The Philadelphia Eagles have until Saturday, Aug. 31, to reduce their roster to the league-mandated 53 players. The team was up to 90 players at the beginning of training camp. A wave of cuts put the Eagles at 75, and 13 more after the fourth preseason game places the Eagles at their current number of 62.
Chip Kelly will have to decide which nine players to release to get his roster to 53. Many of the spots are locks. Michael Vick isn't going anywhere. All of the remaining draft picks should be safe. And now that Kenny Phillips and Dennis Dixon have already been released, every free-agent acquisition should be a guarantee to make the roster.
The following five players are in danger, though. Whether it be a high cap cost in 2013, declining performances or a logjam at a certain position, the following five are toss-ups as to whether they will still be Eagles by tomorrow.
