Several Philadelphia Eagles’ NFL dreams may be headed towards a dead end.
Once August rolls around every NFL season, the one thing that we all can count on is this. Philadelphia Eagles fans and fans of all of the other 31 teams are on social media, in the break room at work, or contacting each other via some form of video messaging to argue about who’s making the final 53-man roster.
For some, the road ends simply because there are other prospects who play the same position that are better. For others, they fall victim to the numbers game due to gridlock at other positions. For others still, there simply won’t be enough opportunities to flash for their respective position coaches.
Heading into 2020’s version of training camp, all of those factors are coming into play. There’s minimal grass time. The head coach, Doug Pederson, is in quarantine and away from the NovaCare Complex. There won’t be any preseason games.
During a recent chat with several members of the Philly media, Coach Pederson stated that this season creates a better opportunity for the guys at the end of the roster to be successful. Even with his explanation for saying that, it’s hard to imagine that statement proving itself to be accurate.
At the time of this story being published, we’re coming up on a month before the start of the regular season. Some things are coming into focus, and whether we want to admit this or not, several Philadelphia Eagles’ NFL dreams may be headed towards a dead end. Here are five guys that may be included among the “Birds” whose time might be winding down (in no particular order).
