The Philadelphia Eagles have knocked their roster down to the maximum number of 53 and answered a lot of questions. For the most part the cuts went as expected, but there were two positions where a lot was up in the air. Those two positions are running back and wide receiver. The Eagles had the luxury of having a lot of possible players to fill out their skill positions on offense this preseason. This was largely in part to the many talented rookies that they acquired along with some other new acquisitions. When the time came, the Eagles made some surprising, perhaps even shocking decisions about their roster. The question is, were the right decisions made when it comes to the eagles roster?

At running back the Eagles were reportedly trying to knock down their 53 man roster to contain four running backs. Two of these four slots were already a lock, as star Eagles running back LeSean McCoy fills the first spot and the newly acquired Eagles running back/return specialist Darren Sproles fills the second spot. That left two spots to be filled. These spots were being competed for by undrafted free agent running back Henry Josey, former Carolina Panthers running back Kenjon Barner, undrafted free agent running back Matthew Tucker and finally Philadelphia Eagles running back Chris Polk.
