Which Eagles Veteran Might be on the Roster Bubble?
The Eagles have plenty of interesting stories if and when they get to training camp in a few weeks.
With rosters likely to be condensed, it could making it more challenging for an undrafted rookie free agent, or lower-round draft pick to crack the 53 man roster. While veterans would seem to have the upper-hand for back-end roster spots, there are some veterans who will need to impress to keep their roster sport.
According to ESPN's Eagles Nation reporter Tim McManus, the one veteran player that is at risk to be cut is former third-round pick Rasul Douglas.
Douglas is a big, physical corner who has stayed relatively healthy and has flashed potential at times during his three seasons in Philadelphia, accruing five interceptions and 25 passes defensed over that span. He is hurt by his lack of recovery speed, however, leaving him susceptible to big plays. With the organization committed to getting faster across the board, it's fair to wonder whether Douglas remains a philosophical fit.
While Douglas is one name to keep an eye on, there are a few more who might need to impress at camp to keep their roster sport.
Other potential candidates includes Running Back Corey Clement, Wide Receiver Marquise Goodwin, and fifth-year Defensive Tackle Hasan Ridgeway could be players to keep an eye on.
