After completing the last of their four preseason contests, Chip Kelly and his staff have less than 48 hours to review game film and decide which players to cut. Each NFL team must reduce its roster from the current 75 to the mandated 53 by Saturday evening, which means Kelly will have to rid himself of 22 players who dressed in the final preseason game.
The 27-20 loss against the New York Jets won’t matter in a few days. Michael Vick and the starters didn’t even dress. It was more about the Philadelphia Eagles getting one last in-game experience, especially for those players on the bubble.
