Philadelphia Eagles Preliminary 53-player squad for the 2022 NFL season

The Eagles have a preliminary list of 53 players for the 2022 season.

After weeks of boot camp, three joint training sessions and three pre-season games, the Eagles went from a 90-man roster to 53 by Tuesday’s 4pm deadline.

It is important to remember that this is only a preliminary list of 53 men, not the last. Menus change throughout the season. But this is the starting point for the 2022 team.

Here’s a look at the Eagles’ initial 53-man squad:

Midfielder (2): Galen Hurts, Gardner Menshaw

The Eagles chose to keep only the quarterbacks, ceding Red Sennett and Carson Strong. Sinnett was on their list of 53 players last season, but he should have fallen off the list with a poor performance this season. However, there is a chance that Sennett will return to the coaching staff. Strong barely had any coaching or reps for the game this summer despite being awarded a contract that includes $320,000 in guaranteed money.

Running Back (3): Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Kenny Jenwell

The Eagles chose to retain all three appearances on the list for the second consecutive season. Sanders has had a hamstring injury for a while but the Eagles are hoping to be back in time for their first week in Detroit.

Recipient (5): AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, Zach Pascal, Jalen Reagor

Despite much speculation that the Eagles would trade with RĂ©gor, he is on the initial list of 53 men. The Eagles have cut training camp darling Dion Kane, who may find his way back to the roster at some point and could be relegated to the coaching staff if he doesn’t claim it. The Eagles were also released by Devon Allen and Britannia Coffey.

Tight End (3): Dallas Guedert, Jack Stoll, Grant Calkatira

The Eagles released Noah Tugyai after a vigorous training camp and kept Calkatera’s selection in the sixth round. Calcatera missed a good part of the summer with a hamstring injury, but he’s played well since his comeback and the Eagles didn’t want to risk losing him. If Togiai cancels the concessions, he is a good candidate to return to the coaching staff.

Forwards (10): Jordan Milata, Landon Dickerson, Jason Kelsey, Isaac Sumalo, Lynne Johnson, Cam Jurgens, Andre Dillard, Soa Obita, Jack Driscoll, Josh Sales

Lake Regor, the Eagles kept Dillard despite some questioning whether or not they would trade him. The difference is that Dillard would probably have made more comeback, but instead sticks to the Eagles’ spare left tackle and he’s doing pretty well. To reach 53, the Eagles shot Jack Anderson, Leravine Clarke, and Kayud Oosica. Sells was a surprising inclusion on the list; It’s a UDFA from Oklahoma.

Defensive intervention (5): Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Milton Williams, Jordan Davis, Marlon Tuipuloto.

These five felt safe all summer. The Eagles cut Kobe Smith and Marvin Wilson on Tuesday to reach the limit. Tuipulotu, the sixth round pick from 2021, has really improved this summer.

Defensive End (4): Brandon Graham, Josh Sweet, Derek Barnett, Taron Jackson

The Eagles only had one cut in this position and they succeeded in releasing international player Matt Liu. These five felt safe throughout the camp. Jackson improved a lot in his second NFL training camp.

Sam Midfielder (3): Hasson Riddick, Patrick Johnson, Kieron Johnson

We all knew Reddick was the initiator in the position and it seemed clear that Patrick Johnson would be the replacement. But the Eagles also kept another Johnson, a sixth-round pick from Kansas, who came in strong late in the camp. Kyron Johnson is still growing as a passer-rusher, but he could be a strong contributor to special teams from day one.

Line-back (5): TJ Edwards, Keizer White, Nakobi Dean, Davion Taylor, Sean Bradley

Despite a shaky end to his training camp, the Eagles kept Taylor, who had been a former third-round pick. They also kept Bradley, who was one of the special teams during his Philly career. Edwards and the white figure will be the starters, while Dean should mix in the spin.

Back corner (6): Darius Sly, James Bradbury, Avonte Maddox, Zeke Macpherson, Josh Joby, Josiah Scott.

Jobe, UDFA of Alabama, made the list after a really strong showing all summer. So did Scott, who is adept at using nickels on the rear corner and safety.

Safety (4): Marcus Epps, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Kvonne Wallace, Reed Blankenship

The Eagles made two shock moves on Tuesday, laying off veteran debutante Anthony Harris and making the trade for Gardner-Johnson of New Orleans. While Gardner-Johnson primarily played a nickel corner in the NFL, he will likely move into the safety role with the Eagles. The vultures kept Blankenship Wallace, too. They cut Andre Chacheri.

Specialists (3): Jake Elliott, Aryn Sebus, Rick Lovato

Although Siposs struggled last year, the Eagles have never been in any competition this summer. The Eagles are bringing it back with these three specialists for a second season in 2022.
