Eagles waive DT Bruce Hector, DB Prince Smith

The Eagles made a pair of roster moves Friday when they waived defensive tackle Bruce Hector and defensive back Prince Smith.

Hector is the most notable of the two as he been on and off the Eagles roster the last two seasons. The Eagles originally acquired Hector as an undrafted free agent after a successful college career at South Florida.

Although he saw multiple stints on the practice squad, injuries to the interior defensive line allowed Hector the opportunity to play in eight games in 2018 and three more in 2019. Hector's departure leaves the Eagles with six defensive tackles on the roster.

Smith was signed by the Eagles this offseason as an undrafted free agent out of New Hampshire. Minus Smith, the Eagles' secondary remains very crowded heading into Training Camp.

With these moves, the Eagles now have 77 players on the active roster.
