The process of trimming the Philadelphia Eagles’ 80-man preseason roster to a regular-season version with 53 men on the squad is underway, and things have begun with a bang. According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones, the Carson Strong experiment is over for now. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, but another announcement might.
Eagles and NFL Insider Adam Caplan reports that safety Jaquiski Tartt has been released as well. Tartt was someone that struggled during training camp and the preseason but also missed a lot of valuable time due to a personal matter.
The Birds, according to Pro Football Network Lead NFL reporter Mike Kaye, have also informed running back Jason Huntley that he’ll be waived during final cuts. These, along with the dismissal of center Cameron Tom on Sunday, are among the first cuts to be announced. Many more will follow between now and the 4 p.m. EST deadline on Tuesday, August 30th.
Teams can begin forming their practice squads on August 30th at 12 p.m. EST. Wednesday, August 31st at 4 p.m. EST, players can be placed on injured reserve. Doing so now means they are eligible to return to the roster after at least four missed weeks of the regular season.
The Philadelphia Eagles will trim their begin to make moves to their 53-man roster
Many were still of the opinion that Tartt, due to both playoff and regular-season experience, might find his way onto the roster with Philly gambling that the light bulb would come on eventually. In terms of Strong, he’s someone the Birds could attempt to bring back to the practice squad after he clears waivers. The same can be said about Huntley. We’ll have to wait and see on that front.
