Here is the Eagles final 53 man roster. There is still wiggle room, Matt Barkley is reportedly being shopped, but as of now, these are the 53 players who will dress for the Jags’ game next weekend.
Quarterbacks: Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley
Running-Backs: LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Chris Polk

Defensive Lineman: Fletcher Cox, Benny Logan, Cedric Thornton, Vinny Curry, Taylor Hart, Brandon Bair, Beau Allen
Linebackers: Trent Cole, Mychal Kendricks, Connor Barwin, DeMeco Ryans, Marcus Smith, Najee Good, Casey Matthews, Brandon Graham, Bryan Braman
Secondary: Cary Williams, Bradley Fletcher, Nolan Carroll, Brandon Boykin, Nate Allen, Malcolm Jenkins, Jaylen Watkins, Chris Maragos
Kicker: Cody Parkey!!!!
Punter: Donnie Jones
Longsnapper: Jon Dorenbos
Cuts: Kicker Alex Henery, Wide Receiver Damaris Johnson, Safety and 2014 fifth-round pick Ed Reynolds, Wide Receiver Ifeayi Momah, Linebacker Emmanuel Acho, Running Back Matthew Tucker, Running Back Kenjon Barner, Cornerback Roc Charmichael, Running Back Henry Josey, Quarterback G.J. Kinne, Cornerback Curtis Marsh, Wide Receiver Quron “I’m not DeSean” Pratt, Wide Receiver Will Murphy, Linebacker Josh Kaddu, Offensive Tackle Kevin Graf, Safety Keelan Johnson, Guard/Tackle Josh Andrews, Defensive Tackle Damion Square, Defensive Tackle Wade Keliikipi
The two most significant cuts in my mind (we knew Alex Henery was getting cut) were Matthew Tucker and Damion Square. Both appear likely to be claimed on waivers, as Tucker was extremely impressive running the ball in the preseason and Square played a good amount of snaps last year after the Isaac Sopoaga trade. Square being cut is a sign of improved defensive line depth. I would have kept Tucker over Chris Polk, but I know that Chip Kelly is a big fan of Polk.
If either of them aren’t claimed and end up on the Eagles’ practice squad, it’s very possible they would dress at some point this year due to injuries.
