The 25-year-old was apparently out to eat with his family when he was punched unprovoked. Goedert made a precautionary trip to the hospital, but he checked out fine and was granted his release. The 2018 second-round pick had 607 receiving yards and five touchdowns last year, and he's poised to work behind Zach Ertz as Philadelphia's secondary tight end again in 2020.
Maddox played one fewer game than in his rookie season but managed to set new career highs in virtually every relevant category. He missed Weeks 5 through 7 with a neck sprain and a concussion but immediately returned to his role as the Eagles' starting slot corner, a role he'll likely reprise next season.
Johnson struggled with a foot injury early in the preseason, and he finished the exhibition stretch with an ankle injury. Once he's healthy, he'll be free to sign with another team.
Ostman had logged an impressive training camp prior to suffering a torn left ACL, an injury that was reportedly sustained during a special teams drill. The second-year pro will now turn his attention toward getting fully healthy for 2020.
The 2019 second-round pick was a huge disappointment as a rookie, catching only 10 passes on 486 offensive snaps. Arcega-Whiteside said nagging injuries were part of the problem, and he also mentioned the difficulty of moving around to different positions because of the more serious injuries his teammates suffered. He now should be able to focus on the X spot, which was occupied by Alshon Jeffery (foot) for the better part of the past three seasons. Jeffery is coming back from surgery and may not be ready for the season opener, but that doesn't mean Arcega-Whiteside will have anything given to him, as the Eagles also have rookie first-round pick Jalen Reagor and veteran speedster Marquise Goodwin as options to handle wideout snaps opposite DeSean Jackson. That said, coach Doug Pederson claims Reagor will start off learning the "Z" spot behind Jackson.
The Eagles continue to prioritize speed above all else in the latter stages of the 2020 NFL Draft, this time selecting the Stanford edge rusher, who posted a 4.62 40-yard dash at the combine. A smart and toolsy player, Toohill struggled mightily at stopping the run in college, but adding more weight -- depending on his positional classification at the professional level -- could help him stick on an NFL roster.
A report back in January suggested McCown had told the Eagles he wasn't ready to retire, but the GQ interview makes it sound like he's reconsidering his future in football. The veteran quarterback will turn 41 in July, and he's still recovering from January surgery to address the hamstring tear he suffered in a wild-card playoff loss to Seattle. Meanwhile, the Eagles have re-signed fellow backup quarterback Nate Sudfeld on a one-year contract.
With Nigel Bradham now with the Saints, look for Gerry to handle the team's defensive play-calling duties. The 25-year-old recorded 78 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 16 games (including 12 starts) last season. With a full-time starting gig on tap in 2020, Gerry could see enough of an uptick in production to merit consideration in IDP formats.
Bouka spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. He'll look to find a depth role elsewhere this offseason.
Avery suited up in just two games for the Browns this year, playing five total defensive snaps and making one tackle. He was far more productive last year, averaging 43 defensive snaps per game en route to 40 tackles and 4.5 sacks. That experience could allow the Eagles to leverage Avery into a useful depth asset while also deploying him on special teams.
Opeta spent time with the Eagles in the offseason, and he'll now get a chance on the 53-man roster. The Weber State product will provide Philadelphia with depth on the offensive line, and he could play a role on special teams.
Edwards only handled 115 defensive snaps across 16 games as a rookie. Though he officially logged four starts, he never played more than 22 snaps on defense in a single contest. If the undrafted linebacker out of Wisconsin is able to take a step forward in his development heading into the second year of his career, the Eagles could see fit to rely on him to handle an expanded interior role. At the very least, Edwards' ability to contribute on both defense and special teams should secure him a spot on the 53-man roster.
The Eagles picked up Ertz's 2021 team option back in March, setting him up for cap hits around $12.5 million the next two seasons. An extension for a 29-year-old tight end wouldn't be without risk, but it likely would increase the team's flexibility in the short term. Ertz should be fine for training camp, as he said in January that it would take him about one month to recover from the cracked rib and lacerated kidney that he played through late last season.
Riley was acquired by the Eagles in a trade last September. He quickly made an impression on special teams and was eventually named special teams caption for the team's playoff loss in January. With Jatavis Brown retiring, the 26-year-old is also now expected to compete for the third starting linebacker job aside Nate Gerry and T.J. Edwards. His competition figures to include Alex Singleton, Davion Taylor and Shaun Bradley.
