54. . . . Andre Chachere, safety. 21. player

Kyzir White has no concerns about being left off of the 53-man roster, and there’s a chance that Andre Chachere and Marlon Tuipulotu will join him there.

We could be wrong about this. So much has happened since K’Von Wallace joined the Eagles as the 127th-overall selection of the 2020 NFL Draft, but doesn’t it feel like Andre Chachere has made more plays during this camp than Wallace has made during the past two?

Don’t get us wrong. Wallace should and probably will make the roster, but if the Eagles can find room for him, they have to find room for Chachere as well. He’s been awesome.

. . Kyzir White, linebacker. 43. player. 54.

We knew Kyzir White was good. We didn’t know he was this good. He breaks up passes in coverage. He diffuses and disrupts screen plays. He’s solid as a pass rusher.

Sure, there has to be a weakness in his game somewhere. Everyone has one or two, but so far, it’s been difficult to find flaws with most of what Kyzir has done whenever he’s been on the field.

54. . . . Marlon Tuipulotu, defensive tackle. 95. player

We’re ready to make a statement. The Eagles have to keep five defensive tackles. Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Jordan Davis, and Milton Williams are assured of roster spots. Second-year man, Marlon Tuipulotu has been so good and has shown so much improvement that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to argue that it makes sense to move on from him.

Hot. Reasons Sinnett can pass Minshew on the depth chart. light

The goal is always to keep the best 53 players, and Marlon has definitely proved himself as such over these past two weeks. Carry one less safety, three tailbacks, or rob another position. We don’t care how it’s worked out, but again, the Birds have to keep five defensive tackles and figure out a way to get them all involved on defense. There’s just too much talent at the position.
