Roster building in the NFL is always a fluid situation, and after weeks of practice and months of speculation, Philadelphia released its official 53-man roster for the 2022 NFL regular season.
Philadelphia claimed quarterback Ian Book off waivers from the Saints, and the former Notre Dame quarterback would be the third signal-caller on the roster.
With preparation for the Lions set to begin, we’re analyzing the current 53-man roster.
Philadelphia was unimpressed with Carson Strong and Reid Sinnett, waiving both young passers before signing Sinnett to the practice squad for further development. The Eagles added former Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book to the roster, and he’s a dual-threat passer with accuracy and extensive game experience.
Philadelphia initially decided to roll with their normal three-headed monster of Sanders, Scott, and Gainwell.
Jason Huntley was solid during the preseason, but he’s a similar back and was released before signing to the Steelers practice squad.
The Eagles then added hard-running former Ohio State tailback Trey Sermon who’ll fill the role previously held by Jordan Howard.
Jalen Reagor (Trade)
Philadelphia kept their big four on the roster with A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Zach Pascal.
The Eagles then traded Jalen Reagor to the Vikings for two late-round draft picks and then signed Devon Allen, Britain Covey, and Deon Cain back to the practice squad.
Philadelphia is rolling with three tight ends, including rookie Grant Calcaterra and second-year player Jack Stoll.
Philadelphia has the best and deepest offensive line in football, and made four tough cuts, before bringing back Kayode Awosika, Le’Raven Clark, and Cameron Tom on the practice squad.
The Eagles rewarded Marlon Tuipuluto for his improvement during the offseason, and Philadelphia has three pass rushing SAM linebackers as well.
Once a liability, Philadelphia’s linebacker corps is the among the most athletic in the league.
Kary Vincent Jr.
Philadelphia is rolling with six cornerbacks, including rookie Josh Jobe.
Howie Roseman saw enough after the preseason finale, cutting Anthony Harris, Jaquiski Tartt, and Andre Chachere.
Philadelphia’s GM then traded for versatile cover guy, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.