This marks the end of the road for a great career from Sproles, who was a three-time Pro Bowler during his lengthy stint in the NFL. Sproles racked up 3,552 rushing yards, 4,840 receiving yards and 55 touchdowns from scrimmage and had nine special teams touchdowns as well.
Hall won't count against the Eagle's roster this season as long as he remains on the reserve/PUP list. He's still rehabbing from a torn ACL sustained on the final play of the 2019 regular season.
All four wideouts have two things in common: 1) they were acquired by Philadelphia in late April; 2) they're known for their speed above all else. Reagor, a first-round pick, is a roster lock and potential Week 1 starter, whereas Hightower (fifth round) and Watkins (sixth) figure to compete for depth roles. At first glance, it was difficult to see how both Hightower and Watkins would fit on the regular-season roster, but the Eagles may have room for the two similar rookies now that Goodwin is out of the equation. There's also a decent chance Alshon Jeffery (foot) misses the early part of the year, so the Eagles may find room on their roster for all six of Reagor, Hightower, Watkins, DeSean Jackson, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward. And even if only five make the cut, Hightower has a pretty good chance to survive.
Singleton failed to make the Eagles' season-opening roster but ended up on the practice squad, and he now receives the promotion to the 53-man roster heading into Week 7. The 25-year-old has yet to make his NFL debut but did spent some time in the CFL.
Jones didn't play a defensive snap in the postseason because the Eagles' secondary was fairly healthy. The 23-year-old remains under contract for another season, and he could have an increased role in 2020 if the Eagles don't retain Ronald Darby (hip) and/or Jalen Mills.
Jernigan never officially passed a physical, which is why the deal was never processed. However, he has been cleared to play by Dr. Robert Watkins. The 27-year-old is expected to draw interest from several other NFL teams.
Holyfield was signed after the regular season, as the Eagles entered the playoffs with an injury-riddled backfield. However, Miles Sanders (knee) and Jordan Howard (shoulder) played through their respective injuries while Boston Scott was available, so the 21-year-old Holyfield remained on the sidelines. The Eagles may retain Holyfield for another look this offseason, but he'll be vying for a special-teams role in 2020 wherever he lands.
Mr. Irrelevant of the 2019 draft, Wilson was cut by the Cardinals before Week 1. He later joined Washington's banged-up TE room in December but didn't make an appearance in the final three games. Now, Wilson has a chance to make an impression in an offense that utilizes two-TE sets often.
Pederson said in June that Reagor would start off studying the Z spot behind DeSean Jackson, who is now healthy after missing 13 games last season. But that plan assumes the Eagles have good options for the X and slot roles, which doesn't really appear to be the case with Alshon Jeffery rehabbing from Lisfranc surgery and Marquise Goodwin opting out of the 2020 season. The Eagles may need Reagor in a top-three role out of the gate, and his 4.47 speed in a 206-pound frame hints at inside/outside versatility. The X role probably offers his best shot at immediate fantasy value, as Jackson figures to take most of the Z snaps, while the slot receiver (possibly Greg Ward) will frequently come off the field to make room for No. 2 tight end Dallas Goedert. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is also expected to compete for the X job, but he'll need to take a big step forward from last year to avoid being left in the dust by Philly's first-round pick.
Jackson had season-ending surgery in early November to repair a core muscle injury, but there were some whispers he might try to return in January if the Eagles made a deep playoff run. The team's first-round exit prevented him from having a chance, and it sounds like it would've been a long shot in any case. The 33-year-old wideout is now entering the second season of a three-year, $27 million contract, with 77.4 percent of his $6.2 million base salary for 2020 guaranteed. Jackson has missed an average of 5.2 games over the past five seasons.
Graham played 16 games for the seventh time in the last eight years but hadn't made 50 tackles in a season since 2016. The 8.5 sacks came just one shy of the career-high he set two years ago. Heading into his age-32 season, the Michigan product has two years left on his deal with the Eagles and will be back leading the rotation at defensive end in 2020.
