Although he never appeared in a regular-season game in 2017, Davis spent the preseason with the Eagles and took reps at receiver while also getting a look as the return man on both punts and kickoffs. He'll now get another chance to make the team ahead of the 2018 campaign.
The fourth-round pick from the 2017 draft already seemed poised to challenge Smith for his role in the coming season, but that road has become much smoother with this news. Hollins will still be behind Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor on the depth chart, but given the volume in the Eagles' offense, the 24-year-old could be a big-time breakout candidate in 2018.
Nelson serves as a reserve linebacker behind Brandon Marshall so it isn't likely he sees the field too much on Sunday, but his active status is a reassuring sign for the team.
Treggs, who appeared in nine games for the Eagles in 2016, ended the season on Philadelphia's practice squad after getting let go by the Browns in December. The slot receiver is off the fantasy radar at present but that could change if he somehow manages to climb the depth chart this offseason.
A 2015 first-round selection, Agholor disappointed in his first two seasons as a pro, compiling 59 catches for 648 yards (11.0 per) and three touchdowns. During the Eagles' run to the Super Bowl, though, he surpassed all of those totals with a 62-768-8 line on 95 targets, good for 8.1 YPT. Agholor may take on even more of the receiving burden in the upcoming campaign if Alshon Jeffery kicks it off at less than full strength following shoulder surgery in February. However, Agholor still must compete for looks with tight end Zach Ertz, free-agent pickup Mike Wallace and a cadre of running backs, so his production may remain stable from last season to this one.
Vaitai is expected to return to his role as Lane Johnson's backup at right tackle Sunday versus the Redskins.
Hart played with the Eagles for parts of the 2017 season before the team let him go in mid-November. Whether he makes the 53-man roster next fall will likely depend on his progress throughout training camp. Hart still has a long way to go before making a great impact on the gridiron for the Birds.
Despite the Bears' dearth of talent at receiver last season, Wheaton couldn't carve out much of a role in the passing game while also battling health issues. Wheaton finished his lone campaign in Chicago with just three receptions for 51 yards in 11 games before receiving his walking papers in March. It's no surprise that Wheaton was forced to settle for a one-year, prove-it deal in free agency, and there's no guarantee he'll earn a roster spot with the Super Bowl champions given his issues with staying on the field and his underwhelming production in 2017. Even if Wheaton is able to clinch a roster berth, he'll likely only serve as a depth wideout for the team and wouldn't be in line for consistent targets.
Jones struggled to find a role with the Colts last season behind the likes of Frank Gore and Marlon Mack, suiting up for just five games, often being a healthy scratch or a practice squad player. He finished the season with only five carries for 14 yards. The Eagles quickly picked up him after the Colts released him May 1, though it seems like he'll be a long shot to make the 53-man roster.
The Eagles reportedly offered Long, who is currently under contract through 2018, a one-year extension that would bump his salary from $1 million in base pay to $4 million guaranteed The soon-to-be 33-year-old has yet to accept or decline the offer and presumably won't take action on that front until he determines his future in the sport. Long was serviceable in a rotational role at defensive end last season, notching 20 tackles and five sacks across 495 defensive snaps.
Gerry, a fifth-round pick of the Eagles back in April who landed on the practice squad after being waived at final roster cuts during training camp, will take the 53-man roster spot of Chris Maragos (knee), who was placed on injured reserve. A safety in college, Gerry converted to linebacker in camp and will continue to practice at that position upon joining the roster. However, if Gerry suits up on game days, it's likely that he'll see most of his snaps on special teams rather than defense.
Bouka has been hampered by a string of injuries to start his career. Perhaps the 25-year-old became a bit more expendable after Philadelphia selected cornerback Avonte Maddox in the fourth round of this April's draft. Should he clear waivers, Bouka will be placed on injured reserve.
Grugier-Hill has played only 85 defensive snaps for the Eagles this season, serving primarily as a special teams player. The 23-year-old should serve a similar role with Philadephia in 2018, assuming he again makes the team's 53-man roster.
Jenkins played all 16 games for the fourth consecutive year. Perhaps this longevity helped get him elected to his second Pro Bowl because, statistically speaking, he virtually repeated his 2016 season. The only major difference was his failure to score a defensive touchdown, marking just the second of eight pro seasons in which he has failed to find the end zone. He is now on the wrong side of 30 and has limited upside in IDP leagues.
