As we march towards the introduction of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ 2021 training camp roster, we can be assured that there will be some debate about what it ends up looking like. What we can agree on is this.

Somewhere between their first official practice session of training camp, their three preseason games, and the first regular-season game, which is scheduled for September 12th in Atlanta versus the Falcons, the training camp roster will see more than its share of arrivals and departures.

It didn’t take long for that process to begin as the Birds began shuffling guys around almost as soon as these guys we turned began sharing notes and tweets on what was going on at the NovaCare Complex.

The Philadelphia Eagles make roster decisions on six guys.

Shortly after breakfast time on the East Coast, Philly made an official announcement, and this was it. Three prospects, including one starter, were added to the team’s COVID-19 reserve list: safety Andrew Adams, defensive end Matt Leo, and proposed starting linebacker Alex Singleton.

You probably remember this from last season, but if not, here’s a reminder. The Reserve/COVID-19 list was created to house players who have either come into contact with someone who has tested positive for Coronavirus or players that have contracted the virus themselves.

The Eagles also made roster designations on three other guys: tackle Le’Raven Clark, starting safety Rodney McLeod, and rookie offensive lineman Landon Dickerson, who just signed his rookie deal on the Monday before camp’s beginning.

Le’Raven Clark and Rodney McLeod are now on the team’s PUP (Philly’s active but physically unable to perform list). The rookie, Landon Dickerson, thanks to an injury he sustained in college that he’s still recovering from is now on the team’s Non-Football Injury list.