Detroit's signing of Desmond Trufant a day earlier likely expedited the trade of Slay, who was a prime candidate to get moved during the offseason. He'll immediately step in as the Eagles' No. 1 cornerback after earning Pro Bowl nods in each of the past three seasons. Slay tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions in 2017 and has a league-best 82 pass breakups over the past five seasons. His contract extension will deservedly make him one of the NFL's highest-paid defensive backs.
Mailata spent a little under two weeks on the reserve list and is the final of three Eagles to be activated. He'll now shift his focus to competing for a spot on the 53-man roster after missing the majority of last season with a back injury.
As a result, the wideout will need to be medically cleared before he can practice with the team. It remains to be seen when that will happen, but it's possible that Jeffery will shift to Reserve/PUP to start the coming season. In that case, he'd miss the first six weeks of the Eagles' 2020 campaign.
The Eagles add major speed to their linebacking corps with the addition of Taylor out of Colorado. He ran a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash at 228 pounds after a productive two-year career with the Buffaloes. He's still working on his play diagnosing and coverage instincts, but the physical tools make him an intriguing developmental project.
Scott did nice work in that same role late last year, scoring four TDs over the final four games of the regular season while averaging 4.0 yards on 38 carries and 8.7 yards on 23 catches. He also saw some work on punt and kick returns, so the inevitable Darren Sproles comparisons aren't solely based on his stature (5-foot-6). The Eagles probably wouldn't lean on Scott for huge workloads in the event of a Miles Sanders injury, but it is worth noting that the 25-year-old is listed at 203 pounds, making him stocky more so than small. Beyond Sanders and Scott, the Eagles have Corey Clement and a trio of undrafted young players in their backfield.
Though the Eagles used the 53rd overall pick in April's draft on Hurts, that investment alone won't give the rookie the leg up in the job battle with Sudfeld, who is entering his fourth year in the Eagles' system. The shortened offseason in light of the coronavirus pandemic will only make it more difficult for Hurts to gain familiarity with Pederson's offensive scheme, so his first year in the NFL could be more of a developmental one, at least from the perspective of a traditional quarterback. Hurts' skills as a runner may still allow him to see occasional snaps as a gadget player or Wildcat quarterback, but in the event of a Wentz injury, Sudfeld looks to be the next man up under center.
Rush was signed off the Raiders' practice squad earlier this week, but he originally signed with the Eagles after going undrafted out of UAB in April before waived over the summer. The 23-year-old should see a sizable role as he makes his NFL debut Sunday at Buffalo, with Tim Jernigan (foot) missing the last five games and with Hassan Ridgeway (ankle) and Malik Jackson (foot) on injured reserve. The only other healthy defensive tackle on the roster besides All-Pro Fletcher Cox is another undrafted rookie in Albert Huggins, who was also signed this week.
Perkins set new career marks in catches, yards and targets in his third pro season but still wasn't much of a fantasy contributor. The 26-year-old will become a restricted free agent in the offseason, so there is a good chance he will be backing up Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert again in 2020.
The Eagles prioritized speed in late April, trading for an Olympic long jumper (Goodwin) after they'd used three draft picks on wideouts with sub-4.5 speed. Watkins, a 4.35 burner, was the last of those three selections as a sixth-rounder, arguably making him a candidate for the practice squad more so than the active roster. However, his chances to make the team now look much better, with Goodwin sitting out 2020 and Alshon Jeffery slow to recover from Lisfranc surgery. It's still a long shot for Watkins to have a significant role early in the season, but he could at least manage a spot at the bottom of the roster, potentially competing with Hightower to log some snaps as a part-time deep threat.
Brooks' placement on the PUP list comes as something of a surprise, given that he looked destined to spend the entire 2020 campaign on IR after suffering a torn Achilles in June. The transaction leaves room for the possibility that Brooks could make a late-season return, perhaps in the event that Philadelphia makes a deep playoff run, though such an outcome should still be considered unlikely considering the severity of his injury. In any case, Jason Peters will draw the start at right guard in place of Brooks to kick off the season.
Curry's total of five sacks in 16 games last season with Philadelphia was his best mark since 2014. The 32-year-old, who also notched 27 tackles in that span, is a marginal IDP option, but he provides value to the Eagles defense as a rotational pass rusher.
