The Philadelphia Eagles unveiled their initial “fluid” 53-man roster on Tuesday afternoon with plenty of surprises.

With the waiver process set to start at noon on Wednesday and teams around the league rushing to put together a formidable 16-man practice squad, here are 10-players Philadelphia should consider adding to the roster.

good cover guys are hard to find and the former Washington cornerback would be an immediate upgrade at the position.

WR Antonio Golden-Gandy

The former Liberty wide receiver was on the Eagles' radar during the 2020 NFL draft process and he'd be a solid addition. Golden-Gandy missed most of his rookie season due to injury and he could be a potential prospect to watch.

WR, Tyron Johnson

A physical wideout, who's athletic and versatile, Johnson averaged almost 20-yards per catch last season. Johnson logged 20 catches for 398 yards and three touchdowns with the Chargers last year, while only playing 265 offensive snaps. *** Update: Johnson was claimed by the Jaguars who had the top spot.

LB Benardrick McKinney

A former Pro Bowler who can thrive in multiple schemes, McKinney could thrive at the SAM spot for Jonathan Gannon.

OT Prince Tega Wanogho

One of the highest graded tackles during the preseason, Tega-Wanogho is still only 23 years old and only allowed two pressures, one quarterback hit, and two pressures in 111 offensive snaps.

WR Keke Coutee

A difficult matchup in the slot, Coutee had 33 receptions for 400 yards and three touchdowns in eight games last season.

WR Equanimeous St. Brown

An elite athlete that comes from a family of elite athletes, St. Brown can play the Z or slide down into the slot.
