Jordan Mailata, tackle. . player. 54. . .

Nothing’s gone right for Jordan Mailata. He looks lost at times. He looks outclassed at others. Friday’s practice session ended with a sack off of him. He threw his helmet, which resulted in a quick reprimand by head coach Doug Pederson.

It’s hard to imagine a scenario where he makes the roster.

. . . Derek Barnett, defensive end. . player. 54

Derek Barnett is in need of a great season, and the team that employs him needs a big season from him. Just a week ago, we were talking about him finally coming into camp healthy. Then, he ended up on the injury report. You can’t blame him for that, but we aren’t off to a good start here.

. . . Genard Avery, defensive end. . player. 54

Philly traded for Genard Avery at the trade deadline last season with the hopes of giving him the jumpstart on 2020’s campaign. Much was expected, but it seems like he’s been passed by just about everyone at his position. No one’s discussing this young man at all.

54. . . . Rasul Douglas, cornerback. . player

Rasul Douglas hasn’t had the worst of camps, but he hasn’t actually done enough to prove that this will be one of his best seasons. He’s made a few plays here and there, but he’s also been tested with the deep ball, and he’s been beaten.

. . . Sidney Jones, cornerback. . player. 54

For a man that needs a big season in 2020, these physical issues that Sidney Jones is experiencing sure have come at the wrong time. He missed the final two days of practice, and he didn’t look like one of the Eagles’ better players when he was playing.

That experiment of taking the injured guy and seeing if he can heal doesn’t seem to be working. Everyone wants the best for this guy. If you’re an Eagles fan, then, of course, you want to see him succeed, but we could be looking at the final 16 regular-season games for Jones in a ‘Birds’ jersey. No one would be surprised if he succeeded or failed during the upcoming campaign.