The Clemson product was a three-year collegiate starter at strong safety, but his build (5-foot-11, 206 pounds) is one more prototypical of a cornerback. Though Wallace's tape showcases solid speed and consistent toughness as a tackler, he could struggle to match up with big-bodied intermediate receivers and tight ends. That said, Wallace showed well while handling occasional nickel responsibilities in college, and his versatility could earn him a quick path to playing time in Philadelphia's needy secondary.
The 2021 option is estimated at around $10 million, a hefty price for a defensive end that has missed 12 games over the past two seasons and has only logged 14 sacks since entering the NFL in 2017. The Eagles are evidently hopeful that Barnett can take a step forward in 2020, but if not, the team could cut him next offseason with few financial repercussions, as the fifth-year option is fully guaranteed only for injury.
The star right tackle has been cleared to join his teammates in time for the start of practice. Even with Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks (Achilles) out for the season, Philadelphia has the makings of a top-five O-line, with Johnson joined by Andre Dillard (LT), Isaac Seumalo (LG), Jason Kelce (C) and Jason Peters (RG).
The 2016 third-round pick spent the first four seasons of his career in Pittsburgh, and he totaled 60 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 16 games last year. The deal includes $26 million fully guaranteed as Hargrave is set to anchor Philadelphia's defensive line over the next few years.
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.
In each of his three years in the league, Elliott has logged at least an 83.9 percent success rate, earning himself a new five-year deal in the process. He did not miss a single field-goal attempt from inside 40 yards during the season, despite whiffing on two extra-point tries. The 24-year-old accounted for all of the Eagles' nine points in their wild-card loss and looks to be a fixture on the team for years to come.
Tucker was waived by the Lions on Monday but didn't make it through the waiver wire unclaimed. The offensive lineman was with Philadelphia in training camp, but he was let go in early August after suffering a concussion and eventually latched on with Detroit.
Wanogho wasn't able to participate in Auburn's Pro Day back in March while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, a development which likely contributed to him falling to the sixth round in April's draft. He showcased impressive technique and fundamentals as a three-year starter at left tackle at Auburn, despite having to compensate for underwhelming athleticism. Now healthy, the Eagles could see fit to have Wanogho (6-foot-5, 308 pounds) compete at guard rather than tackle in training camp.
Ward was a pleasant surprise for the Eagles last December, averaging 52.4 yards, 7.5 targets and 77 percent snap share over the final four games of the regular season. His role was born of necessity after the Philadelphia receiver group was crushed by injuries, but Ward quickly provided an argument that he should've been playing the slot ahead of Nelson Agholor all along. In any case, Agholor is now with the Raiders, and while the Eagles did add a few wideouts in the offseason, they've already seen Marquise Goodwin opt out of the 2020 campaign, while Alshon Jeffery (foot) remains on the PUP list. That leaves Ward, DeSean Jackson and Jalen Reagor as the favorites for snaps and targets in September, albeit with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, John Hightower and Quez Watkins also hoping to compete. Ward's slot ability could work in his favor in terms of securing a role, but it also means he's more likely to come off the field for multi-TE formations. Jackson and Reagor both come with more upside.
Davis started the season with Washington and saw action in three straight games from Weeks 2 through 4 but was let go after the only game in which he recorded a catch for the Redskins. The Eagles added the 24-year-old to their practice squad within the week, and he ascended to the active roster in December after Alshon Jeffery was placed on IR. Davis would appear in four games with Philadelphia, including the wild-card loss, but was only targeted thrice that whole time, making just one six-yard grab. He'll likely be a fringe roster component for the Eagles again next season.
Zangaro points to a Week 11 game against New England as evidence Mills can be more than just an outside cover corner. His stellar performance in that contest may have contributed to the Eagles' decision to let Jenkins leave for New Orleans in free agency, with Mills representing a cheaper alternative for the hybrid safety/slot role. That's not to say there won't be any drop off, but Mills has an opportunity to approach Jenkins' IDP production from six seasons in Philadelphia -- averages of 85.8 tackles, 9.7 pass breakups, 2.0 forced fumbles, 1.8 interceptions and 1.0 fumble recovery per year. Of course, Jenkins started all 16 games in each of those seasons, while Mills missed 15 contests over the past two years alone.
