Goedert made a strong case for a larger role with a 33-334-4 receiving line on 44 targets his rookie season, but it will be tough to find regular snaps for everyone in a pass-catching corps that also includes tight end Zach Ertz and wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (rib), DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor and JJ Arcega-Whiteside. The Eagles already upped their use of two-TE formations to accommodate Goedert last season, and they could be headed for another increase if he looks good throughout the spring and summer. Even if it doesn't lead to steady target volume early in the year, Goedert's efficient production from 2018 suggests he'd be a valuable fantasy commodity if Ertz were to miss time with an injury.
Tuesday reportedly marked the receiver's first practice since last September. The fact Hollins was able to get on the field during this week's three-day minicamp bodes very well for his availability for training camp next month.
LeBlanc didn't see any live action until he signed with Detroit in October, and he didn't have a significant defensive role until he was released by the Lions and scooped up by the Eagles in November. Thanks to the all the injuries in Philadelphia's secondary, LeBlanc ultimately was needed to man a heavy snap count down the stretch and into the postseason. While Ronald Darby (knee) will be a free agent this offseason, a healthy Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring) could shrink LeBlanc's role ahead of the 2019 campaign.
Maddox wasn't a regular on defense until Week 5 after he made a nice pick in limited action Week 4. The 2018 fourth-rounder seemed to improve as the season went on, and no other cornerback allowed fewer yards per snap in coverage by the time the regular season came to an end, per Pro Football Focus. Maddox then went out with a bang, statistically speaking, during the Eagles' two-game playoff run in which he totaled 13 tackles and four pass breakups against the Bears and Saints. Philadelphia likely will be counting on the Pitt product to man another large role in 2019, especially if Ronald Darby (knee) leaves in free agency.
Johnson was one of the top players in the Alliance of American Football, leading the now-defunct league in catches (45), targets (70) and receiving yards (687), while only Rashad Ross bested his five receiving touchdowns. The 30-year-old also has a noteworthy NFL track record, as he was selected by Green Bay in the seventh round of the 2013 draft and ended up playing 39 games for Minnesota from 2014 to 2016. Johnson even had a brief stretch of fantasy relevance late in the 2014 campaign with six straight games of at least 38 receiving yards. He could push for the No. 4 wide receiver job in Philadelphia, competing with the likes of Mack Hollins (groin), Shelton Gibson, Braxton Miller, Johnny Holton and Greg Ward.
Ostman (6-foot-3, 255 pounds) is a second-year edge player who went undrafted last spring and spent the entire season on Philadelphia's practice squad. He'll have to compete with the likes of Josh Sweat and Shareef Miller for a roster spot after an offseason in which the Eagles brought back Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham in free agency. Ostman's path could open up depending on the fallout of Chris Long's retirement decision.
The exact nature of Agholor's situation isn't clear, but the missed reps shouldn't be a huge problem for the 26-year-old who's already well-versed in Pederson's system. There will only be concern for his regular-season availability if Agholor's absence continues into training camp.
Vaitai is expected to return to his role as Lane Johnson's backup at right tackle Sunday versus the Redskins.
Arcega-Whiteside (6-foot-2, 225 pounds) is a big wideout with a rich skill set and the ability to play both the slot and outside at a high level. While he lacks standout athleticism (4.49-second 40), Arcega-Whiteside's route running and ball skills are off the charts, showing an innate ability to set himself in an advantageous position and winning the vast majority of jump-ball situations. Arcega-Whiteside's box-out ability in the end zone is about the closest that you get to a pro wrestling-style finishing move in football. At Stanford, it seemed to surface so frequently it felt almost scripted, and his college stats seem to bear that out (28 touchdowns on 135 career catches). It's a deep pass-catching corps in Philadelphia, so JJAW is more of a long-term asset than an immediate one, but he's not the kind of guy you want to bet against.
Fort will head to his fourth NFL team for his age-29 season after spending the last three seasons in Pittsburgh, and is coming off the best season of his five-year career. He racked up 48 combined tackles (38 solo) in 2018, in addition to a sack and one defensive touchdown. Fort is also an experienced special teamer, logging a career-high 333 snaps on special teams in 2018. Look for him to play a versatile role in Philadelphia.
