OH HECK YEAH BROTHER.
Arcega-Whiteside, the Eagles' second-round rookie who could not get much going in the first couple preseason games as he fielded arm punctures from Cody Kessler and Clayton Thorson. Enter Josh McCown, veteran QB
This is what the Eagles should have hoped for.
AND JJ ARCEGA-WHITESIDE DELIVERED BABY
out of Arcega-Whiteside (with an actual QB): smart, physical play and strong hands. Hey's gonna be Carson Wentz's best friend across the middle.
Paul Worrilow was cut, both Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nigel Bradham are out with injury, and Nate Gerry's arrow is pointing down. Zach Brown (MIKE: Nigel Bradham, WILL: Kamu Grugier-Hill), and Fort is the best candidate at all three spots. 1
THAT LEG LOOKS LIKE IT'S WORKING FOLKS
Josh McCown is a revelation!
McCown's mechanics are not pretty and he does not want to go back, but the game is so much slower for him as compared to Kessler / Thorton, QBs can. Carson Wentz's backup for the season, or at least as long as Nate Sudfeld's out. McCown took a few drives to knock the rust off, but had the humming in the third quarter, and clearly. Check that box.
He did not do anything but I gotta get him on this list so
Greg Ward Jr.
Greg Ward continues to make music with the ball in his hands. I do not think he's a roster guy just yet, but hey clearly WR6 if they want to keep that player.
Kevin Wilkins / Hassan Ridgeway / Treyvon Hester
It's the whole team!
The Eagles' defensive tackle depth chart is out of this world of kookoo-bananas. They traded Bruce Hector, an easily rosterable player, because he's been outplayed by Hassan Ridgeway (my DT4), Treyvon Hester (my DT5), and Kevin Wilkins (my DT6). Wilkins has a good series of weeks and is a strong practice squad candidate.
Against third-stringers, Edwards impressed – he may sneak onto the roster He's not fast, but he's quick to key and a force at contact. Because they are decided to call the game, THANK.
Josh Hawkins / Jeremiah McKinnon
The Eagles have been cycling at the bottom of their CB depth chart for the past two seasons now, they just kick the tires on every big and long body they can find. McKinnon especially sticking out as a varnisher in ball skills and instincts. Let's see what Sojourn Shelton has, shall we?
Goal line drop on a walk-in touchdown? Man.
Eagle's RB depth chart should be able and likely to be – Howard, Sanders, Clement, Sproles.
AGAIN! 1-2 IN THE PRESEASON! PANIC TIME! TEAM IS GONNA BE BAD!
I keep waiting for Josh Perkins – who is a good practitioner, by my eyes and a few other reports – to have a really strong preseason outing and it just is not happening. Meanwhile, Alex Ellis got some important red zone reps, as Ross Tucker outlines on the broadcast, and looks comfortable in his route tree. The Eagles are gonna carry four tight ends, and Perkins wants to be TE4, but it'll be nice to see him translate some good practice into the game.
… does not seagulls, which was supposed to be the shtick here. With Darren Sproles back and Corey Clement back and DeSean Jackson available, Scott's inability to grab a foothold in that role makes it a long shot to find a spot even longer.
