5 recently-added Eagles veterans who may not make the 53-man roster

There are no guarantees for some of the veterans at Eagles training camp, particularly with some of the new guys.

Justin Evans, safety

Justin Evans isn't in the precarious position that some of his Eagles teammates are. The Birds carry five players at the safety position on their 90-man training camp roster, and when it's all said and done, they figure to carry five safeties with them into the regular season.

Things get complicated here, however, if the Eagles make a late addition at the position. They have been known to do so with defensive backs time and time again. Don't be shocked if they amploy a similar strategy during camp.

Dan Arnold (tight end) & Charleston Rambo (wide receiver)

Once upon a time, Eagles QB1 Jalen Hurts, second-year tailback Kennedy Brooks, tight end Grant Calcaterra, and wide receiver Charleston Rambo were teammates at Oklahoma with the Sooners. Fast forward to the present, and they have all been reunited in the City of Brotherly Love. Here's the thing though. Hurts could be the only member of that quartet that makes the 53-man regular-season roster.

Calcaterra could so work. He was on the squad last season. Brooks could spend another season on the practice squad as Philly looks to be locked in on D'Andre Swift, Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, and Rashaad Penny as their running backs.

Rambo was added on May 16th, and he's staring up at ten guys on the depth chart. That includes the locks to make the roster: A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Olamide Zaccheaus, and Quez Watkins. In all likelihood, that means Rambo is in competition with Greg Ward, Jadon Haselwood, Joseph Ngata, Britain Covey, Devon Allen, and Tyrie Cleveland for what appears to be two available spots on the roster.
