The Philadelphia Eagles roster heading into the 2018 season (starters in bold):
Foles is expected to get the nod Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons, but Wentz should be ready before long. A heckuva QB room.
No player truly separated himself from the pack in the fight for the fourth running back spot. A hamstring injury sidelined former fourth-round pick Donnel Pumphrey, and he was cut. Rookie Josh Adams flashed, but had a hard time staying healthy and also was cut. So Smallwood was the survivor
Plenty of people were rooting for Carter, the 25-year-old out of Sacramento State was on a mission to win a roster spot in honor of his brother, who died in 2013 of heart complications. He impressed against the Browns in the third preseason game and won the spot.
Coach Doug Pederson is in good shape at tight end with the one-two punch of Ertz and Goedert, the second-round pick out of South Dakota State. With Rodgers banged up for part of the offseason, the Eagles opt to go with four tight ends.
Mailata, the Australian Rugby Leauge player-turned-offensive tackle, has only been playing the sport for a few months and is rough around the edges. But he's an athletic freak and has proven to be a fast learner. He is on the 53-man roster and is bursting with upside.
Tim Jernigan is still recovering from herniated disc surgery. He could start the season on the non-football injury list. He will start the season on the non-football injury list. Steven Means is a favorite among teammates and coaches and is a bit of a surprise cut.
Nigel Bradham is suspended for Week 1, so the Eagles can carry an extra linebacker for now.
Safety/special-teams ace Chris Maragos isn't all the way back from a PCL injury and will start the year on an injury list. De’Vante Bausby was competing for the nickel corner job early but had a somewhat quiet preseason.
Johnston has had his share of highs (including an 81-yard punt that was negated by penalty in the first game of the preseason) and lows this summer, but he's been more steady of late.
