Eagles Trade Matt Pryor, Release Fulgham and Huntley
The Eagles traded away a 2022 sixth-round pick to acquire quarterback Gardner Minshew on Friday.
Today the got a sixth rounder back, plus a 2022 seventh-round pick from the Colts in exchange for offensive lineman Matt Pryor.
Pryor, started ten games last year, but was not going to crack the Eagles rotation this season.
The team also released wide receiver Travis Fulgham, who was their leading receiver in 2020. The 25-year old caught 38 balls for 539 yards last season.
Releasing Fulgham means there is a good chance J.J. Arcega-Whiteside makes the team. You can anticipate that DeVonta Smith, Jalen Hurts, Greg Ward and Quez Watkins all make the team, giving the team six wide outs on the final roster.
Running back Jason Huntley also was released, he had five carries for 19 yards last year after being signed from the Lions.
Huntley being released means the team likely will keep Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, Jordan Howard and Boston Scott at running back.
The team must get down to the mandatory 53-man roster by p.m. today.
