2012 Philadelphia Eagles Preview: Predicting the Official 53-Man Roster

The Philadelphia Eagles still have a week left in training camp. There are still three more preseason games to be played. And there are over four weeks until the first game of the regular season.

So this 53-man roster roster projection is way too early, I know. We’ll see how much changes over the next four weeks.

The players are listed as ‘on’ if they made the team and ‘off’ if they missed the team. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Obviously I also have them ranked in order for the players on the team, as well as the players who did not make the team.
