The Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver corps looks a little slimmer now.
What a difference a day makes. When June 9th kicked off, Philadelphia Eagles fans were still, in the back of their minds, thinking about the potential of one Trevon Grimes and how he was someone who didn’t hear his name called for seven rounds of the most recent NFL Draft but, at the same time, talented enough to make their favorite team’s roster and, dare we say, push for significant playing time?
He’s gone now. Yep! That’s how quickly things change in the National Football League.
By the time we got to 4 p.m. EST, quitting time for a lot of the East Coast’s workforce, Grimes had been waived for medical reasons, and with him, went quarterback Jamie Newman and converted wide receiver Khalil Tate, who played quarterback at Nick Foles’ alma mater, Arizona.
And, then there were nine. If Philly doesn’t make any changes to their wide receiver room, which is probably unlikely, they will walk into training camp with nine pass-catchers on the roster. At the time of this story being published, again one day after Newman’s, Tate’s, and Grimes’s release, here’s who will be vying for potentially six spots on the roster.
