Don’t be surprised if the Philadelphia Eagles make some surprise cuts in 2020.

Wow. July sure flew by, didn’t it? If it seems like it was just yesterday when we were waiting with bated breath for the start of Philadelphia Eagles training camp, don’t be alarmed. You’ve probably got some relatives or some very close friends who feel the same way about things.

We may have popped a few firecrackers over a month ago, but until someone tells us that we’ve been sitting in some quantum realm and it’s really only been about a week that’s passed by, we’ll trust what the calendar is telling us.

The NFL season is right around the corner, and at the time of this story being published, Philly’s first game versus the Washington Football Team is one month and one week away. As if evaluating a team with all of the league’s safety protocols and mandates isn’t hard enough, Doug Pederson was going to have to do so with several coaches he had never worked with before (Marquand Manuel, Matt Burke, and Aaron Moorehead for instance). Now, thanks to his positive COVID-19 test, he won’t even be at the NovaCare Complex for a while.

Every team has its issues. We’re probably more familiar with what’s been going on in Philadelphia, but they’re still expected to put a 53-man roster together. The belief is the roster, for the most part, is set, but don’t be surprised if there are some surprise cuts. Here are three “Birds” who could be left off of the roster.
