The Eagles made a pair of roster moves waiving center Keegan Render and releasing cornerback Trevor Williams. Rookies and first-year players reported for testing at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday. The Eagles now have 88 players on the roster, including defensive end Matt Leo, an international practice squad exemption for 2020.
• Render was a rookie free agent out of Iowa in 2019. He spent the entire preseason on the roster before being released during the final roster cutdown. He was signed to the practice squad during the season. Following the year, he inked a reserve/future contract.
• With Render not in the mix, the Eagles have 15 offensive linemen in Training Camp, including four players with the ability to play center (Nate Herbig, Luke Juriga, Jason Kelce, and Isaac Seumalo).
• Williams also entered the league as a rookie free agent, but back in 2016 with the then-San Diego Chargers. The 5-11, 191-pound Williams played 37 games (27 starts) with the Chargers and registered 106 tackles, three interceptions, 23 pass breakups, and a fumble recovery.
• He was waived off Injured Reserve early in the 2019 season and claimed by the Arizona Cardinals where he played in two games. He was waived in October and finished the season without a team. Williams joined the Eagles on a reserve/future contract in January.
• The Eagles now have 17 defensive backs entering Training Camp. The secondary features some of the best Training Camp battles including who will start opposite Darius Slay at cornerback, who will line up in the nickel, and who will join Rodney McLeod at safety.
