NEWEST UPDATES POSTED AT THE TOP OF THIS SECTION. Read from bottom up for chronological order.
MONDAY, AUGUST 30
[2:00 PM ET] – The Eagles activated Rodney McLeod from PUP and Landon Dickerson from NFI. This confirms they’ll both be on the 53-man roster. McLeod was expected to be on but Dickerson’s status was less clear.
[6:28 AM ET] – The Eagles are reportedly fielding trade offers for their offensive linemen and their linebackers. The latter is a bit of a surprise. The Eagles have a lot of bodies at that spot but hardly boast a bevy of proven options.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 29
[10:40 AM ET] – The Eagles waived RB Elijah Holyfield, WR Marken Michel, TE Cary Angeline, DE JaQuan Bailey, and LB Rashad Smith. Roster officially down to 65 players.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 28
[11:55 AM ET] – The Eagles traded a conditional 2022 sixth-round pick in exchange for QB Gardner Minshew. In a corresponding move, the Eagles released QB Nick Mullens.
The following players were not “waived” because they’re vested veterans and are now free to sign with any team.
