Some of the longer-tenured Philadelphia Eagles should be sweating as training camp nears.

Call it a crazy theory, but even though it’s only June, it feels like the Philadelphia Eagles‘ roster is coming together and we’ve figured out a lot. Sure, we still have to get to camp, and nothing’s decided until we see those preseason games, but at this point, we’re figuring out those depth positions, right?

We all know this is Jalen Hurts’ team and that he has the support of his guys in the locker room. We know Darius Slay, James Bradberry, Marcus Epps, and Anthony Harris aren’t getting cut. Neither is A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, or Boston Scott.

There are a few questions that need answers as we approach Philadelphia Eagles training camp though. There are a few veterans who will be on thin ice when we get there. Tenure won’t save them.

They’ve been around for a while now, some of them longer than others, but as of right now, they haven’t taken their spot on the roster. They’ll be the guys we’re discussing as possible cuts come the end of August. Here are four veterans who are probably going to have a tough hill to climb if they’re going to wind up on the 53-man roster.
