The NFL preseason is officially over. Now, all teams have until Saturday at 4 PM Eastern to trim their rosters to 53 players. The Philadelphia Eagles have some extremely tough decisions to make here. While there have been some unofficial reports about players that have been cut, the Eagles themselves have not released any statements. So, here are five players that should not make the 53-man roster.

A fan and seemingly coaches’ favorite early in camp, Momah failed to distinguish himself after starting the first two preseason games. Reports have indicated he has been released, and with the receiver position extremely competitive, those reports would mean the correct decision. A spot on the practice squad is very possible.

He actually had a solid preseason and showed off his versatility. It looks like Philadelphia is trying to trade him for a low draft pick before they release him. When it is all said and done, Johnson will have played his final snap as an Eagle.

Kinne really made things tough on Matt Barkley all of training camp and preseason. However, Barkley’s performance against the Jets solidified his roster spot. Kinne should be on the practice squad.

I am definitely in the minority here. Josey clearly earned a spot on this roster for the 2014 season, however I still wouldn't put him on it. Josey has a small build, combined with questions about his pass-blocking ability. If something were to happen to LeSean McCoy, this offense is designed for any running back to thrive. With that in mind, Josey doesn't make the cut. A team will most likely claim him though.

Fans think this move is a no-brainer, as Cody Parkey made two field goals over 50 yards last night. However, the decision will be much tougher for Chip Kelly and company. I wish the team brought in a veteran to compete. Somebody more trustworthy.
