A dozen bubble players who are likely to be left off the Eagles' 53-man roster

Another training camp approaches, and that means guys are looking to extend their stay in Philly with the Eagles.

Trey Sermon, running back

Talk about the Eagles' running back room long enough, and you'll learn that you can dedicate an extended amount of time to discussing the guys we believe are locks to make the roster (D'Andre Swift, Kenneth Gainwell, Rashaad Penny, and Boston Scott) and ignoring a fan favorite, Trey Semon, entirely.

Sermon notched two carries during two in-game appearances last season. Much of the fan base wants to see him earn a shot, but it has become increasingly evident that this is unlikely to occur.

Kennedy Brooks, running back

If you believe constructing an argument for Sermon's addition to the roster is difficult, try coming up with one for Kennedy Brooks. Philly carries six running backs on the 90-man roster ahead of training camp. That number figures to trim to four guys that will be carried on the 53-man roster.

Brooks has some talent. Despite that, he appears to be on a collision course with the practice squad.

Grant Calcaterra, tight end

Grant Calcaterra isn't a long shot to make the roster per se, but he also has zero guarantees and minimal room for error. He made the 53-man roster last season. He appeared in 15 regular-season games wit two starts. That led to five receptions for 85 yards. During camp he'll be tryng to stave off. Dan Arnold, Dalton Keene, and Tyree Jackson. One would think Jack Stoll would enter camp as the TE2 behind Dallas Goedert.
