With the regular-season opener against Atlanta in just five days, the Eagles were at the NovaCare Complex on Saturday going through what would typically be an in-season Tuesday with lifting and meetings. On the second floor of the building, however, the personnel staff conducted the difficult process of reducing the roster to meet the 53-player limit ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline.
Here is a look at the transactions made by the team:
Placed DT Tim Jernigan on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. He will miss at least the first six games of the season.
Placed S Chris Maragos on the Reserve/Physically Unable of Perform list. He, too, will miss at least the first six games of the season.
Released: WR Kamar Aiken, DE Steven Means, WR Markus Wheaton
Waived/Injured: CB D.J. Killings, TE Gannon Sinclair, T Toby Weathersby
Waived: RB Josh Adams, CB De'Vante Bausby, LB Asantay Brown, TE Billy Brown, QB Joe Callahan, DT Winston Craig, WR Rashard Davis, TE Anthony Denham, G Aaron Evans, DE Danny Ezechukwu, S Ironhead Gallon, G Darrell Greene, QB Christian Hackenberg, T Taylor Hart, RB Matt Jones, DE Joe Ostman, WR Darius Prince, RB Donnel Pumphrey, DT Elijah Qualls, S Jeremy Reaves, DT Aziz Shittu, CB Chandon Sullivan, C Jon Toth, WR Bryce Treggs, WR Greg Ward, LB Jaboree Williams, LB Kyle Wilson, and WR Tim Wilson.
The roster is certainly not finalized. Teams have until Sunday at noon to make waiver claims for players released today, and one hour later can begin forming the 10-player practice squads.
