Eagles waive Andrew Sendejo

The Eagles parted ways with safety Andrew Sendejo on Tuesday afternoon.

Sendejo signed with the Eagles as a free agent this past offseason after eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. In nine games in 2019, Sendejo recorded 36 tackles, one sack, and one interception in 241 snaps (one start) on defense (41 percent).

According to Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, the Eagles will recoup a compensatory pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by waiving Sendejo.

Fran Duffy noted in his film breakdown that the Eagles utilized a dime subpackage against the Bears that featured four cornerbacks (Jalen Mills, Ronald Darby, Rasul Douglas, and Avonte Maddox) and two safeties instead of three corners and three safeties.

Cornerback Cre'Von LeBlanc is inching closer to a return from a foot injury further bolstering the secondary. The Eagles have the starting tandem of Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod at safety. Maddox's return from his neck injury and concussion is important because he can play both cornerback and safety.
