There is no roster cutdown from 90 to 75 ahead of the fourth preseason game this year, but the Eagles still decided to begin the process of whittling the team to 53 players by waiving wide receivers Keevan Lucas and David Watford as well as cornerback Tay Glover-Wright.

Watford is the most notable name of the trio. A converted college quarterback, Watford spent the 2016 season on the practice squad. Eagles Hall of Fame wide receiver Mike Quick has said that he believes Watford has the talent to play in the league. The problem for Watford is that he was buried on the depth chart with the offseason upgrades at the position.

Lucas was a tryout player during the Eagles' Rookie Camp this offseason. He was signed as a free agent out of Tulsa during Training Camp.

Glover-Wright was added to the team early in Training Camp after an ACL injury to cornerback Randall Goforth.

The Eagles' final preseason game is Thursday against the New York Jets. The team must get to the league-mandated roster maximum of 53 players by next Saturday, September 2 at 4 p.m.
