Former Eagles reserves claimed off waivers by former coordinators

NFL teams spent their Tuesdays in full grind mode. The goal was the same for all 32 franchises, and that was true of the teams that we don't expect much from this season, like the Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts. It was also true of the legitimate Super Bowl contenders like, you guessed it, the Philadelphia Eagles. The same discussions that were being entertained at the NovaCare Complex were occurring for both the haves and have-nots. Pro football's deadlines extend to all.

4 p.m. EST came and went but not before the Birds had reduced their roster to the allowable 53 men. There were some noticeable highlights... or absences. For instance, Philly doesn't have a punter.

We also saw familiar faces leave. That led to yet another discussion. Might some of the young guys we have gotten to know return after a brief trip through the waiver wire?

That has turned out to be the story for many of the young Birds, but two have flown elsewhere.

K'Von Wallace and Josh Sills join their former Eagles coordinators in Arizona and Indianapolis respectively.

The Eagles' recent success meant they would land 31st in the ordering system of the most recent NFL waiver claims pool. In the end, they elected against placing any claims on players, but two members of their 2022 roster have landed in other cities.

Safety K'Von Wallace rejoins his former defensive coordinator of two seasons, Jonathan Gannon, in Arizona as a member of the Cardinals. Josh Sills landed in Indianapolis with his former offensive coordinator, Shane Steichen.

None of that is too terribly surprising. Players and coaches form relationships. Guys tend to place their trust in guys they already know. Still, such occurrences are always interesting. Don't be shocked if you see much of Philly's recently released talent return to the nest and do so fairly soon.