Foles' second stint with the Eagles was expected to end after the 2018 season, but the adjusted deal has a mutual option for the 2019 campaign, allowing him to dabble in free agency next offseason or return to Philly. Along with additional flexibility, he received a $2 million signing bonus and has the potential to earn several more millions in incentives in 2018 if he starts and reaches certain benchmarks. In the end, Foles' upcoming earnings are tied to Carson Wentz's recovery from a torn ACL, which he suffered Dec. 10. With knowledge of the typical rehab from such an injury, Foles is a good bet to be under center for a number of games, but Wentz relayed his goal Tuesday of a return by Week 1.
The Eagles don't take the field until Tuesday, but Bennett's presence at the facility is significant nonetheless since the defensive end didn't attend voluntary OTAs this spring. While it's possible his legal situation could prevent him from taking the field in Week 1, Bennett presumably will still be entering training camp with the first-string defense.
Wilson didn't suit up for a game in the 2017 campaign, partially because he battled a hip injury late into preseason. Through his five seasons in the NFL, Wilson has 56 receptions on 99 targets for 764 yards and three touchdowns. The Eagles currently have a talented receiving corps, so Wilson will likely be a depth asset if he makes the 53-man roster in 2018.
Fellow key cog, right tackle Lane Johnson, also restructured his deal with Philadelphia, with the resulting cap space giving the team added flexibility in free agency. Ertz is coming off a 2017 campaign in which he caught 74 passes for 824 yards and a career-high eight TDs in 14 games. He remains atop the Eagles' tight end depth chart, but who backs him up remains to be seen, with Trey Burton now with the Bears and Brent Celek having been released. In any case, Ertz will remain the team's top pass-catching option at the position, a context that will result in the 27-year-old retaining his status as a quality fantasy option.
Darby added five solo tackles and three passes defended to go along with his second interception of the season. The pick came midway through the second quarter. He returned it 37 yards before being taken down 20 yards short of the end zone. The 23-year-old participated in 84 defensive snaps (95.0 percent).
Sproles has been the Eagles' primary punt returner since joining the team ahead of the 2014 campaign, but has only sparingly been used for kickoffs. However, with the new rules put in place for kickoff returns, the Eagles feel as if Sproles could also make a difference on that special team's unit, so it's something they'll experiment with later this summer and into the fall. Sproles also still needs to get back to full strength, as he sat out voluntary OTAs while still working through his rehab from a fractured right arm and a torn left ACL.
Jones is expected to be among the contenders for a starting spot in the Eagles defensive 11 this season, but his absence from offseason workouts due to injury doesn't do him any favors in that regard. Given that he has more than a month before training camp opens, there's a decent chance he will be healthy enough to practice at that point.
Wallace's former squad, the Ravens, have effectively exchanged him and Jeremy Maclin for Michael Crabtree and John Brown. Meanwhile, Wallace should slot into the role of the jettisoned Torrey Smith in the upcoming campaign. In his sole season in Philly, the 28-year-old Smith gathered in 36 of 68 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games. Wallace himself is only two years removed from a 1,000-yard season, so it's not a stretch to say the Eagles upgraded their receiving corps with this transaction. Having said that, he'll have to contend with Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz for downfield targets, which could cap Wallace's weekly contributions.
The timeline suggests Jernigan will likely be on the sideline for most of training camp and is in serious danger of missing the start of the season, a less-than-ideal development for the 25-year-old as he begins the first year of a four-year, $48 million contract. According to Yates, Jernigan agreed to restructure his contract after it was determined he would need back surgery, with the final three years of his deal no longer containing any guaranteed money. Perhaps in recognition of Jernigan's back concern and in anticipation of a potential absence, the Eagles signed veteran run stuffer Haloti Ngata (biceps) in March to fortify their defensive-line depth.
Braman has been a key special teams asset for Philadelphia over the last several years but will now look to expand that role in New Orleans. It's unlikely that he'll have any major impact on the defensive unit, but Braman will have the chance to earn his keep with special teams.
Callahan has spent the bulk of his professional career on practice squads, but was able to get on the field for his NFL debut with Green Bay in 2017, completing five of seven passes for 11 yards against the Lions in Week 17. He was ultimately cut by the Packers at the end of April and will now head to Philadelphia, where he could battle for the No. 3 job behind Carson Wentz (knee) and Nick Foles.
Reynolds has served primarily as a special teams contributor during his career, though he did log 138 defensive snaps with the Falcons in 2016. Still, the 27-year-old linebacker will likely only secure a spot if he can prove a worthy contributor on special teams again.
