Matt Pryor simply isn’t ready to start for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Every so often, even the smallest sample size can be evidence that an NFL prospect is worth investing some more time into. Just take Jordan Mailata and Travis Fulgham for instance. Regardless of who gets healthy and who this team brings in, they’ve proven their worth. Mailata is a nice companion piece for Andre Dillard. Fulgham is just as worthy of the Eagles’ confidence as Jalen Reagor or Greg Ward.

Matt Pryor is another story. In camp, regardless of where he lined up, he was abused and taken advantage of. Just about every day, he made Josh Sweat look like Reggie White. He’s looked slightly better during the regular season, but he’s still tended to be taken advantage of. It was also his false start penalty that robbed Jake Elliott of a chance to attempt a game-winning 59-yard field goal versus the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.

Based on what we’ve learned over the past few weeks, maybe things worked out as they should. Elliott probably would have missed that field goal. That means Cincy would have been set up at midfield, and Philly’s defense would have been taken advantage of. Then, the tie that has been paying dividends all season is probably another loss on the Eagles ledger.

Oh well. We’ll never know now, but here’s what we do know. If Brandon Brooks, Isaac Seumalo, and Jack Driscoll are all available, there’s no need to keep Pryor around.