Tye signed to the Eagles' practice squad in November after being waived by the Patriots with an injury settlement prior to Week 1. The tight end will have a chance to impress during the 2019 offseason program and training camp, but may have a hard time cracking Philadelphia's 53-man roster with Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers all occupying the depth chart.
The severity of Gerry's injury remains undisclosed, but he appears to be a game-time decision. If Gerry were to be sidelined for any amount of time, LaRoy Reynolds would step in as Philadelphia's starting right outside linebacker.
Bouka spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. He'll look to find a depth role elsewhere this offseason.
Grugier-Hill was only used as anything more than a rotational player when Jordan Hicks missed time with a calf injury from Weeks 12 through 15, a span in which the former generated over half of his total tackles as well as his only sack and forced fumble. Had Hicks stayed healthy, Grugier-Hill's numbers likely wouldn't look as nice. The 2016 sixth-rounder nonetheless remains under contract with the Eagles for another year and should be able to carve out some sort of role ahead of the 2019 campaign.
It's a bit early to reach any conclusions, but it isn't crazy to think Miller could enter a competition with Shelton Gibson and Mack Hollins for the No. 4 job at wide receiver. The 2016 third-rounder had just 261 receiving yards on 805 offensive snaps in two seasons with Houston and then spent most of 2018 on the Philadelphia practice squad.
Jenkins was not present for OTAs in May -- likely related to his desire for a new contract -- but his arrival for minicamp indicates he won't be holding out for a new deal. The 31-year-old has two years remaining on the four-year, $35 million extension he signed he signed in 2016, but the spending spree at safety this offseason reset the market for the position. Jenkins has been an unquestioned leader of the defense and had 97 tackles (79 solo), one sack, one interception and three forced fumbles last season.
Edwards had potential to be a late-round pick after totaling 112 tackles, three sacks and three interceptions during his senior season at Wisconsin, but ultimately ended up going unselected. He exceeded 80 tackles in all four years as a Badger and figures to serve in a special teams role if he can crack the 53-man roster.
Michel bargained an early release from the Canadian Football League on Wednesday so that he could join the Eagles' expanded 90-man roster as soon as possible. The 25-year-old brother of Patriots' running back Sony Michel was a standout receiver during his two years in the CFL and will now work to carve out a role with Philadelphia. The Eagles are likely to look at Michel as a depth wideout or running back, but his remarkable speed also could earn him usage on special teams.
While a repeat of last year's career-high 156 targets is unlikely, Ertz seems to be hinting at the potential for improvement on a career-low mark of 10.0 yards per catch. In addition to his excitement about playing with Jackson, the 28-year-old tight end mentioned that this past offseason was the best he's had in the NFL. He made a quick recovery from the nagging injures he dealt with late in the 2018 campaign, allowing him to reach some new personal bests in the weight room during the Eagles' offseason workout program. Ertz doesn't have any limitations for spring practices, nor does quarterback Carson Wentz.
Following a torn ACL last season, this is positive news considering his injury is one that could restrict cutting and lateral movement. Darby himself already said he expects to be ready for Week 1, and this news confirms that notion. The 25-year-old is expected to once again take over as the team's top corner after he made 43 tackles and one interception last season in just nine games.
Not that it was ever likely to happen, but this should end any slim chance for Howard to sign an extension as he prepares for the final season of his rookie contract. Coach Doug Pederson's track record suggests he'll rely on at least two or three running backs each week, with Howard, Sanders, Corey Clement (knee), Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams all in the mix. Howard is the best bet to take the first snap of the season, but his proven lack of receiving ability is a major drawback, while Sanders at least offers some potential in that regard. There's also a vast gap in the resources devoted to each player, as Howard was acquired from Chicago for a mere sixth-round pick.
Adams underwent surgery on the labrum in his shoulder in January and was originally given a recovery timetable of six months. With the end of that timetable approaching, Adams is officially back on the practice field in some capacity. A return to full strength can't come soon enough for Adams, as he'll have to fight hard for a spot on the Eagles' 53-man roster with the team currently boasting a loaded backfield.
Singleton's last college season was in 2014, and he hasn't suited up for an NFL game since. If the Eagles truly need reinforcements at linebacker, they'll likely utilize a promising draft instead, so Singleton projects to the practice squad.