Graham indicated Thursday that he will be off crutches next week and believe he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from the procedure. A better grasp on his timeline will likely surface as the preseason progresses, but his status for the beginning of the regular season appears hazy at this point.
The left guard was only forced to miss a handful of plays with the injury and was scheduled to be evaluated last week. It's unclear what the prognosis is for Wisniewski heading into the upcoming season, but unless major surgery was necessary, he should be back to full strength for the start of training camp.
Jeffery's recovery timetable was estimated at six months after he had surgery Feb. 21 to repair a full tear of his right rotator cuff. The Eagles tentatively expect their top wideout to be ready for Week 1, though the timeline puts his availability for training camp in doubt. Should he end up missing games, Jeffery's usual allotment of snaps likely would go to some combination of Mack Hollins, Shelton Gibson and Markus Wheaton, all of whom will compete for roles in the coming months. Such a scenario would portend increased target volume for Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor, the team leaders in receptions last season.
Perkins spent the 2017 season on the Falcons' practice squad injured list with an undisclosed injury. The Eagles are currently stacked at tight end, but Trey Burton's contract expires after this season, which could open up a depth spot for Perkins.
Bausby's time as a member of the Eagles' practice squad officially came to an end Monday, so Philadelphia opted to keep him in the organization at least through its offseason program by inking him to a contract. The cornerback, whose lone four appearances in the NFL came with the Bears in 2016, faces long odds to win a roster spot with the Eagles coming out of training camp.
The 2017 sixth-round pick was projected to be picked earlier, but he put on extra weight and seems to lack the consistency needed to be a starter in the league. Although Qualls is cleared to play Sunday, he's not expected to see much time
Brooks has quickly established himself as one of the top interior linemen across the league for his on-field production. However, it now appears he's helping the Eagles outside of the trenches as well. By restructuring his current deal, Brooks has allowed the Eagles to convert some of $8.75 million base salary into bonuses which will subsequently free up some cap space for Philadelphia.
The size of the contract suggests Rodgers will need to earn his roster spot, though the guaranteed money hints the Eagles expect him to do so. The team may view him as a low-cost replacement for Trey Burton, who caught 23 of 30 targets for 248 yards and five scores in 15 games last season, with nearly half of his yardage and three of the five touchdowns occurring in the two contests Zach Ertz missed due to injury. A 2014 third-round pick, Rodgers caught 58 of 85 targets for 510 yards and eight touchdowns in 2015, but he's otherwise failed to reach 300 yards in a season, typically operating in a reserve role. He has underwhelming career marks of 9.7 yards per catch and 6.4 yards per target, despite getting most of his opportunities from the arm of Aaron Rodgers.
Ngata, who hasn't played a full 16-game slate since 2011, lasted just five games into the 2017 season before being placed on injured reserve. Since the sort of injury he's dealing with is typically accompanied by a four-to-six month recovery, Ngata should be closing in on a full recovery in the near future. While the veteran defensive tackle seems likely to miss the Eagles' voluntary workouts this month, there's optimism he'll be a full go in time for mandatory workouts in June.
The 2017 fifth-round pick will have the inactive tag for the second time in as many weeks to open the season. Gibson has a ways to go to shed the label, as he currently sits sixth on the Eagles' wide receiver depth chart.
Barnett missed two of the Eagles' last four games of the 2017 season due to the injury that prompted the offseason surgery. However, this procedure will reportedly make Barnett's groin area stronger than it was previously, which certainly bodes well for his ability to stay healthy this upcoming season. With Brandon Graham (ankle) and Michael Bennett locked in to the starting lineup, Barnett is expected to serve in a rotational role in 2018.
Johnson will now make $4.98 million next season, as opposed to the $12.48 million he was scheduled to make. The Eagles were expected to be $9.8 over the salary cap before the move, so the restructured deal will go a long way in helping out the Eagles.
The rookie started the scoring with a 26-yard boot midway through the first quarter and followed it with the missed extra point. From there, he was perfect, putting Philadelphia up by more than a field goal with his 42- and 46-yard attempts in the fourth quarter. The Super Bowl win completes a whirlwind season for the 23-year-old, who, after going undrafted and failing to make the Bengals out of training camp, signed with the Eagles after the injury to Caleb Sturgis in Week 1. The Memphis product completed 26 of 31 field-goal attempts during the regular season and was a perfect 7-for-7 in the playoffs. He is signed through next season.
Killings ended up on injured reserve with an unspecified injury and is now free to sign elsewhere, but is most likely a practice-squad candidate.
