The Philadelphia Eagles must carry four quarterbacks during the preseason, but we know who the first man out is.
Here’s something very important to keep an eye on. Each team must carry four quarterbacks, so for the moment, Kyle Lauletta is safe, but if the writing wasn’t on the wall for Kyle Lauletta before the Eagles decided to draft Jalen Hurts, it’s clear that it’s there now. Anything that we see from him is an audition for another team. Nothing more and nothing less. Now, onto the guys who are in danger.
The eagles seem to be set on the idea of going into the season with Corey Clement, Boston Scott, and Miles Sanders. They added Elijah Holyfield last season to give him the jump on the 2020 campaign. That means that not only Michael Warren but also Adrian Killins Jr. are in danger.
In a world where the Eagles employ a guy they drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft (and are expecting him to start at left tackle), a constant Pro Bowl nod in Lane Johnson, and a former rugby standout they just refuse to give up on, it seems the drafting of both of Auburn’s starting tackles in the most recent draft is a sign Casey Tucker has no shot to make this team.
Seeing as how Noah Togiai doesn’t have a jersey number yet and is probably the fifth tight end on a team that has two of the league’s top ten, knowing that Philly will only carry three into the regular season if that (last year, they began the season with two), the chances of Togaiai leapfrogging both Alex Ellis and Josh Perkins are slim to none.
Philly has DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Marquise Goodwin, Jalen Reagor, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, and Greg Ward on the roster. They have John Hightower and Quez Watkins waiting in the wings and guys like Deontay Burnett hoping to make a name for themselves. Manassr=eh Bailey’s chances as an undrafted guy are minimal if that.