With Jalen Mills (foot) and Ronald Darby (knee) recovering from injuries, Jones was able to step in and be the top corner in practice. 2019 is a big year for the third-year pro, having played just 10 games the past two seasons while dealing with Achilles and hamstring injuries to start his NFL career. This news seems to suggest that as long as Jones can stay healthy, he could be in line for at least some sort of role in the Eagles' defense next season.
Limited by a herniated disc in his back, Jernigan made just five appearances (including two during the playoffs) in the first season of his four-year, $48 million extension. While the deal appears cumbersome at first glance, the Eagles will only take $6 million in dead money on their books if they trade or release Jernigan before March 13, per overthecap.com. It's unclear if the 26-year-old would have any interest in discussing a pay cut, considering he'd be one of the top defensive tackles on the market if he reached free agency. While not quite dominant as an interior pass rusher, Jernigan did average 30.5 tackles, 10.8 quarterback hits and 3.9 sacks over 14.5 games through his first four NFL seasons.
Igwebuike was an undrafted rookie in 2018 and played six games between the Buccaneers and 49ers, playing strictly on special teams. The Eagles already have their starters at safety, so Igwebuike will look to carve out a place on special teams in Philly as well.
Fipp said of Jackson, "I'm sure he will have a role [on special teams]. Exactly what that is, I don't know that anyone knows that totally yet." Jackson returned punts for the Eagles during his first stint with the team, with 14 returns for 71 yards during his final season in 2013. The 32-year-old is likely to be utilized as a situational option, particularly in late-game circumstances. Jackson appears to be fully recovered from the Achilles injury that he dealt with down the stretch last season with the Buccaneers.
The 2010 first-round pick has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, playing out his rookie contract followed by a four-year, $26 million deal. While never quite dominant as a pass rusher, Graham offers a nice mixture of durability, consistency and versatility, with five straight seasons recording at least 39 tackles, four sacks and 15 appearances. He'll celebrate his 31st birthday in April and should be locked in as a starter at defensive end for the Eagles.
Mailata also disclosed his recovery timetable to be about six weeks, meaning that the rookie seventh-round selection will not be in danger of missing offseason workouts. He'll focus his attention on a 2019 return.
Wisniewski started in 24 games for the Eagles over three seasons, primarily at guard. The Penn State product could see additional time if fellow guard Brandon Brooks (Achilles) isn't ready to start the season.
Jeffery also participated in individual drills during the first day of minicamp Tuesday, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. While he hardly participated in team drills, the 29-year-old is at least on an upward trajectory after missing most of OTAs this spring due to the fractured ribs he played through down the stretch of the 2018 season. There's a chance he could open training camp as a full participant next month.
Hector has appeared in six games across multiple stints with the Eagles this season and takes the roster spot of Jalen Mills (foot), who was placed on injured reserve. The 24-year-old should play a rotational role on the defensive line as Michael Bennett (foot) and Timmy Jernigan (back) are questionable for Sunday's game at Dallas.
Selected by New Orleans in the sixth round of the 2018 draft, Scott is listed at 5-foot-6, 203 pounds. He spent most of his rookie year on the Saints practice squad until the Eagles poached him in December. While the comparison makes sense in terms of size, Scott faces an uphill battle to earn the kind of role Sproles occupied the past few seasons. Fellow Eagles running backs Corey Clement (knee) and Wendell Smallwood have proven capable of handling passing downs, while Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders (hamstring) already appear locked into roster spots based on their running ability. Scott still warrants watching throughout the summer, particularly if Clement and Sanders struggle to get healthy.
Hall only suited up two games for the Bears in 2017 and didn't make a tackle. He'll serve as a depth option in Philly and will be far from an IDP asset. The third-year pro will also sit out Week 1 against the Falcons for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Entering his fourth season in the league, Perkins has appeared in only 17 games for the Eagles and Falcons over his career and caught eight passes for 109 yards and a score along the way. He's coming off a 2018 campaign in which the tight end finished the year on injured reserve, but Perkins has since returned to team drills this spring, according to Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger. Now healthy, the challenge for Perkins this summer will be to unseat Richard Rodgers for the No. 3 role.
