The Philadelphia Eagles officially trimmed their roster to the 53-man limit on Saturday but that doesn’t mean the team is done making changes. The Eagles may release players and sign others before their Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday evening.
Sunday’s action involves the NFL waiver wire and the formation of a 10-man practice squad. The Eagles rank 32nd in the NFL waiver wire order so they will have to hope the 31 teams ahead of them don’t want a player in order for Philadelphia’s claim to be successful. The waiver period ends at 12:00 PM ET today.
As far as the practice squad is concerned, read this FAQ for more information on salary, eligibility, rules, etc. Teams can officially begin forming practice squads starting after 1:00 PM ET.
