarron Jackson to have a shot. Especially with him having a quiet camp. He could be a practice squad guy though.

  • RB- Trey Sermon

    The Eagles would have liked to keep Trey Sermon. But it is hard to justify keeping 5 RBS. Many hoped they would keep him as a return man, but it wasn’t to be. He very well might be someone who is picked up by another team, but the Eagles would love to have him on the practice squad if no one signs him.

  • LB- Nicholas Morrow

    He was the starter coming into camp. But Christain Elliss passed him, and then they signed Zach Cunningham who quickly passed him as well. Now he is not even on the team. because of the questions at LB, some thought the Eagles may keep him for security. But that was not the case. He gets waived.

  • S- K'Von Wallace

    This one is a bit surprising. Well at the start of camp, it would not have been. But then he played pretty well, and some thought he might have earned a starting role. But apparently not. Wallace gets waived, making the way for Justin Evans to make the roster, and maybe be the starter in week 1. It could also mean Sydney Brown will start week 1, which is what will make fans most happy.

  • LB- Kyron Johnson

    There was some thought Johnson would stick for what he offers on the practice squad. Especially with all the injuries to other special teamers in camp. Nope. He gets waived and could likely return on the practice squad.

  • OL- Josh Sills

    Sills stayed on the roster all through a criminal trial, only to get cut when he could finally play because of how bad he looked. That brings them down to 9 O-Lineman on the roster and leaves the Eagles with less depth than they would usually like. There could be an OL waiver claim in the future.

  • CB- Mekhi Garner

  • LB- Ben VanSumeran