Agudosi spent most of the 2018 season on the Cardinals' practice squad and had inked a reserve/futures contract with Arizona prior to signing with Philadelphia. At best he'll figure to be a depth receiver and special teams player for the Eagles this postseason. Don't expect him to have much of a role on offense barring a rash of injuries at the position.
Brooks is recovering from a ruptured Achilles and has been out of a walking boot the past few months. He's been aiming at a return in time for the 2019 regular season and his absence from OTAs is not surprising.
The Eagles have been among the league leaders in using two- and three-tight end packages under head coach Doug Pederson, so the third tight end on the roster is more important than usual in Philadephia than other places. Rodgers' return to the Eagles could therefore be of importance in fantasy should something happen to Zach Ertz or Dallas Goedert in 2019.
Curry visited with a number of teams since being cut loose from Tampa Bay last month, but he's now officially heading back to the team he won a Super Bowl with just two seasons ago. It's not clear how large a role he'll have in his age-31 season, but Curry nonetheless figures to maintain a key role in the defensive end rotation. His importance would become even more pronounced if Chris Long decides to hang up the cleats.
Elston wasn't on a roster in the 2018 season, but found a home with the Eagles in hopes of making the roster in 2019. The 25-year-old spent time with both the Eagles and Bills in 2017, making 19 tackles (10 solo) and one interception in 14 games.
Ward is a familiar face who spent most of 2017 on Philadelphia's practice squad, while Johnson has no history with the organization but led the AAF in catches and receiving yards. A 2017 fifth-round pick, Gibson was active for 15 games in 2018, playing 151 snaps on special teams and just 64 on offense. He'll compete with Johnson, Ward, Mack Hollins (groin), Braxton Miller and a few other players for what likely will be two or three roster spots. Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Nelson Agholor are locked in atop the Eagles' depth chart at wide receiver.
Barnett appeared in just six games during his second season, largely thanks to a torn rotator cuff in one of his shoulders that required season-ending surgery to repair. However, it doesn't seem as if the 2017 first-rounder is at risk of missing most of the Eagles' offseason program, a time Barnett could use to strengthen his position within an Eagles defensive line rotation that could lose both Brandon Graham and Chris Long via unrestricted free agency this spring.
Johnson originally carried a cap hit of about $15 million for 2019 after inking a five-year, $56.26 million deal following the 2015 season. The 28-year-old will now have a cap hit of $7.24 million during the upcoming season, per Spotrac.com.
Seumalo played in at least 13 games during each of the last two seasons, showcasing his versatility by playing at multiple positions on the offensive line. With Brandon Brooks rehabbing from an Achilles injury sustained during the playoffs, Seumalo could slot into the starting lineup to begin the 2019 season.
Elliott was scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent, essentially locking him in for another year in Philadelphia even before Friday's agreement. The 24-year-old kicker has converted 83.9 percent of field-goal attempts and 93.5 percent of PATs through two seasons, including 19 of 21 from 40-49 yards and seven of 11 from 50-plus. Given his attachment to an above-average offense, Elliott makes sense as a low-end kicker option with some upside in the final round of 2019 fantasy drafts.
Ward accounted for 70 touchdowns in his final two seasons (2015-16) playing quarterback at the University of Houston and caught on with the Philadelphia practice squad as an undrafted rookie wideout in 2017. Released by the Eagles at the end of 2018 training camp, Ward joined the San Antonio Commanders of the now-defunct AAF, catching 22 of 40 targets for 214 yards in eight games. He'll be a long shot to stick on the 53-man roster, competing with Mack Hollins (groin), Shelton Gibson, Braxton Miller, Johnny Holton and AAF receiving leader Charles Johnson.
Worrilow is apparently progressing well in his recovery from a torn ACL but will require another month of rehab before being cleared to practice. The 29-year-old missed all of last season after suffering the injury at OTAs in May 2018.
The long snapper joined the Eagles in 2016 after starter Jon Dernbos suffered a broken wrist. However, Lovato wound up winning the job outright, which eventually led to Dernbos being traded to begin the 2017 season. The one-year contract is expected to be near the veteran minimum.