Ward played quarterback in college but didn't possess the tools required to stick at the position in the NFL. As a result, he transitioned to wide receiver as he attempted to secure a 53-man roster spot. While that ultimately fell by the wayside as a rookie, Ward stuck around as a practice squad member and apparently impressed the Eagles enough to warrant a reserve/future contract this offseason. He would need a big training camp showing to earn a roster spot over some of the more established options or draft picks this season, but since it appears he's avoided a major injury, a spot on the practice squad again may not be out of the question.
After signing with the Eagles back in April, Worrilow suffered a torn ACL during OTAs, ending his season before it could get started. The linebacker was coming off a season with the Lions in which he registered 30 tackles, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery in 13 games (eight starts).
Lovato has big shoes to fill, as he takes over for the Eagles' longest-tenured player. An injury to the veteran long snapper in the latter portion of the 2016 season opened up the opportunity for Lovato, an undrafted free agent in 2015. The Old Dominion product was working for his father's sub shop when he got the call to work out for the Eagles. He will now look to make his fourth NFL stop stick.
It was Mills' highest tackle total since Week 3 of the regular season against the Giants. While his per-game numbers were inconsistent after that, the former seventh-round pick managed to rack up 64 total tackles (51 solo), two more than his rookie season, and also defended 14 passes, doubling his 2016 total. He added three interceptions and a touchdown. The 23-year-old will presumably return to a starting role in 2018 and look to continue becoming more of a playmaker.
Wentz's presence on the field in any capacity less than six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee was already viewed as a major win for the Eagles, but the fact that the quarterback has now graduated from individual drills to team work indicates he's progressing at a truly remarkable pace. While Wentz still has multiple checkpoints in his recovery to clear before he's given a clean bill of health, it appears that any fears the signal-caller might not be ready for Week 1 have substantially diminished over the past several weeks. Despite Wentz's seemingly setback-free rehab, there's no indication the Eagles intend to gauge other teams' interest in acquiring Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, who will presumably remain a high-quality insurance option behind Wentz entering the upcoming campaign.
Brown spent the 2017 season on the Eagles' practice squad. If he's able to put together a solid training camp and garner a roster spot, the rookie's most likely role in 2018 would be as a special teams contributor and reserve tight end.
Hicks has made steady progress in his recovery from a ruptured Achilles this offseason. He should be operating at full capacity in time for training camp.
Beatty most recently played six games with the Giants in 2016, which came after he missed the entire 2015 season with a torn pectoral muscle. The veteran will help add depth to an offensive line that will be without its top tackle, Jason Peters (knee), for the rest of the season.
Selected in the fourth round last year, Pumphrey struggled throughout training camp and the preseason, then landed on injured reserve with a torn hamstring in mid-September. He's back at full strength for the Eagles' offseason program, where Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement find themselves atop the depth chart in the backfield. Pumphrey's odds of making the 53-man roster looked better before Philadelphia re-signed Darren Sproles last week, though it remains to be seen how the 34-year-old recovers from the torn ACL and broken arm he suffered last season. The Eagles might ultimately decide that the time is now for Pumphrey to replace Sproles as their undersized pass-catching back. If not, Pumphrey will need to battle for his roster life.
With fellow tight end Trey Burton slated to sign with the Bears, the Eagles will need to add depth at the position, but Zach Ertz, who caught 74 passes in 14 games in 2017, does at least remain with the Super Bowl champs. Celek caught just 13 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown this past season, but the 33-year-old figures to catch on elsewhere, where his blocking prowess could remain an asset.
The Eagles, who have locked up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, have little to play for in Week 17 other than staying sharp heading into the postseason. With that in mind, head coach Doug Pederson wants starting quarterback Nick Foles, who has started the last two games after Carson Wentz (knee) suffered a season-ending injury, to play about one quarter before Sudfeld enters the game. The lack of a full four quarters -- in addition to his inexperience at the NFL level -- renders Sudfeld little more than a fantasy dart.
After a breakout 2016 campaign with the Dolphins, Ajayi failed to live up to expectations last season for those that invested an early round pick in the running back in fantasy drafts. Ajayi averaged just 3.4 yards per carry and scored no touchdowns in seven games with Miami before being dealt to Philadelphia on Oct. 31. While he saw more limited snap counts with the Eagles as part of a backfield committee with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement, Ajayi displayed the big-play ability that made him an attractive commodity entering the year, cranking out 5.8 yards per carry on 70 totes in his final seven regular-season contests. With a full offseason to familiarize himself with the Eagles' offensive schemes and Blount likely headed elsewhere in free agency, Ajayi seems primed for a larger workload in 2018, though the 24-year-old's chronic knee issues may make head coach Doug Pederson reluctant to use Ajayi as the true three-down back many envisioned he would become.
