The Philadelphia Eagles waived 12 players on Thursday and placed Andre Dillard on injured reserve, officially ending his season. With the roster now sitting at 67 players, here are six players in danger of not making the 53 man roster.
1. Sidney Jones
Jones should make the roster by default but he’s been outplayed by Craig James and he lost his position battle with Avonte Maddox. Cornerbacks are hard to find, but Jones could be the odd man out over the next few days.
2. Genard Avery
Avery’s potential as a pass rusher just hasn’t presented itself and the injured defensive end could be running out of time to prove he was worth the late-round pick.
3. Rudy Ford
Ford is a special team’s standout and that would normally ensure a roster spot but with Will Parks out multiple weeks with a lower-body injury. With Marcus Epps having a solid camp, Ford will likely be the odd man out.
Singleton has had success this camp at the third linebacker spot and if the Eagles choose to carry six linebackers, he should land the spot.
