Final cuts are due today by 4:00 PM, and the Philadelphia Eagles have some tough decisions to make. Here is my prediction for the team’s 53-man roster.
Foles and Sanchez had their spots solidified early on. Barkley played well in the fourth preseason game to earn his spot.
I think Chris Polk gets stashed on the PUP list to start the season, allowing Philadelphia to keep both Tucker and Barner for the time-being.
The top-FOUR are no brainers. Smith gets a spot because of his versatility combined with Benn hitting the IR. Maehl gets the final spot, with his ability to play on the outside. Having gone to Oregon doesn't hurt his chances either.
Burton is a major surprise here, as reports have indicated that he has made the team. If so, I cannot imagine they carry four tight ends, meaning James Casey days could be numbered. However, there is still a chance Casey finds his way on the roster.
Lane Johnson gets a roster exemption and will be there Week 5. Molk’s impressive camp gets him the backup center job, and Matt Tobin will be pushing Allan Barbre for his spot.
These guys need to figure out a way to pressure the quarterback in 2014.
Travis Long would have made the team, but unfortunately suffered a torn ACL. As a result, Casey Matthews sneaks back onto the roster. There is actually some decent depth here, but just like the defensive line, these OLB’s need to hurry the QB this season.
Really not many tough decisions here. No way Curtis Marsh will be playing in Eagles green this fall.
Reports have indicated that Cody Parkey has beaten out Alex Henery, and there really cannot be much of an argument made against that decision.