This doesn't sound like anything that would warrant a lengthy suspension, but it's a safe bet the NFL investigates the incident after Mills and Washington Wizards forward Devin Robinson both were arrested and charged with disorderly affray. The 25-year-old cornerback is hoping to bounce back from a season-ending foot injury in time for the start of training camp, now facing tough competition for snaps at a position group that also includes Ronald Darby (knee), Avonte Maddox, Cre'von LeBlanc, Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas.
McKinnon was cut after the Browns promoted running back Dontrell Hilliard to the 53-man roster. McKinnon was recently called up from the Browns' practice squad Oct. 2, and he made his NFL debut Sunday against the Ravens. The 25-year-old is now free to sign with any team.
Wentz had two years remaining on his rookie contract, so his extension will keep him with Philadelphia through the 2024 season. The young passer has missed eight games the past two seasons, plus both playoff runs, but has lived up to the billing of his second overall selection in the 2016 draft when healthy. He's at full strength for offseason practices and will look to put forth another strong season while staying on the field in 2019.
With Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod still atop the roster in Philadelphia, it isn't likely that Sendejo will start, though he could play a key role in certain packages. The 31-year-old has amassed 58 starts, 356 tackles and six interceptions in his NFL career.
Thorson was a four-year starter at Northwestern but he didn't seem to significantly improve from season to season. However, his less-than-stellar supporting cast may have played a role in that, not to mention the ACL injury he suffered in the 2017 Music City Bowl. In Philadelphia, Thorson will attempt to push Nate Sudfeld for the backup role behind Carson Wentz. The former Wildcat showed at his pro day in March that the ankle injury that impeded Thorson's combine training is a thing of the past.
Sweat's rookie season ended in Week 14 after the Florida State product injured his ankle, which promptly sent him to injured reserve. However, the idea that Sweat could be recovered in just a few months suggests the 2018 fourth-rounder didn't tear up his ankle too badly. If Sweat is able to make it back for OTAs, he'll have a full offseason to climb up a depth chart that may no longer have either Brandon Graham or Chris Long, both of whom will become unrestricted free agents in March.
Burwell originally landed on injured reserve due to injury, but he and the Colts have decided to part ways after the two sides agreed to a settlement. He's now free to sign elsewhere, assuming he goes unclaimed through waivers.
Pumphrey, a 2017 fourth-round pick of the Eagles, signed with Philadelphia's practice squad in October after spending his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. He will have another opportunity to make final roster cuts in the leadup to the 2019 campaign.
Sullivan has steadily climbed the ranks in Philadelphia since signing as an undrafted free agent out of D-II Shepard University in 2017. He has since been waived at least twice and has spent a significant amount of time on the Eagles' practice squad, but Sullivan finally saw time on the active roster in 2018 and ultimately logged more than 50 percent of the defensive snaps in six of the final eight games, including the playoffs. He remains under contract through the 2019 season.
Even though Countess had his base salary lowered from $2.025 million, he'll still get the opportunity to make up for the lost compensation in the form of performance-based incentives. The Auburn product spent his first three NFL seasons with the Rams, recording 54 tackles (38 solo), one sack, three pass breakups and two interceptions across 37 games. Countess is expected to vie for a depth role in the Eagles secondary during the upcoming campaign.
Kessler will be one of five passers making up the Eagles' quarterback room. Although the USC product was released Thursday and spent all of two days as a free agent, Kessler is likely just serving as competition -- or simply a veteran presence -- for one of the backup roles in Philadelphia. Kessler's most recent action came last season when he started for Jacksonville in Weeks 13-16, completing 64 of 101 passes (63.4 percent) for just 553 yards (5.5 YPA), one touchdown and one interception.
Sudfeld will receive approximately $3.1 million for 2019 and then have the chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The Eagles' decision to use a second-round tender instead of an original-round tender suggests they view Sudfeld as the unquestioned replacement for Nick Foles in the No. 2 quarterback role.
Schefter's initial report mistakenly placed the total value at $10 million, which is actually the annual average. The updated terms are far more reasonable, considering Jackson is 29 years old and had 18 sacks in his three seasons with Jacksonville. He'll slide in as a starter next to Fletcher Cox, giving the Eagles a solid argument for the most fearsome interior-line duo in the league, though it could just as easily be argued that Aaron Donald plus any warm body is superior.