This is in the words of Eagles GM Howie Roseman, who recently used a first-round pick on Jalen Reagor (4.47 40), a fifth-rounder on John Hightower (4.43), a sixth-rounder on Quez Watkins (4.35) and even added Marquise Goodwin (4.27) in a pick swap. Roseman hopes the offense can add a consistent downfield element for the first time since Wentz's 2017 breakout season, with the aforementioned receivers competing for snaps that went to possession targets like Alshon Jeffery (foot) and Nelson Agholor last year. Jeffery's status on the team remains tenuous, at best, while DeSean Jackson seems to be in much better standing. It could even be argued that the team now has too many deep threats and not enough possession guys in the wideout corps, but that shouldn't be much of a problem if Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Miles Sanders stay healthy. While it doesn't come with any guarantees, the offseason makeover at least gives Wentz a ceiling that stretches beyond his 2018-19 production.
In his second professional season, Sweat displayed a strong pass-rushing presence, logging 15 quarterback pressures. The 22-year-old finished with 355 defensive snaps, ranking fourth among the Eagles' defensive ends behind Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett and Vinny Curry. Curry will be a free agent in March while both Graham and Barnett are under contract in 2020, so Sweat will likely work in a rotational role again.
The 28-year-old logged 36 tackles and two forced fumbles in 16 games (including three starts) for the Rams last season. He'll add depth to Philadelphia's cornerback corps, but Robey-Coleman is unlikely to be a factor in most IDP leagues.
James, who previously resided on Philadelphia's practice squad, logged 11 special-teams snaps compared to one defensive snap for the Eagles in Week 2 against Atlanta. He figures to again serve as depth/special-teams player during Thursday's game against the Packers, but that could change quickly if an injury forces another cornerback to join starter Ronald Darby (hamstring) on the sidelines. Wide receiver Greg Ward was waived in a corresponding transaction.
The move comes one day after the Vikings plucked Andrew Sendejo off waivers from the Eagles, so the two clubs essentially exchanged safeties. Epps, a rookie sixth-round pick, played predominantly in a special-teams role with the Vikings. However, Sendejo leaves behind a steady workload in Philly, so Epps has the opportunity to compete with Rudy Ford for opportunities on defense.
Ford notched six tackles across 10 appearances with the Eagles last season before going down with an abdominal injury. He also played a key role on special teams. Now healthy, the 25-year-old will compete to secure a similar role for 2020.
Those were the only two games of the season for Burnett, who joined Philadelphia's practice squad in mid-December before injuries necessitated his call-up. He was with the Jets in the preseason but spent the bulk of the year on the 49ers practice squad. The 22-year-old now heads into the offseason an exclusive-rights free agent and therefore will be back with the Eagles in 2020 if the club elects to extend him a qualifying offer.
Sudfeld made appearances in only three regular-season games through his first three years in the organization, completing 20 of 25 attempts for 156 yards and one touchdown. He dropped to No. 3 on the depth chart in 2019 after the Eagles signed veteran Josh McCown last August, but he'll head into training camp second in the pecking order after McCown wasn't re-signed. While the Eagles clearly have big plans for Hurts after nabbing him with the No. 53 overall pick in April's draft, the abbreviated offseason due to the coronavirus pandemic works against the Oklahoma product's chances of capturing a notable role in 2020, at least as a traditional pocket passer. Hurts could still see occasional snaps as a gadget player or Wildcat quarterback, but Sudfeld's prior familiarity with the Eagles' system and competent play when called upon in the past gives him a major leg up in the battle for the backup gig.
Jackson sustained a Lisfranc foot injury in Week 1 and was subsequently placed on IR. At this rate, he appears on track for most, if not all, of the offseason program, and he should be full-go by training camp. Jackson's last full season was in 2018, when he accrued 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks through 16 games with the Jaguars.
Ridgeway appeared in seven games (five starts) with the Eagles in 2019 after having been acquired from the Colts in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick. An ankle injury ultimately caused the 25-year-old to hit injured reserve, but he'll benefit from having returned to full heath in time to compete for a depth interior gig in training camp. Having failed to reach the 10-tackle mark in back-to-back campaigns, Ridgeway doesn't warrant fantasy consideration in the majority of IDP leagues.
Cox has logged between 40 and 46 tackles in three of the past four campaigns, but he turned in the second-lowest sack total of his eight-year career. He'll likely bounce back and re-emerge as a reliable low-end option in IDP leagues next season.
