Well, at some point, you knew that it had to happen. The Philadelphia Eagles have a ton of talent on their practice squad, and at some point, you just knew that one of the other 31 NFL teams would come sniffing around. The Tennessee Titans, in need of some offensive line assistance, became the first team to raid Philly’s cupboard on the final Tuesday of September.

Le’Raven Clark trades midnight green, black, and silver for the navy blue and Titans blue of the guys playing down in Nashville, Tennessee. Tennessee’s decision to sign him off of the Eagles’ scout team means he’s now on the Titans roster. It’s a move that makes sense as starting left tackle Taylor Lewan suffered a season-ending knee injury just two weeks into the 2022 NFL season.

The Philadelphia Eagles have an open spot on their practice squad.

Clark’s subtraction now means Philadelphia has 16 men on their practice squad and room for one more. Remember Matt Leo joined the Eagles by way of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program in 2020, so he’s a special roster exemption.

Here’s a list of everyone else on the Eagles’ scout team: wide receiver Devon Allen, defensive tackle Marvin Wilson, offensive tackle Jarrid Williams, tight end Noah Togiai, center Cameron Tom, running back Kennedy Brooks, wide receiver Deon Cain, safety Andre Chachere, wide receiver Britain Covey, linebacker Davion Taylor, wide receiver Auden Tate, linebacker Christian Elliss, cornerback Mario Goodrich, tight end Dalton Keene, and cornerback Mac McCain III.

As for Le’Raven Clark, he has some big shoes to fill. The man he’s replacing, Taylor Lewan, is a three-time Pro Bowler (2016–2018). He isn’t what he once was as he’s gotten older, but he’s still one of the better left tackles in the NFL when healthy. Fingers are crossed for a speedy recovery on his end.
