The Philadelphia Eagles family is an all-inclusive bunch, a contingent of loyal supporters who come from various backgrounds and belief systems. That always makes for an interesting discussion/debate, but there are times when we all agree. One need only revisit 4 p.m. EST on August 29th if you are seeking an example.

Social media can be annoying. It is often a breeding ground for negativity, but occasionally, it's a pretty cool hang-out spot where intriguing discussions brew. As the deadline for trimming NFL rosters to 53 men came and went, Birds fans on X gathered to discuss everything from the surprises to the addition of fan favorites.

The Eagles release their initial 2023 practice squad.

Most of us have followed the Philadelphia Eagles and the NFL long enough to know how this stuff works. The introduction of the initial 53-man roster means teams will earn an opportunity to pluck prospects from the NFL's waiver wire... or lose them.

K'Von Wallace and Josh Sills landed on other rosters and rejoined their former coordinators in Arizona and Indianapolis respectively. That reunites K'Von with former Eagles defensive coordinator/Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon. Sills realigns himself with former Eagles offensive coordinator/current Colts head coach Shane Steichen.

The Birds crafted their practice squad shortly thereafter. It was introduced shortly after lunchtime on Wednesday.

13 of the allowable 16 spots are filled. Three more players can be added. Keep your eyes peeled for updates. The 2023 Philadelphia Eagles roster is coming along nicely.

Update (August 31st) - Eagles fill out the remainder of their practice squad.

Shortly before lunch time on the East Coast, the Eagles announced the acquisition of three more practice squad players: defensive tackles Thomas Booker, offensive tackle Le'Raven Clark, and cornerback Tiawan Mullen.