Walker missed the last two games with the neck injury but appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Giants. The 25-year-old should return to the role of starting middle linebacker for the Eagles.
Graham was a full participant in practice this week, so the expectation is that the safety will be active and ready to go for Sunday's contest. With Rodney McLeod (hamstring) expected to play this week as well, Graham will likely serve as a backup in the secondary.
Tasked with playing on the outside in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme last season, Bradham moved to the middle following Jordan Hicks' season-ending Achilles injury in October and was instrumental in aiding the Eagles to their first Super Bowl title. Bradham, who finished the past campaign with 88 tackles, eight pass breakups, one forced fumble and a sack in 15 regular-season contests, will be rewarded handsomely for his efforts, but the large financial commitment could force the Eagles to cut costs at the position by releasing fellow outside linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who carries a $7.6 million cap hit for 2018. With Hicks expected back at full strength for training camp, Bradham should move back to the strong side during the upcoming season and could see his tackle total decline as a result.
Cox was a full participant in practice all week, so it's not all too surprising he'll be out on the field Thursday night. Since the veteran is returning from a two-game absence, the Eagles may look to limit his snap count. If that is the case, look for Beau Allen and Justin Hamilton to see expanded reps.
Despite being 36 years old with a torn ACL and MCL, Peters was penciled in as the starting left tackle back in February by coach Doug Pederson. There's no reason to rush the veteran into team drills, and it's a good sign that he's getting reps early in the offseason program.
Vaeao missed five early-season games with a wrist injury and otherwise served as a reserve defensive tackle. The 24-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie contract and could be due for a slightly increased role in 2018 with fellow reserve defensive tackle Beau Allen slated to hit free agency.
That may be so, but it doesn't change the fact Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement -- in that order -- are positioned atop the depth chart. Smallwood had 22 carries and five receptions between Weeks 3 and 4 last season, but he then missed two games with a knee injury, and eventually became a healthy scratch behind Ajayi, Clement, LeGarrette Blount and Kenjon Barber. The Eagles lost Blount and haven't re-signed Barber, but they do have interest in bringing back Darren Sproles (knee, arm). Smallwood may end up competing for a roster spot in training camp, even if Pederson believes he's a solid player.
Kelce sat out Wednesday's session with a knee injury, but his full participation Thursday indicates that he is trending towards playing in Week 4's matchup against the Chargers.
Maragos, who originally injured his right knee Oct. 12 against the Panthers, is recovering from a torn PCL. Barring an unexpectedly quick return, it sounds like he could be a candidate to open the 2018 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would prevent him from playing in the first six games.
The tackle total was a career-low for the five year veteran, and it being the first time he failed to play all 16 games in a season doesn't fully explain the fall-off in production. The 27-year-old came on strong to finish the year at least, as he logged six or more tackles in four of his five final games (including the playoffs) after having made more than four tackles only once in the season's first 14 weeks. He will be back with the Eagles in 2018 and will remain a low-end IDP option.
Returning starter Jalen Mills and offseason acquisition Patrick Robinson started in the base package, with Mills moving inside in the nickel and Douglas replacing him outside. The rookie apparently acquitted himself well, and if he continues to do so, he could easily move into the starting lineup if Robinson continues his injury-prone ways or underwhelms as he has up to now. Douglas could also face competition from Ron Brooks (quad) and 2017 second-round pick Sidney Jones (Achilles) once they recover from their injuries, however.
Clement caught on with the Eagles as an undrafted rookie last year and ended up with a surprising role as the team's third-down back late in the season, highlighted by four catches for 100 yards and a score in the Super Bowl. He only caught 29 passes in 39 college games while playing at around 225-230 pounds, but he developed a new skill set after losing 10-15 pounds last offseason. While he may cede the third-down role to Darren Sproles (knee, arm), the 23-year-old has a strong case to handle some of LeGarrette Blount's vacated rushing workload, after taking 74 carries for 321 yards (4.3 YPC) and four TDs as a rookie. Jay Ajayi is a superior athlete and thus figures to fill the lead role, but he has a history of issues with his right knee and hasn't done much as a pass catcher in the NFL. Between the concerns surrounding Ajayi and those surrounding Sproles' rehab and age (35), it won't be at all surprising if Clement sees a large increase from last year's regular-season total of 84 touches.
