8 Confusing Roster Moves by Howie Roseman, Eagles


When Jeffery didn’t take part in a single day of training camp, it was seemed like a lock he would start the season the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would have kept him out until Week 7.


“The decision to activate Alshon is because we feel like if you kept him on PUP, that would mean basically he wouldn't be ready till the seventh game,” Howie Roseman said on cut-down day.


But the logic is the same — cutting a promising rookie to keep an older player (like Jeffery) on the roster was a short-sighted move at the time, and was a bad job reading the league by Roseman.


Eagles rookie receiver Jalen Reagor suffered a hand injury in the team’s Week 2 loss to Los Angeles.


Using two roster spots on Sudfeld and McCown seems especially bad after the Eagles have scrambled to find healthy receivers, cornerbacks and offensive linemen all season.


The Eagles having six running backs on the 69-man roster (active and practice squad) certainly seems a bit excessive, especially when as a result they have had to risk other players at more important positions to waivers.
