Yes, Philadelphia Eagles fans, he’s officially back. You can breathe.

Well, maybe a lesson lies in this for all of us, but if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, don’t beat yourself up too badly. After an emotional weekend that saw the introduction of Philly’s first 53-man roster and their 16 man practice squad, ‘Birds’ fans are spending their Monday morning on Labor day doing some breathing exercises.

Why? It’s simple actually. There hasn’t even been a game yet, and 2020’s Eagles have already been an emotional roller coaster.

Let’s get you caught up if you love these Philadelphia Eagles.

Cutting Joe Ostman was one thing. Many ‘Birds’ enthusiasts were of the impression that he deserved a spot on the roster, but cutting Cre’Von LeBlanc was something else entirely. That one sent shockwaves through the fan base, but while we were all in the midst of chaos, we began to hear rumblings. The Eagles had, indeed, cut the man they call ‘Strap’. The reason? Being that LeBlanc was a vested veteran, he wasn’t free to sign with another team immediately, and his release allowed them the space necessary to add the newly-acquired Jason Huntley.

You know the rule though, or maybe you don’t. Either way, here it is. You never report something until it’s official, so here we are. A little over 18 hours after the Eagles’ announced their decision to release LeBlanc, they’ve made another announcement. They’re bringing him back.

The lesson in all of this is don’t panic before you’re certain that there is a reason. Then again, after watching the Eagles leave Joe Ostman off of the 53-man roster and cut two cornerbacks that they just drafted a little over three years ago, why wouldn’t you believe that releasing ‘Strap’ was yet another in a long line of roster moves that were made in error?

If you were among the ‘Birds’ fans that flipped your wig on social media, don’t beat yourself up too bad, but here’s something else to consider. Don’t get married to this current roster or buy any jerseys yet. There still may be some moves made prior to Sunday. As of right now, Philly still has one available spot on the practice squad and one more on the active 53-man roster.
