Saturday afternoon is the deadline for NFL teams to get down to the 53-man roster limit. As of Thursday, there were still 75 players on the Philadelphia Eagles roster, with the game against the Jets the last chance for nearly two dozen players to make an impression on Andy Reid.
Now that the game is over, it’s time to decide. It’s a little easier now that the Michael Vick situation is sorted out, but it’s still a tough 48 hours for those on the bubble.
Obviously, there are 30 or so guys who are a lock to make the team. And for those 22 who are cut, there are still eight practice squad spots to be had.
So, with that in mind, it’s time for me to play armchair GM and wager a guess as to who survives, who goes and who becomes practice squad fodder.