There's been discussion about the Eagles signing Devonta Freeman or another veteran running back, but it hasn't happened so far. The team appears ready to open camp with only Boston Scott, Corey Clement and a trio of undrafted young players behind Sanders in the backfield. The second-round pick held up to large workloads toward the end of his rookie season, averaging 15.7 carries for 71.7 yards and 4.2 catches for 34.2 yards (plus four TDS) over a six-game stretch that included four outings with snap share above 80 percent. Coach Doug Pederson has typically preferred committee backfields, but his current roster hints at a greater degree of dependence on one running back, namely Sanders.
Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the contract is worth up to $6 million, including $3 million guaranteed. Peters has Hall of Fame credentials as a left tackle, but the Eagles want 2019 first-round pick Andre Dillard to take over the blindside, while Lane Johnson is locked in at right tackle. As a result, the 38-year-old Peters is expected to be plugged in at right guard, where Brandon Brooks earned Pro Bowl honors with the Eagles each of the past three seasons. Brooks suffered an Achilles tear earlier this summer, ruling him out for the 2020 campaign. Peters made 140 regular-season starts for Philadelphia over the past 11 seasons, exclusively working as a left tackle. He hasn't played guard in the NFL.
The 32-year-old will reprise his usual role as Philadelphia's starting center. He received his third Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors last season while managing to play every snap for the Eagles.
Lauletta spent the 2019 campaign on the Eagles' practice squad. Now, he'll set his sight on securing the backup role to Carson Wentz (head) in 2020. Josh McCown showed he has plenty left in the tank after relieving Wentz in the wild-card loss to the Seahawks, but his contract expires in March. If McCown doesn't re-sign, it'll likely be between Lauletta and Nate Sudfeld for the No. 2 role, barring another acquisition through free agency or the draft.
The 24-year-old started his rookie year at 315 pounds but played about five pounds heavier for most of the season, and teammate Brandon Brooks (Achilles) said he's currently up to 335 pounds. Longtime left tackle Jason Peters hit free agency this offseason and remains unsigned, but the Eagles have committed to moving forward with their 2019 first-round pick. Dillard appeared in all 16 regular-season games during his rookie year and started four contests, so he at least got his feet wet as a starter as he takes over the full-time gig.
Parks evidently left more money on the table to join his hometown team. The 25-year-old quietly emerged as a starter for the Broncos last season, compiling 35 tackles across 14 games, and he likely will compete with Jalen Mills and Rodney McLeod for one of the two starting safety spots come the fall.
The Eagles won't pick up their 2020 contract option for Malcolm Jenkins, but they will hold on to the lesser known of their two starting safeties. McLeod was a 16-game starter in 2019, rebounding from a 2018 ACL tear to notch 76 tackles, six pass defenses, two interceptions and two forced fumbles while playing 99.2 percent of defensive snaps. PFF graded him at No. 52 out of 86 qualified safeties, with a 66.2 grade marking his first time below 70.0 since 2014.
The terms of Douglas' restructure remain undisclosed, but it looks likely that the 24-year-old has agreed to a more team-friendly deal in order to increase his chances of making the 53-man roster. Douglas normally plays a reserve role in Philadelphia's secondary, but he made six starts in 2019 due to an abundance of injuries to the team's cornerback group.
Clement was one of the unexpected heroes of Super Bowl LII, putting up a 4-100-1 receiving line to finish out a rookie season that he'd started as an undrafted special teams player. Injuries then limited him to 15 games the past two years, but he was cleared from shoulder surgery in April when he re-signed with the Eagles on a veteran minimum contract. Running backs coach Duce Staley and special teams coordinator Dave Fipp both praised Clement recently, perhaps hinting at a rebound season for the 25-year-old. While he doesn't have any one skill that stands out, Clement's combination of size, pass-catching competence and special teams experience makes him a sensible choice for the third or fourth RB spot on an NFL roster. He'll likely start training camp as the No. 3 choice behind Miles Sanders and Boston Scott.
Williams spent the offseason up to this point with the Eagles, but he'll now need to look for an opportunity with another organization. The 26-year-old appeared in two games with the Cardinals early in 2019, contributing entirely on special teams. From 2017-18 he logged 15 combined appearances with the Chargers.
