The Philadelphia Eagles have 90 players on the active roster, a number Chip Kelly will have to trim to 53 by the start of the regular season.
Kelly has announced an open competition among his quarterbacks, but injuries to Jeremy Maclin and Arrelious Benn have all but opened the doors at the wide receiver position as well. Uncertainty in the new 3-4 defense means a slew of players will be competing for spots in the front seven, and the secondary could have four new free-agent starters.
For some of the players, their only ticket onto the roster will be fine play on special teams, whether it’s racking up tackles or returning punts and kicks. It’s way too early to think a veteran like Michael Vick or Kenny Phillips could get cut, but the following players are right on the bubble for now.
