5 Philadelphia Eagles offensive veterans who are in danger of being cut
By Ben Swanger
Matt Pryor was a disaster for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020.
Cutting ties with offensive lineman Matt Pryor might be an easier decision than letting go of Jordan Howard. In 2020, the Eagles offensive line was in utter shambles and Pryor was one of the main culprits of poor play.
Pryor will turn 27 this upcoming season and his position along the offensive line still isn’t completely defined. Is he best on the inside or the outside? The world may never know. Pryor has played both guard and tackle, however, his performance at both positions is incredibly shaky. He has logged quality snaps, but his inconsistency has and will continue to hold him back from being one of Philly’s top reserve options along the offensive front.
With the addition of Landon Dickerson, the return of the injured veterans, and younger talent to develop like Nate Herbig and Jack Driscoll, Pryor, unless he steals someone’s talent like the Monstars in Space Jam, will be cut by Philly.
The veteran is entering his final year on a four-year contract and if Philly cuts him, the team will save just under $1 million.
Pryor’s performance in this upcoming training camp can’t get worse than his heralded performance at tackle in last year’s camp where he was beaten snap in and snap out by Derek Barnett.
Let’s hit the wide receiver room.