The tackle total was good for a share of the team lead with Malcolm Jenkins. Bradham was well worth the five-year contract he got last offseason and will count $9 million against the cap next year. The 29-year-old should be a good bet for at least another 90 tackles in 2019 but does not have much IDP upside beyond that.
Brown joined the Eagles on a one-year deal in early May and Monday is the first open session of practice he's participated. According to Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News, he 29-year-old was working with the second-team nickel defense as he makes his return from the torn oblique that plagued him through the 2018 season.
Ridgeway has played in 41 games with the Colts across the last three seasons, registering 18 tackles and 4.5 sacks in his career. A fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Ridgeway will join a loaded defensive line that just re-signed Timmy Jernigan on Thursday.
Cox continues to rehab from offseason foot surgery and still appears on track for a July 24 training camp return after missing spring workouts. The veteran defensive tackle is coming off an impressive 2018 campaign in which he notched a career-high 10.5 sacks across 16 games.
Sanders has seemingly been sidelined since the start of OTAs, which in turn has meant missing many valuable opportunities to flash his quickness and 4.49 speed before the pads come on. While that may have ensured Jordan Howard of having a leg up on the competition for the lead role entering training camp, the rookie presumably has still been able to learn the playbook and shouldn't have a problem carving out a significant role before Week 1, should Sanders maintain his health.
Peters originally carried a cap hit of around $13 million for the 2019 season and now will have a maximum cap hit of $10 million, including $5.5 million in guarantees. Under the new one-year deal, the mainstay left tackle will return for his 11th straight season in Philadelphia. The 37-year-old started all 16 regular-season games and both the Eagles' playoff contests in 2018, coming off a torn ACL and MCL that ended his 2017 season.
The Eagles traded for Jordan Howard and drafted Miles Sanders in the second round, leaving the rest of their running backs to battle for one or two roster spots. Corey Clement (knee) will have a good chance to secure one of those spots if he's healthy for training camp, so the current picture doesn't look especially favorable for Smallwood, Josh Adams (shoulder), Boston Scott or Donnel Pumphrey. While he isn't particularly fast or powerful, the 25-year-old Smallwood has at least displayed a degree of versatility, averaging 4.2 yards on 87 carries and 8.2 yards on 28 receptions while playing all 16 games last season. If nothing else, he should be ahead of Scott and Pumphrey.
Kelce was able to tough out all three injuries and proclaimed Monday that he's fully healthy heading into the offseason program. He just signed a one-year extension with the Eagles on March 2 and is expected to be the highest paid center in the league next season. The deal is merited, given his willingness to play through injury and Super Bowl champion resume.
Hawkins' spot on the 53-man roster comes following the Eagles' decision to waive fellow cornerbacks Chandon Sullivan and De'Vante Bausby. The 25-year-old will play a depth role in Philadelphia's secondary, and he's expected to take most of his snaps on special teams.
Philadelphia traded up three spots to get its guy in Dillard, who looks to be the heir apparent for Jason Peters at left tackle. Dillard is considered the most polished tackle product in this class in terms of pass protection. Per Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus, Dillard had far and away the most "true pass sets" of any tackle prospect -- thanks in part to the Washington State offense -- and he turned out a high grade in those situations. The bottom line is that Dillard is both experienced and adept in pass protection and will be a major help on the line in keeping Carson Wentz upright.
McLeod participated in individual drills during this week's minicamp and appears very close to reaching a full recovery from last September's severe knee injury. When healthy, the soon-to-be 29-year-old is slated to serve as a key member of the Eagles secondary.
As injuries mounted up in the Eagles secondary, Douglas kept finding playing time and managed to lead the team's cornerbacks in snaps on the year while playing in all 18 games including the playoffs. He was also fourth on the team in tackles. With Ronald Darby set to walk this offseason, the 23-year-old should be in line to start again with Jalen Mills in 2019, but the duo will likely face competition from Avonte Maddox and Cre'von LeBlanc, who acquitted themselves nicely over the latter half of the season.
Clement has largely been out of commission since suffering an undisclosed knee injury Dec. 9 of last season. Six months later, it seems he's beginning to ramp up his activity level. Clement roughly has another two months before the start of training camp starts up, when he'll look to maintain his hold on the No. 3 tailback job under Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders (hamstring).
